    Vinyl And Deluxe Editions Confirmed

    Tuesday, July 11, 2017 | 13:34 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Buried in the tour announcement yesterday, beneath all the hoopla about the Verified Fan pre-sales, were some additional details about the formats of Native Invader. None of this seems to have been mentioned on or official social media channels yet but embedded in the press release that many venues used on their listings for the performances is the following (emphasis ours):

    Tori Amos is one of the most successful, prolific and influential artists of her generation. Native Invader is Tori’s fifteenth studio album, following 2014’s Unrepentant Geraldines – her eighth Billboard Top 10 album — and will be made availble in various physical and digital configuarions, as well as vinyl later this fall. The physical CD package will be available in standard as well as deluxe offerings; the latter includes a hardcover book and two bonus tracks. Native Invader’s evocative album cover art was unveiled over Tori’s social media platforms on July 6th.

    So, as one might have guessed, there will be a deluxe edition of the album with bonus tracks. No word yet about whether there will be bonus tracks for specific retailers though. And, gotta say, that hardcover book sounds intriguing!

    Also nice to see that a vinyl release is coming! Yay! however, given the recent completion of the album and the longer wait time for manufacturing and pressing vinyl, it won’t be available on the September 8th release date. Boo! Additionally, it’s not yet clear if the vinyl will have regular and/or deluxe editions.

    Tour Dates! Ticket Sale Info! Oh My!

    Monday, July 10, 2017 | 11:23 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases,Touring

    Update: The splash page on has been updated with the date for the North American leg of the tour and ticket information, including pre-sale and general sale information. We’re a little stacked so here’s a quick’n‘dirty cut’n‘paste. We’ll get the tour dates added to the Tour section later today.

    Update: All dates have been added to the Tour section!

    We have some amazing news regarding tickets for the Native Invader North American Tour. We are working with Ticketmaster who have a great new presale platform called “Verified Fan” which separates human fans like you from the scalpers and bots and giving you a better chance at getting tickets to the show. Once you register, the system randomly picks a select number of verified fans who will get a one-time use only code to get tickets.

    Registration Begins: on 7/10 at 9:00 AM PT and closes on 7/11 at 2:00 PM PT

    (Step 1)


    (Step 2)

    IF VERIFIED AND RANDOMLY SELECTED, you’ll receive a one- time use offer code to access tickets. you’ll receive two text messages: your purchase link and timing followed by your single use offer code. Keep your phone handy — your notification will arrive 2-4 hours before the presale. Please also watch your email, if they have any issues with text delivery, such as an incorrectly entered number or blocked carriers — they will email you your details prior to the presale. The presale begins promptly on Wednesday 7/12 10AM (venue local).

    Tori Shares Native Invader Cover Artwork

    Thursday, July 06, 2017 | 13:26 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Over the past few days, several unconfirmed tour dates have popped up on ticketing sites, radio station websites, and local music blogs. And just as quickly as they appeared, they disappeared leading us to think we have a little longer wait until the full set of dates on the North American leg of the upcoming tour are announced — presumably with a flourish and a fog machine coughing out a puff or two of smoke!

    Given that, it came as no little surprise when, sans fanfare, the cover artwork for the new album just appeared on Tori’s Instagram this morning! As mentioned there, the artist is Paulina Otylie Surys and you can check out more of her work on her Facebook and Instagram accounts.

    In the meantime, bask in the glow!

    Update: Just went up on Tori’s Twitter and Facebook that there will be an announcement on Facebook Live on Monday, July 10th at 9:00 AM PT / 11:00 AM CT / 12:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM GMT. Presumably, this will be the long-awaited dates for the North American leg of the tour supporting Native Invader…or maybe some tips for selecting the best, affordable red wines? Guess we’ll see!

    Tori Announces New 2017 Album And Tour

    Sunday, April 23, 2017 | 15:18 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases,Touring

    After a series of image teasers posted on social media over the past week, Tori Amos announced the name of her new record, Native Invader, that will be released in September and posted this new picture that may or may not be the cover artwork (clicky clicky to embiggen). More details about the record are expected to be released come Monday via all the usual social media channels, we assume.

    A tour to support the album was also confirmed with the dates for the European leg to be announced on Monday, April 24th – which means tickets will be going on sale for them pretty soon, one would expect!

    Update 2: Dates for the European leg of the tour have been posted on Tickets for most shows go on sale this week while a couple won’t be for sale until the following week. Dates are:

    Update 1: Danish ticket site has leaked some information about Tori’s upcoming new record and the European tour, as well as posting a new photo.

    Native Invader will be released on September 8th on Decca Records. The tour starts in Ireland on September 6th and there will be a date in Denmark on September 23rd. Read on for some comments from Tori on fifteenth record!

    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. 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?

    P.S. Oh hai!

    Little Earthquakes And Under The Pink Re-issues Released This Week!

    Tuesday, April 14, 2015 | 03:23 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Calloo Callay! The deluxe re-issues of Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink are out today!

    Well, at least in Europe. North America has to wait until Tuesday for these remastered albums with extra tracks to see the light of day and, if you believe JB HiFi, Friday is the release day in Australia. Of course, many pre-orders of the CDs and vinyl have already shipped and and been received in the US and Canada.

    Complete streams of both re-issues are available on YouTube, kindly uploaded by Rhino Records. Give ‘em a listen if you’re mulling over picking them up or want to but aren’t able to do so just quite yet…

    Things That Make You Go Hmmmm...

    Tuesday, February 03, 2015 | 11:53 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Update: And lookie at what popped up today…

    We wonder why this picture of the Little Earthquakes “mushrooms” appeared on Tori’s official social media channels last night…and we wonder if a bit of the artwork from Under the Pink will show up today.

    Rhino To Reissue Little Earthquakes And Under The Pink?

    Saturday, January 31, 2015 | 23:46 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    If one believes listings, it would appear that Rhino Records, the label that brought you A Piano: The Collection, will be re-issuing Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink on April 21st!

    According to the listings, the CD editions of both albums will include a second disc with most, though not all, b-sides from each album’s singles. Both re-issues will be available on vinyl as well, though, it appears, as a single long-player, without the b-sides disc. We’d guess, however, that the vinyl will come with a digital download for the whole collection or, possibly, will include a copy of the CD as well — some labels do that these days.

    As of now, there is no mention of these releases on Rhino’s website or but hopefully there’ll be more details soon…

    Jump the cut for the track listings snarfed from Amazon…


    The Promise Video Premieres On Jezebel!

    Wednesday, July 30, 2014 | 19:27 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases,Video

    As one may recall, in between the European and South African legs of the tour, a video for “Promise” was filmed, featuring both Tori and her daughter Tash. If, like us, you’d been wondering when the video would be made available, wonder no more! It has been premiered today on Jezebel! Head on over to check it out!

    And while you’re there, scroll down a wee bit farther for a new interview that was just done last week, before the show in Mesa, Arizona.

    The Trouble's Lament Video Premieres!

    Wednesday, May 28, 2014 | 17:36 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases,Video

    After some tantilizing photos from the set and an all-too-brief teaser during an interview on BBC Breakfast, the video for Trouble’s Lament has finally been revealed on Entertainment Weekly!

    Sit back with some coffee (or perhaps something a little stronger) and watch the tale of Trouble and Satan unfold…

    Unrepentant Chart Action!

    Thursday, May 22, 2014 | 15:05 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Unrepentant Geraldines has been out on the world for over a week now and the first weekly charts in which it has placed have been been released over the past few days.

    We were pretty excited to hear the news that the album debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart at #7 with over 20,000 copies sold during its first week. That’s the highest debut for any of her albums since American Doll Posse in 2007 which also debuted at #7 on the US album chart. In the United Kingdom, the record flirted with the top ten on the mid-week charts but landed on the final weekly chart for its first week of availability to debut at #13. Elsewhere, it placed #10 in the Netherlands, #15 in Germany, #17 in Austria, #20 in Switzerland, #40 in Finland, and #154 in Belgium.

    Congratulations to Tori and her team for the success of the new record and let’s hope that the record continues to hang around the top of the charts for the next few weeks and as the tour continues through the summer!
