Gold Dust looks back over Tori Amos' twenty year career and breathes new life into old favourites in a collaborative effort with the Metropole Orchestra and conductor Jules Buckley.

'20 years ago, when Little Earthquakes was released in the states, I was touring alone with just a piano on stage. A passion I remember having was to play these songs one day with an orchestra. I wondered if it could still feel intimate with over 50 people playing on the stage together.

When the Metropole Orchestra called and invited me to bring the song girls and play with them, the first idea that came to my mind was that of a Memory Box and a desire to design a sonic one. So I called up philly (JPS) and we talked about picking songs that we
could tailor specifically for the Metropole.

In rehearsals with the orchestra, I was startled at first because as we began playing songs that I knew quite well structurally, I began to see new pictures in my mind as the sound of the instruments roared through my veins. It was as if the orchestra were revealing to me subtle meanings of my own songs I had not yet discovered. This is when collaboration turns into an intimate back and forth conversation. Alex from DG said, "have you thought of capturing these sonic conversations in a studio properly with these arrangements?"

More songs stepped forward for the studio sessions in Holland. Many of these songs were written out of having conversations with
people at stage doors, standing somewhere having a cup of coffee, when someone comes up to you and tells you their story. And a lot of times I don't ever see them again and yet they have changed my perspective in just a few minutes.

I guess in a way Gold Dust is about celebrating over 20 years of all the conversations that have happened which inspired many of these songs. And it's a collection of new recordings of where they are now and who they have become.'
