Listen: Tori Amos’ new song “Trouble’s Lament”

on March 28, 2014, 11:43am

Following her recent dabble in classic musicalTori Amos returns to “thoughtful contemporary pop” with her 14th studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines, due out May 13th via Mercury Classics. As our first taste of the 14-track effort, Amos has unveiled “Trouble’s Lament”, a quaint bit of Americana and folk marked by fluttering piano, guitars with a slight honky-tonk tinge, and Amos’ otherworldly harmonies. Don’t be fooled by its simple nature and inherent charm, however; the song sees Amos “personify Trouble into a woman”, one who’s left her lover Satan in search of a new place to lay her head. If that’s not country music to a tee, then I don’t know what is.
