When I received an email in my blogging account with the above subject line from Tori Amos’ record label a few days ago, I have to admit that my stomach did a little “loop-de-loop”, and I got a little giddy inside (I’m a fan!).
I first discovered Tori’s music as a teen in the early 90’s when Tori embarked on her solo endeavors. My favorite Tori Amos song to date is “Silent All These Years“.
Over the years, Tori has not only been influential in music, but also has served as a constant representation of female activism as well as a supporter of the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), a toll-free help line in the US connecting callers with their local rape crisis center.
In retrospect, I’m pretty certain, actually that it was a requirement for every 90’s teen girl to be a fan of Tori’s. Now we are grown up and possibly have children. We’re still listening, and Tori is definitely still around making music, influencing a broader audience than just those of us who grew up with her.
I wanted to bring to your attention that Tori has recently released a new album, Unrepentant Geraldines which contains a sweet duet with her own daughter Tash on the song, “Promise”.
Check out the music video here:
I own Unrepentant Geraldines and it really reminds me of kind of a “Tori-Back-to-Basics” sound that I enjoyed so much from her in the 90′s.
So, here is some awesome news! Tori Amos’ record label has offered two give TWO Leapfrog and Lipgloss readers their very own copy of Tori’s new album: Unrepentant Geraldines!
(Wow, I just felt super-cool typing that last sentence, lol!)
