Tori Amos Signs With Universal Republic
Tori Amos has signed a new deal with Universal Republic, and is eyeing a late spring/early summer 2009 release for her tenth album.

The artist recorded with Atlantic from 1992 to 2001, after which she signed with Epic. That deal, which yielded three studio albums, ended this summer.

As first reported here, Amos' new album will be a blend of music and corresponding visuals shot on HD and Super 8 over the course of the past year. The project "is indicative of the outlier creative and strategic opportunities both Tori and Universal Republic hope to build upon in this extraordinary relationship," says manager John Witherspoon.

Amos is also writing a musical for the British National Theater, "The Light Princess," and in July unveiled a graphic novel, "Comic Book Tattoo," based on her catalog.
