Tori Amos' new single, 'Carry' was released on August 18th 2011, and is the first single to be taken from the singer songwriter's upcoming twelfth studio album, 'Night of Hunters'. Her album will be released on September 20th through the German classical label Deutsche Grammophon, making it Amos' first album to be released through a classical music label.
The video for 'Carry' is beautifully simple; it intersperses shots of stunning countryside scenery with shots of Tori performing the warm sounding song in a studio, singing to the camera.
Tori Amos has enjoyed a successful career, with over 12 million albums sold worldwide. She has also been nominated for 8 Grammy nominations. Her music career first started in the eighties, when she fronted a band called 'Y Kant Tori Read' in 1986; however, they were commercially unsuccessful and split up shortly afterwards.
Amos is perhaps well known for using a piano as her instrument of choice; she is also prominent for her dedicated fan base and her critically successful live shows.
Amos will be playing a series of dates in the UK in November, which are as follows:
Nov 2 London, Royal Albert Hall
Nov 3 London, Hammersmith Apollo
Nov 4 Manchester, Apollo
Nov 6 Glasgow, Royal Concert Hall
Nov 8 Belfast, Waterfront
Nov 9 Dublin, Grand Canal Theatre
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
