In March, Tori Amos made a pretty perfect return with "Trouble's Lament," the opening salvo from her forthcoming album, Unrepentant Geraldines. And last month in New York, she took over Brooklyn's Rough Trade NYC to unveil more of her 14th long-player, which will be her first non-classical release since 2009's Abnormally Attracted to Sin. Now we can all hear "16 Shades of Blue," an electronically assisted brooder that finds our heroine asking, "Could your heart be slowly ripping into pieces, disconnecting from the circuits of your mind?" Plodding piano and flourishes of strings accompany her coos. Listen to it all here, and revisit our 15 Quick Questions With Tori Amos for kicks.
