Three years since her last release, nineties alternative darling Tori Amos is back with an unlikely new album depending on who you ask. While it may seem odd to those who’ve followed the singer songwriter’s career, her just announced E.P. Christmastide is due in early December. While her lead single “Better Angels” doesn’t reference the holiday, it falls between the topic and her well honed sound.
The grand tone of the song is in line with what we know of Amos’ music. The piano as the lead with a jangled guitar underneath, her vocals ring out with their whimsical and joyous tone. Her voice sounds as on point here as it ever has, delivering her harmonic sound while offering her poignant lyrics to not let us forget her prowess.
The lyric video can be viewed above. The song is ready to stream on all platforms. Christmastide can be preordered directly from Decca Records ahead of its December 01 release date.
