Listen: Tori Amos’ new song “16 Shades of Blue”

on May 06, 2014, 1:55pm

Tori Amos is set to release her 14th studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines on May 13th via Mercury Classics. After a brief foray in classical-inspired music (e.g., 2012’s Gold Dust and writing a musical for London National Theater), Unrepentant Geraldines marks a return to form of “thoughtful contemporary pop”.

The first preview of the upcoming effort, “Trouble’s Lament” was an ornate gem of folk-pop while her latest single, “16 Shades of Blue” is darker, with dramatic drum machine taps and pianos. Amos’ pleading voice is calming as she gives vivid lyrical portraits amidst the dashes of electronic noise and brooding strings. Listen to the song over at NPR.
