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.
Even though Unrepentant Geraldines is being released on Mercury Classics and Universal Music Classics, the other classical music imprints under the Universal Music umbrella, Deutsche Grammophon (on which Tori’s last two records were released) and Decca Classics, share catalog information in the back-end of their online stores. So, it comes as no surprise that the album appeared in the release sections of both labels’ websites today, though it’s bit easier to find on Deutsche Grammophon’s.
Track timings are shown for all songs with the regular album tipping the scales at 59 minutes long while the deluxe edition crosses the hour mark with the addition of the five minute long bonus track, “Forest of Glass.” Clicking on each track name reveals additional composer and performer credits, though they may not be complete as the only performers listed are Tori, Mac Aladdin (guitars), Mark Hawley (programming), and, on “Promise,” Tash — who, of course, would be Tori and Mark’s daughter Natashya Hawley.
The tracks on the deluxe edition DVD here also differ somewhat from Amazon’s listing. Where Amazon has three tracks, photoshoot footage, a studio video, and an interview, Deutsche Grammophon has four: “America,” two tracks both named “Unrepentant Geraldines” (which we take to the the interview and photoshoot footage), and “Trouble’s Lament.” So perhaps the deluxe edition will include an actual video of the single…or perhaps both it and “America” will be included as studio performances. Time will tell…
Deutsche Grammophon lists the vinyl edition as a two LP release, as does Amazon. Four 15 minute sides does seem a little excessive but is understandable given the album’s length and audio fidelity. It would be nice to maybe have three side of music and an etching on side D, a la Neko Case’s latest release on vinyl, but, frankly, we’re just happy to see it in this format no matter how it’s handled.
Thanks to mkgtweety for the pointer!
