[New Releases] Tori Amos
“Hunters” is Amos’ first release on the Berlin-based classical record label Deutsche Grammophon, and there are clear classical, even operatic influences. It’s a beautifully composed album that highlights Amos’ classical training and her fierce intensity as a musician and songwriter. But long gone are the pointedly poignant - and accessible - lyrics of her earlier work.
Amos has said the album uses to the structure of a classical song cycle to tell the story of one life-changing night in the life of a woman who’s at the end of a relationship. The album allows the listener to “follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter,” Amos says.
