    Huffington Post Interview (September 24, 2012)

    Wednesday, September 26, 2012 | 05:48 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    How in the world am I going to sound like a fairy on crack when I’m in my late 40’s if I smoke? No! My daughter is into blues and she asked me, “Why didn’t you ever sing blues?” And I said, “Fairy on crack can’t sing blues!” But it’s just how my voice sounds!

    Noah Michelson continues his winning streak in the interview contest, producing yet another epic article. This time for the Huffington Post, he draws out a wealth of responses to questions both typical and atypical hitting on topics such as Tori’s thoughts on several songs on Gold Dust, her muses, being visited by the spirits of artists past, Little Earthquakes, Y Kant Tori Read, and drugs. A most refreshing romp that is definitely worth a close read.

    The Arts Desk Interview (September 24, 2012)

    Wednesday, September 26, 2012 | 05:48 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    The thing is, [the songs] take on an aura of their own as other people’s stories become a part of their history. They’ve been traveling around the world for a while now, and other people have had experiences with them that are all a part of who the song has become – her lineage. So when I play them they are transforming all the time, because of the stories people tell me about their relationship with the songs.

    Lis Ferla interviewed Tori for The Arts Desk and their conversation ranged from the beginnings and production of Gold Dust to touring with the Metropole Orkest to the lives that Tori’s songs develop on their own out in the world.

    Of particular interest to fans in the United States, Tori responded to a question about touring in the US saying, “In the States, we’ll be doing something with a smaller section at a few choice events.” Notice the plural! Events! Given that, we’re hopeful that there will be more performances in the US in addition to the Infinity Hall Live taping announced yesterday.

    El Pais Interview (September 23, 2012)

    Wednesday, September 26, 2012 | 05:47 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    We live in a world of hyperactive people who have forgotten to live with romance, who cannot go a minute without sending a message. To me, a nice time with a man should last 72 minutes of a CD and not a length of a single song . And no, I do not mean just sex, which of course should also take the measure of an entire disk, but 72 minutes of attention, without touching the phone, drinking a good wine.

    During the afternoon before last weekend’s conversation with Jon Pareles for the Times Talk Madrid series, Tori spoke with Elsa Fernández-Santos for the Spanish newspapare El Pais. The resulting article was posted on the web the same day. Within the context of looking back over her career, she mused on the subjects of books, albums and attention spans.

    After the cut, we’ve got both the original Spanish and a quick-and-dirty translation to English. It’s not perfect but it gets the gist.

    Relevant.de Interview (September 21, 2012)

    Wednesday, September 26, 2012 | 05:47 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    [I worked with The Metropole] because they were the ones who invited me. It is not always the case that the most famous man gets the woman. It is the man who thinks to ask them.

    In an interview for Austrian website Relevant, Tori answers questions about Gold Dust, working with the Metropole Orkest, The Light Princess and, for the first time that we can recall, Transmission Galactic, the record label that she’s founded.

    Jump the cut for the original German and Google-translated English of the interview.

    Attitude's Got Tori

    Wednesday, September 26, 2012 | 05:47 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    The September issue of Attitude features British Olympians, sex and, cos why not, an interview with Tori. The interview is not online, alas, but we hear its a good one. You can pick up a copy of the magazine at your local British newsstand or snag a copy of the digital edition for your most favored digital device. Hopefully the interview will eventually find its way into their online archives as well…

    El Mundo Interview (September 21, 2012)

    Saturday, September 22, 2012 | 19:41 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    Friday afternoon, Tori visited the offices of Spanish newspaper El Mundo to do an online interview where she fielded questions submitted by readers on their website. She responded to a total of eight questions and, unsurprisingly, the first query was about when she would come to play a concert in Spain. Her response will please many on the Iberian peninsula as she said, after focusing on The Light Princess in 2013, she is hoping to come to Spain in 2014, when touring in support of her next album. Good news indeed!

    Read the full Q&A in Spanish as well as Google-translated English after the jump.

    PopMatters' Performer Spotlight To Shine On Tori

    Saturday, September 22, 2012 | 16:57 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    Keep a close eye on PopMatters over the coming days as the release of Gold Dust draws near as Tori will be the first musician to enjoy the lavish attention of their Performer Spotlight.

    The week-long series will feature segments from a lengthy interview with Tori they did for release of Gold Dust — a snippet of which explaining the lack of orchestral shows outside of Europe is included in the announcement about the series — as well as an artist-guided tour through all of Tori’s oeuvre, starting from Little Earthquakes and culminating in the Gold Dust retrospective.

    Very much something to look forward to! Thanks to Pavel for the pointer!

    Rolling Stone Interview And Song Premiere (September 18, 2012)

    Tuesday, September 18, 2012 | 23:08 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles,TV/Radio/Web

    For this record, these “song-girls” have passports, they’ve been around the world. I’ve met a lot of people, who in turn told me their stories about my music, so each song has endless Polaroids attached to it. It’s been building over the years.

    Rolling Stone kicked off the promotion for Gold Dust in earnest with a lengthy interview which addresses key points about the record from building context for the collection to song selections. Perhaps of greater interest though is that two full songs from the album, “Silent All These Years” and “Gold Dust,” are included with the interview for everyone’s listening pleasure! So while reading the interview, check out the songs on Rolling Stone’s Hear It Now player.

    Daily Beast Interview (September 17, 2012)

    Tuesday, September 18, 2012 | 03:30 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    Don’t think I’m not singing along when Natashya has “Call Me Maybe” on the radio. But we sing “Kill Me Maybe.”

    The Sexy Beast, the Entertainment and Fashion wing of The Daily Beast, posted this interview with Tori on their site today. While the the first part of the article, dealing with the perils of pop/classical crossovers, echoes many of the statements Tori made about Night of Hunters, the rest of the piece, addressing the current state of pop music as well as future plans — The Light Princess in 2013 and, “if the muses comes,” a record of new pop-rock material to follow. Call us maybe indeed!

    The Big Issue Interview (September 12, 2012)

    Friday, September 14, 2012 | 02:15 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    “I sit here and watch the lizards outside and sing to them for hours at a time. Believe it or not there’s this song, Cloud On My Tongue, that they really like. We have a redwood deck at the back where they show up really well. You can see them gathering. You know that if it works for the lizards, it might work at the Royal Albert Hall.

    A brief but fun interview appeared on the website for UK magazine The Big Issue today. While more quip clips than actual interview feature, it’s a quick romp though subjects both usual and unusual — Tash, touring, writing songs, living in Florida — that’s punchy and has a different feel than the usual interview not to mention a cute illustration by Matt Hollings.
