Tori's Personal Album Of Renewal On Double LP!
With Deep Roots In Her Earliest Songwriting!
In spite of the various crises that have occurred since 2017's Native Invader, Tori Amos has emerged with Ocean to Ocean, her most personal work in years - an album bursting with warmth and connection, with deep roots in her earliest songwriting. Written during the third lockdown in Cornwall, England, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ocean to Ocean is a universal story of going to rock bottom and renewing yourself all over again.
Despite the bittersweet emotions and the still-lingering uncertainty at the time of release, Ocean to Ocean comforts like a warm hug, benefitting from a sumptuous depth of layered production that is at once soulful and satisfying. From the outset, a familiar team - husband/guitarist Mark Hawley, daughter/backing vocalist Tash, drummer Matt Chamberlain, bassist Jon Evans, and orchestral maestro John Philip Shenale - joins Amos as she whips up a storm of sound and emotion with her trademark piano and vocal sorcery.... Like Native Invader before it, Ocean to Ocean is a late-era standout for Amos, who reaches through the dark cloud of collective grief to be that supportive presence for listeners, healing with familiar touches and a timely message.
For nearly three decades, Tori Amos has been one of pop's most compelling personalities, combining a keen knowledge of musical composition with southern Gothic overtones, otherworldly poetics, and a sharp wit. On her 16th album, Ocean to Ocean, she continues to alchemize those qualities into an alloy like no other.
Tori Amos captures the magic of what made her great thirty years ago, while offering new perspectives and approaches, reaffirming her as one of music's most inventive, thought-provoking artists.
