The rock chick has announced a shocking decision to the press stating that she is parting ways with her current record company.
While many young musicians are trying very hard to get a contract deal with a major record label, the opposite thing is being done by Tori Amos. The female rocker has made a surprising decision by ending her courtship with her label Epic Records and chosen an independent path for her new LP.
That news was confirmed by Tori's manager, John Witherspoon, who told Billboard.com, "As with many of her contemporaries, Tori is devising new and exciting ways of getting her music to the masses without the boundaries and limitations of the major music companies." John then also reveals some details about the singer's upcoming indie album, saying that it's "A project of new music and visuals which is being started in the summer."
Tori is not the first artist who decided to end her contract with record labels as previously the likes of Radiohead, Madonna and U2 have already done the same thing. Meanwhile, the rock singer's engagement with the record company started in 2002 with the release of "Scarlet's Walk".
Besides preparing a new album, Tori also has other projects that she is working. One of them is writing a musical score for a play titled "The Light Princess" which will be played at the British National Theater. Not only that, she also has another stuff outside of her musical roots, which is making a graphic novel titled "Comic Book Tattoo". The novel is planned to hit the shelves in July.
