Tori Amos' America-Themed Scarlet's Walk Due Oct. 15
July 8, 2002, 11:30 am PT
Native American history, pornography, Oliver Stone, and Andrew Jackson are just some of the subject matter on Tori Amos' forthcoming America-themed new album, Scarlet's Walk, according to a spokesperson for the singer.
As for the album's namesake, Scarlet "may be the land and may be a person and may be a trail of blood" and is the personification of everyone's search for answers, as the story of the album goes. The album's musical and lyrical journey was inspired by the tragic events of Sept. 11 -- the album was written entirely after the attacks on America while Amos was on the road.
Scarlet's Walk -- Amos' ninth -- is set for an Oct. 15 release date on Epic Records in the U.S. (Oct. 14 internationally) and was produced by the often-eccentric singer-songwriter-pianist in Cornwall, England. Drummer Matt Chamberlain and bassist Jon Evans once again appear on the album, which is Amos' first release under her new deal with the Sony label. (She had previously recorded for Atlantic Records, with her last album being 2001's covers album Strange Little Girls.)
The first single, "A Sorta Fairytale," will hit radio Aug. 27, while Amos will kick off a headline U.S. tour this fall with an international trek to follow.
