    From Cine Electric's Twitter:
    Generator & Lighting package on route for Tori Amos album cover and interviews about 18 hours ago via Facebook

    From Tori's Pori interview last July:

    "I've been approached to a do a really different kind of project, it's not announced yet...something fascinating. I've been approached and I've never done something quite exactly like this. I've been developing a musical which will hopefully be happening in 2012, but THIS is very different than that, this is something that *I* would perform. And so it's high concept...very concept-oriented. It's not a traditional contemporary pop record." She says this will likely be her next project, before another traditional album. "This little's very different, it's not pop-driven and that's why I'm fascinated. Sometimes as a composer and a pianist, pop structures can very confining, especially after working on the musical. So fingers crossed that it happens."

    Tori's on the front page of their site, and they chose quite a random picture. (I didn't know she was doing shows this year)

    Oh, that's not the front page. I found it in the news archive, it's from last july, when she did the show in Pori and gave that interview.

    If there is a new album in the works, please please please make it a piano instrumental record... Tori, that's the only thing I think could redeem you at this point...

    Piano, yes, instrumental, no thanks. I don't think we'll be getting a new studio album until the late 2012 at the earliest.

    I don't think it is a new traditional album. I think we might be getting that top-secret conceptual non-pop project she briefly talked about last year. That's the info we got at the time:
    -She was approached to do different kinds of projects that are not announced yet. One of which is a very concept-oriented thing which she cannot talk about yet, and it's not pop-driven.
    -The musical is happening in late Spring 2012 hopefully.
    -A new proper Tori record might come after the musical (late 2012 / early 2013) and no touring for an album before that.

    - We also she has recorded with the Metropole Orchestra for some sort of release
    - I also just looked up the thread about the fan's bathroom phone call with Tori because I remember something was said there. She said that the project was inspired by her work with the orchestra.

    So I wonder if this is something separate to the supposed tour coming in the autumn? Intriguing.

    The tour in the autumn is bound to be promotional for whatever this new thing is right?

  11. #11
    Hm, I assume so, but I don't get all this 'this is something that I would perform' stuff she said. She always performs at her concerts so what's the difference with this one?

    Maybe its Tori's recordings of the Light Princess songs? That would explain the "I would perform" opposed to the actors etc? Guess we'll be finding out soon enough!

  13. #13
    ^^Yep, could be that. The suspense is already killing me!

  14. #14
    Well, if it is The Light Princess, and Winter's Carol is anything to go by..then..great!
