Tori Amos – “Trouble’s Lament”

By Sam Behrens / March 28, 2014 - 2:28 pm

It’s been five years since the last “real” Tori Amos album, Abnormally Attracted To Sin, but the singer/pianist is officially back. “Trouble’s Lament” is exactly what we want from Tori: quietly mobile piano and simple guitar figures; a sucrose sound that hints at something more sour. The lyrics tell a story about how trouble seems to always find its way to new places: “Trouble got evicted/ from the Devil’s lair…Now the flames from Satan’s tongue are charged/ and licking at her heels.” Listen to the new track and check out her tour dates below.

Tori’s new album Unrepentant Gates is out 5/13 via Mercury Classics.
