TORI AMOS HITS WITH TWO NEW EPS:
"PROFESSIONAL WIDOW" IS #1 ON BILLOARD HOT DANCE CHART,
"HEY JUPITER" SLATED FOR AUGUST 21ST;
ABC-TV "PRIMETIME LIVE" STORY TO AIR JULY 31ST
Atlantic recording artist Tori Amos continues her musical evolution with the commercial release of two strikingly differing EPs this summer: one featuring dance remixes of "Professional Widow," and the other entitled "HEY JUPITER," featuring a new version of the title song plus four live tracks recorded earlier this year on Tori's ongoing, SRO "Dew Drop Inn" world tour. The original versions of both "Professional Widow" and "Hey Jupiter" can be found on "BOYS FOR PELE," Tori's current RIAA gold album.
In its first week of release, the "PROFESSIONAL WIDOW" CD5 was the "Hot Shot Debut" at #15 on Billboard's "Maxi-Singles Sales" chart, and it has now soared to #1 on this week's Billboard "Club Play" chart. "PROFESSIONAL WIDOW" includes six different remixes of the track by producers Armand Van Helden (Ace Of Base, Gloria Estefan) and MK (Jodeci, Celine Dion, Nightcrawlers), along with the original album version.
On August 21st, Atlantic will release Tori's "HEY JUPITER" EP, including the newly recorded "Dakota Version" of the title track, plus four live tracks: "Professional Widow," Tori originals "Sugar" and "Honey," and her interpretation of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," which has been garnering ovations throughout the current tour.
Ms. Amos is slated for a feature story on ABC-TV's Primetime Live, scheduled to air on July 31st. In addition, her recent MTV Unplugged performance is being re-run throughout the month of July.
In other Tori news, she will appear on the debut transmission of "Pepsi Live @ Ticketmaster Online," a twice-monthly celebrity chat sponsored by the two companies. Tori will appear on August 1st from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. (E.T.); the event will be linked to the Atlantic Records Worldwide Website (http://www.atlantic-records.com/).
"BOYS FOR PELE," Tori's third solo album, was released in January and debuted at #2 on the national album chart. In addition to the "PROFESSIONAL WIDOW" and "HEY JUPITER" EPs, the album previously yielded commercial EPs for two other album tracks, "Caught A Lite Sneeze" and "Talula," both of which included previously unreleased Tori songs.
