Tori Amos has announced a world tour to coincide with the release of her new album Native Invader. The tour includes three UK dates with one set for Manchester’s Palace Theatre.
Native Invader is Tori Amos’ 15th studio album and follows 2014’s Unrepentant Geraldines. Native Invader is her first release on Decca Records.
Speaking of the new album the multiple Grammy nominated Tori Amos commented, “The songs on ‘Native Invader’ are being pushed by the Muses to find different ways of facing unforeseen challenges and in some cases dangerous conflicts. The record looks to Nature and how, through resilience, she heals herself The songs also wrestle with the question: what is our part in the destruction of our land, as well as ourselves, and in our relationships with each other?
In life there can be the shock of unexpected fires, floods, earthquakes, or any cataclysmic ravager – both on the inside and outside of our minds. Sonically and visually, I wanted to look at how Nature creates with her opposing forces, becoming the ultimate regenerator through her cycles of death and re-birth. Time and time again she is able to renew, can we find this renewal for ourselves?”
