Tori Amos speaks with Kyle Meredith about her new book, Resistance: A Songwriter’s Story of Hope, Change, and Courage. The second biography for the legendary singer-songwriter dives into her work amidst both collective and personal crises. Amos discusses her responsibility to speak out, how call-to-action songs come to fruition, and how her lyrics can be interpreted differently whether you’re reading or singing them. Amos also talks about having to completely rewrite much of the book after losing her mother last year, and how the pandemic has changed the direction of the album she’s currently working on.
