Tori Amos has announced details of a new album, Ocean To Ocean and she has shared the artwork which you can see above.
The new record follows 2017’s Native Invader, while more recently, Amos released a book, Resistance, which was published by Atria in May last year.
The new record, which is set to come out on October 29 via Decca Records, was inspired by Amos’ time in lockdown in Cornwall.
“This is a record about your losses, and how you cope with them,” she said in a statement. “Thankfully when you’ve lived long enough, you can recognize you’re not feeling like the mom you want to be, the wife you want to be, the artist you want to be.
“I realized that to shift this, you have to write from the place where you are. I was in my own private hell, so I told myself, then that’s where you write from – you’ve done it before…”
Of the album’s inspirations, she added: “If you processed troubling things by traveling, that was taken off the table.
“My pattern has been to jump on a plane and go to the States. I would travel just to have new experiences. I had to find a chair instead, and ‘travel’ like I did when I was five – in my head.”
Ocean To Ocean is set to be toured around the UK and Europe next year, with the shows taking place in February and March next year.
