Tori Amos has announced that she will release a new album, entitled ‘Night Of Hunters’, in September via classical label Deutsche Grammophon.

Amos said of the new album: “It’s a 21st century song cycle inspired by classical music themes spanning over 400 years. I have used the structure of a song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story. The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter. One of the main themes explored on this album is the hunter and the hunted and how both exist within us”.

Following the release of the album, Amos will also tour, playing a number of shows in the UK and Ireland in November. In addition to this, Amos’ previously reported first musical ‘The Light Princess’ is due to open at the National Theatre in London in April next year.

Tour dates:

2 Nov: London, Royal Albert Hall
4 Nov: Manchester, Apollo
6 Nov: Glasgow, Royal Concert Hall
8 Nov: Belfast, Waterfront
9 Nov: Dublin, Grand Canal Theatre
