"Gold Dust is about celebrating over 20 years of all the conversations that have happened which inspired many of these songs and it's a collection of new recordings of where they are now and who they have become."
"Well, some songs I think work better in a live context than others. They just do... Matty looked at me, the drummer this is, and he said, "I miss the people. I miss the people clapping to the rhythm."
"From in the shadow she calls. And in the shadow she finds a way, finds a way. And in the shadow she crawls, clutching her faded photograph. My image under her thumb. Yes with a message for my heart."
"When you stop putting yourself on the line, and you don't touch your own heart, how do you expect to touch other people?"

Tori and Samuel Adamson's new musical The Light Princess opens at the Lyttleton Theatre, London on Oct 9th
It will be directed by Marianne Elliot who leads an award winning creative team that includes Rae Smith (Design) Paulie Constable (Lighting) Steven Hoggett (Choreography) Martin Lowe (Musical Supervision) and with Vocal Arrangements by Tori and Martin Lowe and Musical arrangements by John Philip Shenale.
The Cast includes Rosalie Craig as Althea and Nick Hendrix as Digby.
THE LIGHT PRINCESS is a dark fairytale about grief, rebellion and the power of love.
Once in opposing kingdoms lived a princess and a prince who had lost their mothers. Althea, unable to cry, became light with grief and floated, and so was locked away. Digby became so heavy-hearted that he could never smile, and so was trained as a warrior.
One day, he declares war. Althea is forced out of hiding and down to ground but, in defiance of her father, she escapes, only to encounter the solemn prince on contested land. Beside a lake the warring heirs begin a passionate and illicit affair. But for Althea to find real love, she must first confront the world.s darkness and face her own deepest fears.
Today I learned of the very sad news that Peter Rauhofer has passed away suddenly.
I will always hold a very special place in my heart for Peter and his remixes of "Flavor".
He truly captured the spirit of the song and helped create a #1 Dance Club Record
I am sending send my love and thoughts to his family and friends at this very sad time.

A NEWLY ARRANGED &
CELEBRATING 20 YEARS AND SPANNING
THE ENTIRE TORI SONGBOOK
FEATURING THE METROPOLE ORCHESTRA
TO BE RELEASED OCTOBER 2012
Tori has re-imagined a personally hand-picked collection of songs spanning her entire catalogue with the thirteenth studio album, Gold Dust. Produced by Tori with arrangements by long-time collaborator John Philip Shenale, the new album features re-workings of songs in orchestral settings, which Tori recorded in the studio with the renowned Metropole Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley.
"My relationship with all of these songs has changed over the years and they have changed my life. So it wasn't just about capturing the past it was about realizing that the songs had a new narrative now - 10 or 20 years later than they did when I originally recorded them," Tori comments.
Tori will also be doing a very limited number of amazing orchestral shows.
Oct 1 -- Rotterdam
Oct 2 -- Brussels
Oct 3 -- London

Tori Amos' New Deutsche Grammophon CD Night of Hunters Makes Billboard History
#1 Classical Crossover, #1 Classical Overall Debut; Top 10 Alternative & Rock Charts
Check out Tori's set list for the first Night of Hunters tour date in Helsinki, Finland. We will also be posting set lists in the Night of Hunters 'Tour' section after each show, so be sure to check them out!
In celebration of the general release of Tori's Limited Edition DVD at major retailers (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, and Borders), we are pleased to announce a slideshow of never-before-seen photos from Tori's special Artists Den concert - and a new video of "Concertina" from the show - available for viewing at www.theartistsden.com/toriamos.
On a cold December night in New York City, Tori Amos played a private solo concert for one hundred fans at the historic Park Avenue Armory, an immense historical landmark built in the late 19th century as both a military facility and a social club. Described as "Greek, Moresque, and Celtic with a dash of the Egyptian, the Persian, and the Japanese," the Armory's ornate Veterans Room provided a fitting setting for Tori's intimate performance.
Tori Amos: Live from the Artists Den captures this once-in-a-lifetime performance featuring both hits and fan favorites spanning Tori's catalogue, from her 1991 debut Little Earthquakes to her 2009 album Abnormally Attracted to Sin - including two songs not shown in the television broadcast.
Tori Amos is a founding member of and has been one of the main spokeswoman for The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE. RAINN also publicizes the hotline's free, confidential services, educates the public about sexual assault, and leads national efforts to improve services to victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.
