Tori Amos re-imagines a personally handpicked collection of songs spanning her entire catalogue with her thirteenth studio album, Gold Dust.   Produced by Amos with arrangements by long-time collaborator John Phlip Shenale, the new album features reworkings of songs in orchestral settings which Amos recorded with the renowned Metropole Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley. Slated for release October 2, 2012, Gold Dust is Amos’ second recording for Deutsche Grammophon and a natural progression following 2011’s classically influenced Night of Hunters.
What better way to commemorate the 20-year career of an artist who has sold over 12 million albums, played over a thousand shows, won numerous awards and, more importantly, touched, healed or changed the lives of millions of fans than with a new album paying tribute to her past?   “The 20 years is about celebrating different times that have happened — all the blessings, all the conversations which have taken place and inspired these songs. This is a collection of new studio recordings of where they are now and who they have become” comments Amos.
