Oscar's Theme

Tori's tenth solo album, Abnormally Attracted to Sin, was released on May 19, 2009, by Universal Republic Records, and debuted at number 9 on Billboard's Top Album Sales chart. Abnormally Attracted to Sin was recorded in 2008 at Martian Engineering in Cornwall, England, with Matt Chamberlain on drums, Jon Evans on bass and Mac Aladdin on guitar. The deluxe edition includes The Road Chronicles DVD, featuring 16 "visualettes" filmed by Christian Lamb in 2007 and 2008.

Tori Amos said, "There are 16 visualettes -- each song except 'Mary Jane.' They're little movies that were made. They're not lip-synching, so they're not really videos. I worked with a filmmaker, Christian Lamb, and he was filming the live show in San Francisco, and he jumped on the bus to just get montage stuff for the live concert footage, and he would show me every day what he was filming, of the crew and the earth and of course I was there too, sometimes. And I would look at these stories he was putting together, and I would say, 'Christian, shut the music off,' and it would be the music from the live shows. I said, 'Stop, turn it off, and let's just watch it.' And new music, there was a different story to be told. So I started writing furiously to some of the things that I was seeing, our real lives that were happening and all the things everybody experienced as we travelled the world, and the world was changing so quickly, and is changing so quickly. And then I started writing a lot this summer, and then we filmed again, after the songs were created." [KGSR - March 20, 2009]
