Singer-songwriter Tori Amos is releasing a new memoir—Resistance: A Songwriter’s Story of Hope, Change, and Courageon May 5. As she urges at the book’s beginning: “Join me on the path of resistance—of the art that will set us free,” a familiar theme for Amos, who has written songs about 9/11, #MeToo, and the climate crisis. She describes her latest effort as a “mission to recognize the power of the uses and the strongest of our creative impulses so that we may transfer this moment of crisis into a future of promise.”
