This February Tori Amos will unveil two exciting projects — a new CD entitled The Beekeeper (in stores February 22) and her first book, Tori Amos: Piece by Piece, co-written with journalist Ann Powers.

Currently, Tori is putting the finishing touches on The Beekeeper, which she’s recording and self-producing in her UK studio Martian Engineering. On songs like “Sweet the Sting,” “Sleeps with Butterflies,” and “Ribbons Undone,” Tori incorporates vintage organs, Afro-Cuban drums and Gospel choirs, working once again with longtime partners, drummer Matt Chamberlain and bassist Jon Evans.

“The Beekeeper is musically inspired by the fact that the piano has realized that she has an organ – with my right hand on her organ and my left hand on her piano keys, I have been changed by the relationship between these two beautiful creatures, the Bosendorfer piano and the B3 Hammond organ.”

In the book Tori Amos: Piece by Piece co-penned with writer Ann Powers, the usually private Tori gives a rare inside look into many intimacies of her life as both a private individual and a very public performing musician. The book, published by Broadway Books (a division of Random House), will be released on February 8th. On Thursday, February 24, Tori and Ann will make a special appearance at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.
