Tori Amos announced that she will release her new LP Native Invader, her 15th studio album, this September. The album is the singer-songwriter’s first since 2014’s Unrepentant Geraldines.
“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,” Amos said in a statement of her new album, due out September 8th on Decca Records.
“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?
“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?”
In 2016, Amos marked the 20th anniversary of her acclaimed 1996 LP Boys for Pele with a deluxe reissue stocked with B-sides and other previously unreleased tracks.
Amos will tour North America in November and December in support of Native Invader.
