Tori Amos Announces New Album, ‘Native Invader’
On Sept. 8, Tori Amos will release her 15th studio record, Native Invader. It will be her first record since 2014's Unrepentant Geraldines and, according to her statement that accompanied the news, she's exploring the correlation between environmental and interpersonal issues.
"The songs on Native Invader are being pushed by the Muses to find different ways of facing unforeseen challenges and in some cases dangerous conflicts," she wrote. "The record looks to Nature and how, through resilience, she heals herself. The songs also wrestle with the question: what is our part in the destruction of our land, as well as ourselves, and in our relationships with each other?"
She continued, "In life there can be the shock of unexpected fires, floods, earthquakes, or any cataclysmic ravager - both on the inside and outside of our minds. Sonically and visually, I wanted to look at how Nature creates with her opposing forces, becoming the ultimate regenerator through her cycles of death and re-birth. Time and time again she is able to renew, can we find this renewal for ourselves?"
Amos also revealed the dates for the European leg of a world tour. She'll start in Cork, Ireland on Sept. 6 and work her way around the continent before concluding a month later in Glasgow, Scotland. Her North American itinerary is expected to be announced soon, and you can get full details on her website.
