This is going to be STUNNING!
We are SO thrilled!
With Tori Amos' last album, Night Of Hunters, the singer-songwriter infused her work with "classical music themes spanning over 400 years," and it sounds that she liked the direction she took with it! Tori has just announced that her thirteenth studio album, titled Gold Dust, will feature re-workings some of her most well-known songs - in orchestral settings, courtesy of the Metropole Orchestra!
And soon after its release, she'll be taking it on tour!
According to the official press release:
Songstress Tori Amos has a LOT to celebrate today!!!
Today, the singer announced that the FIRST artist signed to her new record label, Transmission Galactic, is the band The Adventures Of…!!!!
The band's debut album, titled Top Hats And Scary Tales, has just been released today, making it the first from her label! The album even includes a track with a guest appearance by Tori herself, on keyboard!
The British band, described as a “glammed-up indie-rock trio,” consists of Adam Hanington on vocals and guitar, Will Gee on bass and Drew Wright on drums!

Wow! Not gonna lie, one of her best performances of this song to date! Truly! This is so on point and so beautiful.
We may actually cry. Stand back.
Tori Amos was on The Rosie Show this week and beautiful performed some of her best music, including our favorite Silent All These Years.
Check out the video (above) to get lost in her hauntingly delightful music!
She just does something to our soul! We can't explain it — and we don't want to!

Oh man! We can't believe we missed this! We adore her so much! We can only imagine how this sounded live.
Back in December, when Tori Amos performed at the Orpheum Theater in L.A., she did a cover of one of our fave songs: Total Eclipse of The Heart.
If you couldn't be there like us, then come enjoy this video. (above) Her vocals are just … OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Taylor Swift announced on her Twitter that she had something that she was "VERY excited about for a VERY long time."
And boy, did she deliver with a wonderful early Christmas present!
The singer released a previously-unannounced song to the The Hunger Games soundtrack called Safe and Sound featuring The Civil Wars - and OMG, is it beautiful!
Very serene, a bit folksy - even reminds us a little of Tori!
LOVES IT!!! Listen to it above!!!
(Song's available on iTunes too!)
Faye Wong is on it! We told you she was popular all over Asia, and apparently she likes to make sure a wide range of her fans get in on the Tori love too!
We love it! If you haven't heard her Mandarin version of Silent All These Years yet, click here. In the words of SNL Miley Cyrus, that's pretty cool. Ha…
But back to Faye… we bet Tori Amos would love her covers too! And WE would love to hear even MORE American covers!!!
Uhm, Faye Wong should cover more things…like every one of our favorite songs!
After hearing her cover Tori Amos' Silent All These Years, we wanted to do a little research on this gem and we found out she's insanely popular in Asia!
She's also collaborated with the Cocteau Twins, and if you ever played Final Fantasy VIII, you'll know her from "the hauntingly beautiful" Eyes On Me.
Great to hear about all that, Faye, but GURL! We wanna see you cover more American hits now! More Tori for sure!
Do URself a favor an watch her rendition of Silent All These Years above!!
