Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.
While I was off cavorting in Northern Illinois on a business trip for the first half of this week (go Ice Hogs!), a few Midwinter Graces tidbits popped up here and there.
First, the album will be released in Australia on Friday, November 6th in both the CD-only regular and CD/DVD deluxe editions. You can find it listed at JB Hi Fi and CD Online and other Australian vendors — assuming you haven’t already gone out to a local store and picked up a copy.
Update: matthew writes to say that the record was released on iTunes Australia yesterday as well and points out that, amusingly, the deluxe edition with the extra tracks and the video interview turns out to be the cheapest version. Go figure!
Second, Amazon.co.uk has added a short video clip from the DVD included in the deluxe edition of the album to their listings for each edition of the album. In it, Tori talks about the conversation she had with Universal Music’s Doug Morris that, along with the other influences she’s mentioned in various interviews, lead to this recording.
Third, Amazon.co.uk’s listing for the regular edition has been changed to say “Midwinter Graces (Includes Tori Amos Christmas Card).” One presumes that the image added to the listing — which also graces this article — would be the Christmas card in question.
Fourthly, back on the North American side of the Atlantic, Amazon.com finally got around to adding clips of each song to their listing for the release.
And finally, as mentioned at ToriAmos.com and Everything Tori, the album is now available for pre-order from iTunes — don’t forget that the deluxe edition sold at iTunes in the US includes one additional bonus track: “Good King Wenceslas”.
Many thanks to vic suteski, roel and David for catching all these tidbits!
