Tori Amos, who has been making great music nonstop for over two decades, is back with a new video for “Trouble’s Lament” from her 14th album Unrepentant Geraldines. Set in a diner, the video features Amos and other characters interacting with each other and experiencing occasionally awkward moments.  The song brilliantly flows through the video, adding a hint of bluesy eeriness to go along.  To celebrate the release of Unrepentant Geraldines, Amos has begun an 80-date international tour, and is making a stop in Philadelphia on August 10th at the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall.  Information for the performance can be found here; check out the new video below.
