Since the release of her first, career-defining solo album Little Earthquakes, Tori Amos has been one of the music industry’s most enduring and ingenious artists. From her unnerving depiction of sexual assault in Me and a Gun to her post-9/11 album Scarlet’s Walk to her latest album Native Invader, her work has never shied away from intermingling the personal with the political. In conversation with Erica Wagner, Tori examines what was happening in her life when she wrote the lyrics that connected with millions of fans, and looks at them through the lens of the political and social landscape of 2020; how they stand as words of activism, words of resistance.
