Tori Amos’s latest effort, Strange Little Girls, will debut at Number Four on the forthcoming Billboard 200 album chart. The album has sold more than 110,000 copies in its first week of release.
Strange Little Girls features Amos’s interpretations of Neil Young’s “Heart Of Gold,” Tom Waits’ “Time,” Eminem’s “’97 Bonnie & Clyde,” Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The Silence,” and Slayer’s “Raining Blood,” among others.
All 13 songs are taken from the viewpoint of different women, as Amos told LAUNCH. “You wake up every day and you choose what you have in your life, your books, the things that you think are defining where you are as a person. The friends in your life, how you present yourself, what matters to you. Little did I know in the beginning that there would be these 13 women that would say, ‘Well, identity is something that you’re going to look at in a way you’ve never looked at before.”
Amos begins a tour Friday night (September 28) in West Palm Beach, Florida.
