Tori Amos will kick off her European tour this September with a double stop in Ireland. The esteemed singer-songwriter – who’ll release her new album new album Native Invader via Decca Records on 8th September – will take in Cork’s Opera House on the 6th of September, and Dublin’s Bord Gais Energy Theatre on the 7th of September, before she goes on to play dates across mainland Europe and the UK.
Her 15th studio album, Amos says of the LP, “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?”
