Oh man, are we excited for this or WHAT?!
Gurl sounds as though she is pulling out all the stops for this one!
Tori Amos announced today that her new album, which will mark her first release through the classical music record label Deutsche Grammophon, will be called Night of Hunters, and each track will not only follow a specific story, but also take inspiration from classical elements fused together with her original material!
“I have used the structure of a classical song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story. The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter. One of the main themes explored on this album is the hunter and the hunted and how both exist within us.”
Fascinating! We just LOVE how she's constantly exploring different facets of herself through her music!
The album will be released in September of 2011, and will be supported by a just-announced tour sharing the same name as the album, which will kick off in Helsinki on September 28th!
Oh, hell no! We are NOT missing this one!
