After a series of image teasers posted on social media over the past week, Tori Amos announced the name of her new record, Native Invader, that will be released in September and posted this new picture that may or may not be the cover artwork (clicky clicky to embiggen). More details about the record are expected to be released come Monday via all the usual social media channels, we assume.
A tour to support the album was also confirmed with the dates for the European leg to be announced on Monday, April 24th – which means tickets will be going on sale for them pretty soon, one would expect!

Update 1: Danish ticket site billetlugen.dk has leaked some information about Tori’s upcoming new record and the European tour, as well as posting a new photo.
Native Invader will be released on September 8th on Decca Records. The tour starts in Ireland on September 6th and there will be a date in Denmark on September 23rd. Read on for some comments from Tori on fifteenth record!
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?
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?
P.S. Oh hai!
