good morning! this past friday the always lovely tori amos gave us more insight to one of her invented characters named clyde who appears on her upcoming album american doll posse

clyde, who draws from persephone, wears her emotional wounds on her sleeve, but remains idealistic. she is looking at the effects of not being a whole person. she is trying to figure out what she believes in and she is dealing with having been disappointed in her life.

each week she’ll be outing each of the characters (building up to the album’s release on may 1st) plus with this first introduction of ‘clyde’ (who actually has her own blog) we were also given a listen to a full track called bouncing off clouds which is one the songs performed by the character of ‘clyde’ – i know it all sounds a bit crazy but that’s ms. amos for ‘ya – and us toriphiles wouldn’t have it any other way! (she’s a total genius) the track is simply gorgeous and i just had to share it for this week’s ‘monday .mp3’ – although there isn’t an .mp3 file there are three flavors of streams below! popbytes over & out for now!

is there a lone lost-and-found

make it easy

make this easy

it’s not as heavy as it seems

wrapped in metal

wrapped in ivy

painted in mint ice cream

we could bouncing off the top of this cloud

bouncing off the top of this cloud

failure to respond worked

i talked but did you listen

bouncing off the top of this cloud

(i’ve put on my silver)

ooh but would you say has it come to this

(i’ve put on my silver)

bouncing off the top of this cloud

well you can stare all day at the sky

but that won’t bring him back

that won’t bring him back

you say you’re waiting on fate

but i think we decide

i think we decide

where we take our lives

make it easy

we could make this easy

easy love

we could make this easy

make this easy

it’s not as heavy as it seems

make this easy

it’s not as heavy as it seems

wrapped in metal

wrapped in ivy

big umbrellas smiling

we could bouncing off the top of this cloud
