Gold Dust

Last year, Tori Amos released Night of Hunters, an album where instead of working with the band she had for the last decade, was an orchestral pop album recorded with a variety of new musicians, including the Apollon Musagete Quartett. It made Billboard history by making Tori the first woman ever to end up in the top 10 for Billboard's Classical, Alternative, and Rock charts simultaneously. She's now following that album with Gold Dust, an album where she re-interprets songs from throughout her career in an orchestral setting. The album is due out on October 2 in the US and Canada and a day earlier in the UK via Deutsche Grammophon/Mercury Classics. You can stream Gold Dust in its entirety at Paste.

Tori will be performing the arrangements from her new album, "plus classic originals," in NYC at the intimate Le Poisson Rouge on October 5. The show is being presented by NPR, who will stream it live at their website and host an archive of the performance afterwards. No tickets to the show will be sold but there are a limited amount of tickets that you can win at Tori Amos' website and at WFUV.

All Tori Amos dates are listed below.

First a covers album and now re-interpretations? Wow, it's almost like she's out of ideas.

There are three rules that I live by:

1- Never get less than twelve hours sleep 2- Never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city
3- And never, ever date a girl who loves Tori Amos.

Now, you stick with that, and everything else is cream-cheese

Hope they come back around for a non-festival show. The Church of St Paul the Apostle show a year or 2 ago was phenomenal.
