This December 5th, Tori Amos will be performing in DC. Of course, we're going.

Her new album, Night of Hunters, comes out in September. This will be our 8th time seeing Tori live..and we're looking forward to it!

December is only less than 5 months away.

The new album is going to be released through classical label Deutsche Grammophon. Tori said this about the new album:

"It's a 21st century song cycle inspired by classical music themes spanning over 400 years. I have used the structure of a 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.”

I love how each of her albums is always a project, and not just an album for more songs. The songs all go together some how with each new's always neat when she announces a new album/project. It'll be interesting to see how this one ends up.
