Celebrated singer-songwriter Tori Amos shares her brand-new single “Better Angels” out now on Decca Records. This is the singer-songwriter’s first new music since the release of the 2017 album Native Invader. You can check the new song’s lyric video out below.
The dazzling track is taken from her new festive EP ‘Christmastide’, a special collection of four original tracks designed to celebrate the holiday season with her fans. The record will be released on 4th December, digitally and on limited edition vinyl with stunning Illustrations by graphic artist Rantz Hoseley, along with a special Christmas Card and message from Tori Amos. The EP is a celebration of hope and togetherness, featuring her trademark vocals and piano and it also sees the return of her longtime musical collaborators, drummer Matt Chamberlain and bassist Jon Evans.
‘Christmastide’ is quintessentially Tori Amos, with each track weaving together her thoughtful lyrics, haunting melodies and magical soundscapes. Speaking of the track, she says, “With “Better Angels”, I wanted to acknowledge the year we have all been through and know that there is hope. We can find that hope within ourselves if we continue to focus our collective minds and souls. We are slowly starting to find a clearer path to transform together for the better of all.”
In what has been an incredibly unexpected and turbulent time for us all, Amos wanted to create a safe space for her fans to reflect on the challenges the world has had to face.
Amos wants ‘Christmastide’ to be a celebration of togetherness and hope to reflect the gratitude she feels towards her fans, who have shown their unconditional support and understanding. She says, “We will get through these tough times together with strength in unity and hope.”
