    Unrepent! For The Time Is Here!

    Tuesday, May 13, 2014 | 13:30 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    It’s been a long time coming but with the release of Unrepentant Geraldines in the United States and Canada today, Tori’s 14th album is now out in most of the world! Whether you’ve opted for digital, CD, vinyl or streaming audio, now’s the time kick back, put on those headphones and delve into her new work. Hope everyone is enjoying it!

    Listen to Unrepentant Geraldines on Amazon!

    Thursday, May 08, 2014 | 03:31 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Amazon added the digital version of Unrepentant Geraldines to their catalog at the end of last week but as of today, you can listen to the whole record — including “Dixie,” a bonus track exclusive to Amazon’s MP3 Store — until May 12th, the day before the album is released in North America! There are no controls for the stream so it can only be listened to straight through can’t listen to single songs but if you want to get a taste of what the new record is like, this is a great way to do so — and make sure to catch “Dixie” at the end!

    All Songs Considered Premieres "16 Shades Of Blue"

    Wednesday, May 07, 2014 | 03:14 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases,TV/Radio/Web

    This week’s episode of All Songs Considered includes the premiere of a third song from Unrepentant Geraldines: “16 Shades Of Blue!” During the show, hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton listen to and then discuss what they think of it. Spoiler: they like it!

    If you just want to hear the song, stream it with NPR’s media player from the playlist on the show’s page.

    Alternatively, stream or download the whole program to hear Robin Hilton’s thoughts on the song after they play it. It’s the first song they review but the rest of the program is worth a spin too with songs by Zee Avi, Solvents, Fenster, Alice Boman, and Milezo.

    Unrepentant Geraldines On Amazon MP3

    Saturday, May 03, 2014 | 15:04 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Unrepentant Geraldines has been added to the European Amazon MP3 stores and, as suspected, includes yet another bonus track: “Dixie.” While the album has not been added to the Amazon stores in the Americas yet, we’ll hazard a guess that they’ll include “Dixie” as well once it is — just as all counties’ iTunes stores have included the bonus track “White Telephone to God” once the album was added to each store.

    Curiously, neither iTunes nor Amazon currently have a deluxe edition of the album in their digital stores. It’ll be interesting to see if they do get added eventually and what, if any, differences they will have from either the physical deluxe edition, which includes the bonus track “Forest of Glass” and the DVD, or the existing digital editions.

    We’ve also heard from Marcel that “Dixie” is available from the music service Deezer in at least Poland and, we would guess, other countries where that service operates. Again, this makes one wonder if other music services such as Spotify and Rdio will have any extras as well.

    iTunes Adds Unrepentant Clips

    Friday, May 02, 2014 | 13:46 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Last weekend, clips of all songs Unrepentant Geraldines were added to German retailer JPC’s listings for the album. They were removed before we had a chance to even mention it on the site. However, clips of all songs have now been added to iTunes, including the iTunes-only bonus track “White Telephone to God.” There are 30 second clips on the web and 90 second clips in the iTunes store.

    If you can’t wait to get a taste of the record beyond “Trouble’s Lament” and “Selkie,” here’s you chance!

    Update: also has 30 second clips of all songs, but only for their listing of the deluxe edition. Thank you Andreas!

    And speaking of “Trouble’s Lament,” an official lyric video has been released for the song. (Fear not though: the proper music video, filmed in London earlier this month, is still to come…)

    Experimental Geraldines

    Wednesday, April 23, 2014 | 01:14 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases,TV/Radio/Web

    Another week brings another teaser clip — the fourth — from what we presume to the be the interview included with the Unrepentant Geraldines bonus DVD. In this very brief snippet, Tori addresses her need to experiment on the new record and her hope for how the songs on it will be heard.

    Your April 14th Unrepentant Geraldines Update

    Tuesday, April 15, 2014 | 02:27 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Update: The album, with “Selkie” available for immediate download, has been added to the US and Canadian iTunes stores as well.

    Note: iTunes describes the album as the “bonus track version.” It does not include the videos from the bonus DVD in the deluxe physical edition. It wouldn’t be surprising if a deluxe edition with the bonus video material is added later, so if you are interested in that, you might want to hold out for that edition to be added to iTunes.

    While the announcement of the Unrepentant Geraldines Pre-Sale Sweepstakes indicated the album would be available for pre-order from iTunes starting Tuesday, April 15th, Apple’s friends in the United Kingdom added the album today and are already taking pre-orders for it. We’ve not been found the album available for pre-order in any other countries — though we’ve not checked each and every country’s storefront yet.

    The album on iTunes UK contains one bonus track, “White Telephone to God,” a difference from the bonus track included in the deluxe CD/DVD edition of the record, “Forest of Glass.” There’s no indication whether or not “White Telephone to God” will be an iTunes exclusive or if that track will be available from all digital retailers. We’re hoping that mystery will be cleared up soon though, perhaps as early as tomorrow, as one would expect some sort of announcement about the album being added to iTunes for pre-order.

    Curiously, the album track “Selkie” is available from the UK iTunes store now, without having to pre-order the record! We’re not sure if this is intentional, if the song is meant to be an immediate download when pre-ordering the record, or if it’s an error waiting to be corrected — but if you have an UK iTunes account, you can buy that song right now! Of course, you might as well pre-order the record while you’re at it.

    Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Rough Trade Records in New York City has announced that Tori will be making an appearance at their store in Williamsburg on the evening of Tuesday, April 29th at 7pm. The appearance will include a performance and an signing session. To get into the event, you’ll need to be pre-order the new record in person at the store starting at 9am on the morning of April 29th. That’ll get you a wristband which will grant you entry to the event that evening. Space is limited, reportedly to 200 wristbands, so you’ll have to get there early for a shot to get in.

    More From The Making of Unrepentant Geraldines

    Wednesday, April 09, 2014 | 00:43 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases,TV/Radio/Web

    A second clip of Tori discussing Unrepentant Geraldines was posted on the offcial YouTube channel today. In this minute long snippet, Tori talks about being — or not being — shocking and the interplay of age and message with respect to the new record.

    Check it out below:

    Suppose that rules out another pig-suckling photograph, huh?

    Unrepentant Germany

    Tuesday, April 08, 2014 | 23:50 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Today was a good day to be in Germany — Berlin specifically — as Tori did a short performance during an invitation-only event kicking off the promotion of Unrepentant Geraldines.

    Taking place at The Grand, attendees included record label dignitaries, music journalists, and a lucky few who win entrance to the event via a contest run by Klassik Akzente. The set included six songs: “Parasol,” “Lust,” “Trouble’s Lament,” “Selkie,” “Ribbons Undone,” and “Take To The Sky.” Following the set and networking, there was a meet’n‘greet as well.

    Several photos were posted on the official Tori Amos Instagram from Berlin today, though none from the actual event itself. Hopefully, this is a good sign for more interesting transmissions from the road once the tour gets going next month!

    Additionally, one fellow who was in attendance blogged about being there. A few other friends of the Undent were there as well and we are hoping to receive their accounts of the evening soon as well.

    Unrepentant Details From Decca And Deutsche Grammophon

    Friday, April 04, 2014 | 02:27 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    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.

    Both labels include the same information about the three formats Unrepentant Geradlines will be released in: regular CD, deluxe CD/DVD and vinyl.

    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!
