Tori Amos has announced the release of her 14th studio album.
Titled Unrepentant Geraldine
, it will be released in the UK on the Mercury Classics label on May 14.
The album is billed as "a return to [Amos's] core identity as a creator of contemporary songs following a series of more classically-inspired and innovative musical projects of the last four years".
Amos said in a press statement: "I've always been inspired by visual artists of all mediums because, as with music, art is not a job you can go to and leave from; but it is something that defines who and what you are. Visual artists shake up our brains and force us to look at everything, from objects we don't normally think twice about to people we might not have cared about.
"In one image they can remind us of nature's power to enchant, as well as humankind's fruitless attempt to overpower her or simply second-guess her. Through the Visual Artist's application of tone, shape, pattern, and pigment I not only begin to see, but I can honestly say I begin to hear."
Amos will support the album, her first collection of original material since 2011's Night of Hunters
, with an eight-date UK tour this May. Full details below.
