“It’s a record about your losses, and how you deal with them”
Tori Amos has announced the details of a new album – see the artwork and release date for ‘Ocean to Ocean’ below.
The new record follows 2017’s ‘Original Invader’, while recently, he released a book, Resistance, which was published by Atria in May last year.
The new record, revealed on 29 October via Decca Records, was inspired by Amos’ time in lockdown in Cornwall.
“This is a record about your losses, and how you deal with them,” she said in a statement. “Thankfully when you’ve lived long enough, you can recognize that you’re not feeling like the mother you want to be, the wife you want to be, the artist you want to be. Huh.
“I realized that for it to move, you have to write from where you are. I was in my own personal hell, so I said to myself, then you write from there – you’ve done it before… “

Of the album’s inspirations, she said: “If you processed things that were upsetting by traveling, that was taken off the table.
“My pattern has been to jump on a plane and go to the States. I will travel just to have new experiences. I had to find a chair instead, and ‘travel’ like I did when I was five – in my head.
“Ocean to Ocean” is set to tour the UK and Europe next year, with shows scheduled for February and March next year.
