Tori Amos, who continues to insist that she is not pregnant despite the fact that she is obviously pregnant, will be releasing her very first holiday album this year. Says Billboard:
The holidays are shaping up to be rather bright for Tori Amos fans, as the singer-songwriter is set to release “Midwinter Graces,” her first collection of holiday music. Due November 10 on Universal Republic, the twelve song set features holiday standards such as “What Child, Nowell” and “Star of Wonder,” as well as original compositions such as “Pink and Glitter” and “Our New Year.” Amos recruited longtime collaborators Matt Chamberlain on drums, Jon Evans on bass, Mac Aladdin on guitars and arranger John Philip Shenale.
I just think this paragraph is funny, because, like, wait, isn’t “Pink and Glitter” a traditional holiday standard? I remember caroling to that song as a child. There was a line in there about dildos roasting on an open fire and Jack Nicholson nipping at your clitoris. And we’d all have to slither around the front porches and occasionally spread our legs as we sang it. It was one of my faves.
Sheesh. The full track listing is below.
“What Child, Nowell”
“Star of Wonder”
“A Silent Night With You”
“Candle: Coventry Carol”
“Holy, Ivy, and Rose”
“Harps of Gold”
“Pink and Glitter”
“Our New Year”
The photos here we taken at Tori’s concert in Amsterdam on September 17. I have no idea why she maintains she’s not pregnant. Maybe because she lost a baby once and she’s concerned it’s going to happen again? Or maybe in her Tori mind she’s not “pregnant,” she’s just “hosting a life form in her body.” I don’t know. Anyway, congrats on everything, Tori. I love you and I can’t wait for your holiday album.
