Tori Amos / Gold DustTori Amos releases a new album featuring orchestral reworkings of previously released songs on 1 October 2012. Gold Dust will be her thirteenth studio album and was recorded with the Metropole Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley.

The album will be released on Deutsche Grammophon, following last year’s classically influenced Night of Hunters.

The tracks on Gold Dust span her entire career, and include Silent All These Years, Precious Things and Winter from debut Little Earthquakes, as well as lesser known tracks such as Snow Cherries from France which featured on the 2003 hits compilation Tales of a Librarian.

    I love the idea of re-recoding previous songs. It’s much better then just doing a “Best Of” of the already released material. Also many artist have grown over the course of time and see and feel their songs differently now.
