Tori Amos Contributes Original Song 'Flicker' to Netflix's Upcoming Documentary AUDRIE & DAISY
by TV News Desk
Eight-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Tori Amos has written and recorded "Flicker" for the Netflix original documentary Audrie & Daisy, which will be released theatrically in New York and Los Angeles and on Netflix September 23. "Flicker" will be available on all major digital platforms on Friday, September 9, 2016.
Directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk's urgent Audrie & Daisy explores what life is really like for today's teens as they navigate a digital Wild West, where one impulsive click on "send" can destroy reputations and end lives within seconds. Following two cases of teenage sexual assault and subsequent social media shaming that made national news, the filmmakers expose the unsettling way the court of public opinion commences with lightning speed on news feeds and text bubbles and within communities.
On "Flicker," Amos asks listeners to "shed a little light on this, and on those who excuse this act of violence."
"After viewing the film, I spoke with Bonni and Jon about the devastating complexities of the stories they capture in Audrie & Daisy," Amos said. "The song was informed by these conversations. I wrote 'Flicker' to hold a sonic space for the heroines of this powerful and timely documentary."
Tori Amos Bio Since the release of her debut Little Earthquakes in 1992, Amos has smashed apart boundaries with her piano rock and raw, confessional poetry.

October 2013 saw the London opening of The Light Princess, a stage musical written by Amos with Samuel Adamson, and developed with the National Theatre.
