Tori Amos, New Book "Piece by Piece" and New CD "The Beekeeper"
Tori Amos will in February release a new studio album
and publish her first book. Due Feb. 22, the
singer/songwriter's eighth studio album and second for
Epic is dubbed "The Beekeeper." Amos is self-producing
the set in her U.K. studio, and recording with
frequent collaborators Matt Chamberlain (drums) and
Jon Evans (bass). Songs bound for the disc include
"Sweet the Sting," "Sleeps With Butterflies" and
"'The Beekeeper' is musically inspired by the fact
that the piano has realized that she has an organ,"
Amos says. "With my right hand on her organ and my
left hand on her piano keys, I have been changed by
the relationship between these two beautiful
creatures, the Bosendorfer piano and the B3 Hammond
Meanwhile, "Tori Amos: Piece by Piece" is being
co-written with journalist Ann Powers and will be
published Feb. 8 by Broadway Books, a division of
Random House. It is said to be an intimate look at
Amos' private and performing life.
In late 2002, Amos released "Scarlet's Walk," her
first album for Epic after more than a decade as a
solo artist with Atlantic. The set debuted at No. 7 on
The Billboard 200 and has sold 577,000 copies in the
United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
In May, Epic released the Amos concert DVD "Welcome to
Sunny Florida," which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's
Top Music Video chart and has sold 41,000 copies.
