Every woman plays multiple roles in her life, and when pianist, vocalist, mother, wife Tori Amos releases her new album, American Doll Posse, May 1, she's giving each a divinely-inspired name.
In fact, to make the album, which juxtaposes melodic piano and full-on guitar rock, Amos drew on a few ancient muses: "I went back to the Greek Pantheon," she says, "These feminine personality traits together make the complete woman."
Each archetype-Isabel, Clyde, Pip, Santa, and Tori-represents a different facet of the singer herself, covering her political, emotional, confrontational, sensual, and parental selves, respectively. Here at Tango, we can't get enough of Posse's first single, "Big Wheel"--an ecstatic road trip song (just in time for summer!) which pairs heated lyrics with a jaunty piano melody.
In the meantime, Tango teamed up with Epic Records to bring you the opportunity to win a parcel of prizes: a copy of American Doll Posse, Tori's entire Epic catalog, and a SONY Portable DVD player. Enter the contest and catch the “Big Wheel” video here!
