Exclusive Tori Amos Song Available Online

Starting Friday, Tori Amos fans will be able to check out a new tune, called "Merman," exclusively online. The song will not be included on Amos' new album, "from the choirgirl hotel," which arrives in stores May 5.

The track will be made available to those who pre-order Amos' album at Tower Record stores, through a special toll-free number (1-800-648-4844) or via the internet at www.towerrecords.com.

People that pre-order the track will be provided with a code number that will allow them to download the full-length "Merman" track from Amos' recently relaunched website at www.tori.com.

Amos recently wrapped shooting the video for her first single, "Spark," with director James Brown, whose past credits include work for Finley Quaye and the Spice Girls.

As we previously announced (see "Tori Amos Sets Tour Dates"),

Amos will launch a 12-city tour on April 18 at the Chili Pepper in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
