Tori played Sleeps with Butterflies, then sat down for the interview.
WOMAN-- Thank you, that was so beautiful.
TORI-- Oh hi.
WOMAN-- Good morning to you, welcome. How are you?
TORI-- I'm really well, thank you.
MAN-- It's been ten years.
TORI-- Yeah i know,I can't believe it.
WOMAN-- Now tell us about The Beekeeper, your eighth album. Tell us about it.
TORI-- Well, I was in Cornwall, England, looking over to that place called America, and it's something where, when you're in Cornwall I think you're able to see things that maybe you're not willing to see when you're in inside the states. And I write a lot about the American experience; my mother's people are Native American, so it's my vortex, it's my place. And yet it's been disturbing, certain things.
MAN-- Tori, you've always kept good relationships with your fans, you have meet & greet sessions at your concerts. That's been important to you, hasn't it?
TORI-- Oh yeah, because that's where it's at. Y'know, it's funny, I was backstage at the Grammy's years ago thinking oh wow, this is going to be like musicians and college-- I never went to college-- so I was thinking it's going to be the greatest party and you're going to hang out with the coolest people. WRONG! They're not, I mean y'know, some of them are great, but the point is you can really lose sight of where the interesting people are. And so I get a sense of the conversation-- how can you have a conversation with an audience if you don't know who they are?
WOMAN-- Absolutely, well we loving having our audience and they're all glued to the window, it was so great to have you. Thank you for joining us.
TORI- Thank you.
WOMAN-- All the best with the new album, and of course the tour and we've got all the details on our website (www.seven.com.au/sunrise) for people that want to come and visit you and have a look at the in-store appearences.
