Tori Amos Locks Eyes With America in a 'Wild Way' on 'Conan'

Singer-songwriter's 14th album 'Unrepentant Geraldines' out now via Mercury

Dan Reilly

At 50 years old, Tori Amos shows no signs of losing the intensity that made her a breakout star in the early '90s. We witnessed that back in April when she performed a commanding set at Rough Trade NYC to celebrate the release of her 14th studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines. For more proof, look no further than her rendition of "Wild Way" on last night's episode of Conan. Alone at her piano, Amos glares directly into the camera, repeating the line "I hate you" with such conviction that it almost makes one feel as if she's directly talking to the viewer (sorry for whatever we did, Tori!). It's both delicate and intense, two of the main attributes that have made Amos such a lasting presence in the music world. Watch it above and catch her on tour this summer.
