talking to Granthshala About the new album last month, Amos was asked about the real fantasy of “Spy,” and whether it took him a long time to be able to complete the song.
“Yeah, I had to work in that direction,” she said. “I’m coming out of a really dark place and being able to deal with bad dreams knowing they are bountiful. [I’m exploring the idea that] From Cornwall to London, as far as Aberdeen and as far as Dublin, there are creatures with good intentions on these islands trying to help and protect those who cannot sleep because of their night terrors.
“It was almost a week when Tash was having all these nightmares, and so I was inspired to write something that would make him laugh.”

Set for release via Decca on October 29, ‘Ocean to Ocean’ is, according to Amos, “a record about your losses, and how you deal with them”.
“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, ” He said.
“I realized that to move it, 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… “
“Ocean to Ocean” is set to tour the UK and Europe next year, with shows scheduled for February and March next year.
