There was a small Tori article posted in the Hot Product section of the web site for Billboard Magazine (and likely in an issue of the magazine itself) sometime in September 2001 around the time 'Strange Little Girls" was released. Thanks to Franco Franus for sending this to me.

People Are 'Strange'

It's the kind of concept only Tori Amos could come up with: recording an album comprised completely of cover songs written by men. Enter "Strange Little Girls," due this week from Atlantic and highlighted by Amos' interpretations of Neil Young's "Heart of Gold," Tom Waits' "Time," Boomtown Rats' "I Don't Like Mondays," Eminem's "97' Bonnie & Clyde," and the Beatles "Happiness Is a Warm Gun."

"Words can wound and words can heal," Amos says, "and both are included on the album ... All of these songs were created by powerful wordsmiths, whether you agree with them or not." To reinforce the identity of each of the characters "singing" the songs, photographer Thomas Schenk's pictures of Amos as each woman grace the "Strange Little Girls" CD packaging.

Amos kicks off a North American tour in support of the new set Sept. 28 in West Palm Beach, Fla. The trek, which runs into late November, will find the artist performing without a backing band for the first time on tour since 1994.
