Tori Amos – “Promise” (Feat. Her Daughter, Natashya) Video
“Promise,” one of the songs on Tori Amos’ new album Unrepentant Geraldines, is a duet with Amos’ 13-year-old daughter Natashya, who, it turns out, can really sing. She also shows up in the song’s brand-new video, which follows Amos’ video for “Trouble’s Lament” as the second one from the album. There’s not much going on in the video — it’s just two of them singing in a room together and doing the hug-from-behind-sway-together thing — but as a person with a daughter, it’s more than enough to get me feeling pretty emotional. Natashya, it seems, has mastered the staring-intently-into-the-camera thing, and she already appears to be taller than her mom. Also of note: Amos has been getting weird with her setlists on her recent tour, playing songs she hasn’t played in years (including songs from her Richard Marxist pre-Little Earthquakes band Y Kant Tori Read!) and a whole lot of ’80s covers. Below, check out the “Promise” video, as well as video of Amos covering Rihanna’s “We Found Love” during a recent Oakland show, completely turning it into a Tori Amos song.
Unrepentant Geraldines is out now on Mercury Classics.
