Tori Amos — Native Invader (Deluxe; Sept. 8th, 2017) •ς• Zpěvačka~pianistka vykreslí obrázkový blok 27~denního treku na podporu 15. studiového alba. Turné Native Invader začíná 24. října v St. Paul v Minnesotě a probíhá až do třínoční zastávky v The Theatre at Ace Hotel (Los Angeles) od 1. do 3. prosince. Ale ještě předtím ji uvidíme po celé Evropě 22x. For the tour, Amos partnered with Ticketmaster Verified Fan in order to separate “human fans like you from the scalpers and bots and giving you a better chance at getting tickets to the show.”
•ς• Native Invader is the celebrated singer~songwriter Tori Amos hotly~anticipated new album on Decca Records. Toris confessional style of writing sees her continue to push boundaries with her music. Her messages of empowerment, tenderness, acerbic assertiveness and her utterly peerless sound speaks to audiences across the globe. In this new album, Tori delves even deeper into her personal experiences, and the standard is there to be seen.
•ς• “I’ve always been inspired by visual artists of all mediums because, as with music, art is not a job you can go to and leave from, but it is something that defines who and what you are [...] Visual artists shake up our brains and force us to look at everything, from objects we don’t normally think twice about to people we might not have cared about. In one image, they can remind us of nature’s power to enchant, as well as humankind’s fruitless attempt to overpower her or simply second–guess her. Through the visual artist’s application of tone, shape, pattern and pigment, I not only begin to see, but I can honestly say I begin to hear.” — Tori Amos © Photo credit: Xavi Torrent

•ς• Native Invader is an intense feast of melody, protest, tenderness and pain. In the summer of 2016, Tori took a road trip through North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains. The intention was to reconnect with the stories and songlines of her mother’s family, who were from the North Carolina and Tennessee Smoky Mountain area. That winter, two seismic events knocked the plan off its axis. The fall out from the US Election. And in January her mother, Maryellen Amos, suffered a severe stroke leaving her unable to speak.
•ς• The complex influence of America’s alt~right Super PACs, lobbyists and think tanks informs much of the tension in Native Invader. “It wasn’t going to be a record of pain, blood and bone when I began,” Tori says. “It wasn’t going to be a record of division. But the Muses 9 insisted that I listened and watched the conflicts that were traumatizing the nation and write about those raw emotions. Hopefully people will find strength and resilience within the songs to give them the energy to survive the storms that we are currently in”. The sense of semantic distortion permeates Native Invader.
•ς• Tori talks of the need to form a “militia of the mind” in the face of national lies.
•ς• Please note: due to manufacturing & travel delays, unsigned vinyl & signed CD bundles will ship in October, signed vinyl bundles will ship in November.
•ς• Amos contributed the song “Flicker” for Netflix documentary film Audrie & Daisy’s ending credits. In a Billboard interview, Amos was asked about future plans, revealing there will be “another album next year. We’re in beginning stages and it might be a very different record beginning Nov. 9, but let’s see where we’re going.”
•ς• On April 18, Amos began a five~day countdown with a series of Instagram posts depicting a studio and a “sacred fire.” On the fifth day, the news was revealed to be a brand new album and world tour.
•ς• On April 23, an announcement was posted on Amos’ official website, stating:
•ς• “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?
•ς• 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?”
•ς• In her fan newsletter, it states in summer 2016 Amos took a road trip through North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains with intention to reconnect with the stories of her mother’s family. That winter, her mother suffered a stroke. With that and the 2016 United States election, the album took a different direction. Amos states, “It wasn’t going to be a record of pain, blood and bone when I began. It wasn’t going to be a record of division ... I listened and watched the conflicts that were traumatizing the nation and [wrote] about those raw emotions.”
