Tori Amos To Explore Sexual Politics On Strange Little Girls

Follow-up to 1999's To Venus and Back scheduled for September 18 release.

Two years after her venture To Venus and Back, Tori Amos will

resurface late this summer with her sixth album, Strange Little


The singer/songwriter recorded the disc in Cornwall, England, with longtime

collaborator Matt Chamberlain and King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew, according to her Atlantic publicist. Girls arrives in stores September 18.

The sexual politics and complexities of modern American culture fuel much of the album's lyrical content. Motherhood also plays a role, as Amos gave birth to her first child, a daughter, last year.

Amos' last effort, To Venus and Back, featured one disc of fresh material and one of songs performed live during 1998.

She will mount a U.S. tour in the fall to support the album.
