Tori Amos has shared the first single off her upcoming 16th studio album, Ocean to Ocean. It's called "Speaking With Trees," and it's a piano pop song with an underlying sense of melancholy, fueled by Tori's kinetic keys and her unmistakably soaring voice. Tori wrote this album while in COVID lockdown, and according to a press release, this song is about "the pain felt by artists in a period in which there was no hope in sight for live music." Listen below.

Ocean to Ocean arrives digitally on 10/29 via Decca Records, with a vinyl release set for January 28 (pre-order).
