Tori Amos’ 14th studio album Unrepentant Geraldines was released May 13th on Mercury Classics/Universal Music Classics, and makes its notable debut this week at #7 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart. Unrepentant Geraldines is Amos’ eighth album to debut in the Billboard Top 10, and also marks her return to a pop/rock inspired record in content after a series of more classically influenced projects. Unrepentant Geraldines is being embraced around the world, with additional high album chart debuts in the UK (#13), the Netherlands (#10) and Germany (#15). The record also hit iTunes Top 10 overall charts in over 20 markets including the U.S. Canada, Italy, Poland, Netherlands and Austria.
Upon album release, Amos’ iconic status was reaffirmed with exuberant notices in The New York Times, US Weekly, Time, NPR, The Fader, Refinery 29, Paste, Spin and more, as well as recent TV appearances including the Katie (Couric) show and VH-1’s Big Morning Buzz. The platinum-selling legacy of this groundbreaking artist will also be documented on an upcoming CBS Sunday Morning profile (check local listings).
Fans can experience music from Unrepentant Geraldines alongside highlights from her storied catalogue live in concert over the next several months. Tori recently launched her worldwide, 80-city tour this month, and will grace North American stages beginning July 16th.
