Tori Amos has just revealed the video for “Promise,” a stirring duet with her 13-year old daughter Tash The Boston Globe called “gorgeously vulnerable.”  The track appears on the critically acclaimed Unrepentant Geraldines, Amos’s 14th studio album, and eighth release to debut in Billboard’s Top 10 at #7, reaffirming her iconic status in a 20 plus-year career.

The video is an artistic take on the emotive ballad, which touches upon the deeply complex communication and relationship between mother and daughter. Amos explains, “It was really fun to create with her, to talk about relationships between mothers and daughters, and she’s really funny. We have a different kind of relation than we did, because she’s at boarding school, and she’s become very independent. I would say the song takes on all of that relationship.”

The Promise” video premiered with Jezebel.

The North American leg of her 80-date international tour continues through the end of August. Fans who are unable to attend a live show can catch Amos performing this weekend on CBS This Morning Saturday (August 2) and profiled on CBS Sunday Morning. She also recently performed album track “Wild Way” live on Conan last Thursday, July 24 and “Trouble’s Lament” on LIVE With Kelly & Michael, July 14.

“ …Tori Amos returns to the world of piano-driven pop with her best album in 20 years.” NPR

“On Unrepentant Geraldines, […] Amos puts herself back at the piano, crafting songs that will speak to the fans she earned back in the 90’s as well as those who were attracted by her later work.” TIME

“Tori Amos made a pretty perfect return…” SPIN

“Her fiercely personal lyrical candor earned her a face among influential ’90s singer-songwriters …it’s her appreciable mysticism and prodigal chops that carried Amos into something like otherworldliness, and, well, the new millennium.” The FADER

“[Unrepentant Geraldines] proves that Tori’s still very much the queen of the twisted alt-piano ballad. Now take this as your cue to bow down and genuflect.” – VICE’s Noisey
