Tori is not presently on tour.
Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble have both added audio clips to their listings for Where’s Neil When You Need Him?. So, we can now hear the first 30 seconds of the remastered version of “Sister Named Desire”. In addition, Amazon.com has also added a blurb from Neil about the compilation.
According to Led Zeppelin fansite Tight But Loose (scroll to the June 24, 2006 entry), Tori is one of several performers who have contributed commentary to Nine Lives, a boxed set collecting remasters of all of Robert Plant’s albums. The tenth disc in the box is a DVD, where Tori’s comments appear. The set is slated for a September 12th release on Rhino Records.
Amazon Germany is showing an alternate cover for the Pretty Good Years biography than other sites.
(Thanks to timmie for letting us know about this.)
Several people have asked us if the A Piano: The Collection boxed set is the “new album” Tori was reported to be working on.
No, it is not.
A new album is currently in the works; we expect it will be released sometime in early 2007 with a tour following shortly after.
Following up on the previous item we posted about an upcoming rarities box set, Undented has received a copy of the press release containing details of the set. A PIANO: THE COLLECTION, will be a five-disc, career-spanning box set consisting of classics, rarities, demos, B-sides and unreleased tracks. And yes, indeed, very exciting news for Toriphiles … Tori will finally introduce us to five very special songs: “Not David Bowie,” “Zero Point,” “Peeping Tommi,” “Ode To My Clothes” and “Dolphin Song.”
The next issue of Marvel Spotlight, a Marvel Comics publication, focusses on Neil Gaiman and Salvador Larroca and contains an interview with Tori.
In addition to speaking with Neil at length about The Eternals, Neil’s current project for Marvel, editor and lead writer, John Rhett Thomas, had a long chat with Tori about her relationship with Neil and their history together as friends and artistic comrades. The Tori interview is about six pages long and contains some info about the upcoming Neil tribute CD. John even managed to sneak in a pic of Tori on the cover.
This issue hits comic shops on Wednesday, June 28, and newsstand outlets like Borders about three weeks later. Anyone who wants to reserve a copy (because it’s Neil, it’s expected to sell out pretty quickly) can try ordering from Tales of Wonder.
(Much thanks to John Rhett Thomas and elasia for telling us about this.)

Lisa reports that the June/July issue of Bust (the issue with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover story) includes a Tori quote in “SheBonics—Out of the Mouths of Babes”, a regular column of the magazine. This issue’s column features quotes from women in music. Tori talks about how her work has been affected by her daughter Tash. Others quoted in the column include Julianne Moore, Liza Minnelli, Madonna, and Alison Goldfrapp.
Thanks to Lorna for letting us know that Tori’s quote was lifted from the RollingStone.com Q&A:
“I didn’t want her looking and hearing me and thinking, ‘Oh my God, that’s a scary lady!’”
