From Yessaid: "A friend in media has heard the album and wanted to share some details anonymously:

- "Promise" is "kind of an R&B duet with Tash. No kidding."

- The album is even more Americana than Scarlet.

- "Oysters" is one of the most beautiful piano-vocal songs she's ever done. People will lose their minds over how gorgeous it is."

more about the album from the same reliable source:

The Tash song is bizarre and so is "Giant Rolling Pin." Both should have been b-sides or something. They don't belong on an album.

"Wild Way," "Wedding Day," and "Weatherman" (three W's in a row!) are all fantastic. "Wild Way" is very sparse - "I hate you, I hate you" Tori repeats in a really tender voice, seemingly from the voice of a Native American woman to a pilgrim. Has a Venus-esque drum loop midway. "Wedding Day" is akin to "Carbon" in a lot of ways. Some Wurlitzer and piano and steady drums. "Weatherman" is, if I remember correctly, mostly just piano and vocal.

"Invisible Boy" is very tender a "Merman" and "Toast" hybrid. Tori chokes back tears at the end.

The piano on the piano-vocal songs is INCREDIBLE.

"Geraldines" is very weirdly structured. Lots of organ and layered vocals and then a weird super fast punk guitar and drum moment. This alternates for most of the song. Then the end has a piano solo that's really dark and lovely and then it breaks into a second part that's just Tori and vocal. She repeats "if you see the vicar's wife" over and over.

"Selkie" is also piano-vocal. All the piano is very satisfying. Nothing is dark, though.

This is an album that alternates between very very vibrant and very very melancholy.

your welcome


Speculation from 'an insider at yessaid.com'. I cannot wait to compare this with the album, and see how in/accurate it is. Also - GUITARS! ELECTRIC GUITARS!
