Surprise, Tori Amos has released an absolutely fantastic pop song with her new track, “Up The Creek.”
Amos, famed for her more acoustic or piano led tracks has recently turned to pop to serve as an outlet to her already amazing songwriting.
At the age of 53, you expect an artist to start going the way Amos has been most of her life, releasing less pop orientated song – look at Madonna’s last album, Rebel Heart, hlaf pop, half acoustic!
Well, Amos is doing it backwards and it’s fantastic!
While the song is definitely more pop than her previous hits, it still stays true to Amos with a bloody brilliant piano solo during the bridge of the song – she still has it, people!
The track is very interesting, it’s not in a usual structure, and the constant “Good Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise,” sounds amazing, it actually pays tribute to her grandfather!
In fact, it is a family affair with her daughter offering her voice for guest vocals!
This track gets us excited to see what Amos has to offer with her upcoming album, Native Invader.
