In 2001 Amos released the covers album ‘Strange Little Girls’, which saw her tackling Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’, Eminem’s ”97 Bonnie and Clyde’ and Depeche Mode’s ‘Enjoy The Silence’ amongst other tracks. Last year she covered Radiohead‘s ‘Creep’ while onstage in New York.

Amos released her last album ‘Unrepentant Geraldines’ in 2014. Speaking about the album cover, which saw Amos with paintbrush in hand, Amos commented: “I’ve always been inspired by visual artists of all mediums because, as with music, art is not a job you can go to and leave from, but it is something that defines who and what you are. Visual artists shake up our brains and force us to look at everything, from objects we don’t normally think twice about to people we might not have cared about.”
