Tori Amos will release a new album, ‘Native Invader’, on 8 Sep, followed by some UK and Ireland tour dates in September and October.

“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”, says Amos. “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?”

She continues: “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?”

The dates will be exactly these:

6 Sep: Cork, Opera House
7 Sep: Dublin, Bord Gais
4 Oct: London, Royal Albert Hall
5 Oct: Manchester, Palace Theatre
6 Oct: Glasgow, Academy
