Tori Amos NEW 'Abnormally Attracted to Sin' album + "Welcome to England" video

Tori Amos

Tori Amos is set to release her tenth studio album. 'Abnormally Attracted to Sin' will be out on May 19, 2009 via Universal Republic.

The album title is a line from Guys and Dolls, originally spoken by the character Sarah Brown. "Sin," in this case, is not necessarily what you’re thinking of.

“I wanted to really investigate how we’re controlled by the threat of despair,” Amos said. “I wanted to look at power - how we think and how you can reclaim the right to think for yourself, to uncover what you believe in as a spiritual, sexual creature...What I am exploring with this record is power, and giving it away with your thinking. How do we become controlled?”

Tori Amos has also unveiled the video to the song "Welcome to England", the first single off 'Abnormally Attracted to Sin.' This gorgeous miniature film is one of 16 "visualettes" directed by Christian Lamb who filmed Amos and her band during the American Doll Posse tour.

“Christian jumped on the bus and made daily montages of the band’s life on the road, using music from the live shows as a soundtrack to the footage,” Tori said. “When I saw what he had done, the new songs started to come to me.” The visualettes are not videos in the traditional sense - there is no lip-syncing. Amos thinks of them as “silent movies,” citing early movie star Mary Pickford as a reference point.

“AATS is made up of songs I wrote on the road watching Christian’s footage, and the songs I wrote after spending some time in California, which is where I had lived before Little Earthquakes was released,” Amos explained.

Pre-order the album on iTunes - through to May 19th, and you’ll receive a unique password to purchase Tori concert tickets on before they go on sale to the general public. Eary birds will also receive a free download of the bonus track, “It’s a Bitch to Grow Up.”
