Tori Amos Releases New Song “Spies” from New Album “Ocean to Ocean”
- American singer-songwriter Tori Amos has released the second single called “Spies” from her upcoming sixteenth studio album “Ocean to Ocean”, following “Speaking With Trees”.
It was written and produced by Tori Amos.
The new album was written and recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in Cornwall, where she lives, with her writing inspired by her fascination with the county's landscapes and ancient myths.
The whole album touches on loss during the pandemic, explores environmental concerns, and personal crisis. Also part of her writing is including reaction to the US Capitol riots in January 2021.
Tori Amos described the album as “a record about your losses, and how you cope with them.”
The album is intended to “sit” with listeners, “I was in my own private hell, so I told myself, then that's where you write from—you've done it before. If you are in a place of loss. When somebody is actually at that place, thinking 'I'm done,' how do you reach that person? It's about sitting in the muck together.”
The new album is set to be released on October 29, 2021 via Decca Records.
