Tori Amos’s new video, “Carry,” premiered today on her Facebook page.

In the video, footage of Amos singing and playing piano are separated by different shots like gorgeous views of the Irish countryside, a cemetery, a church and hauntingly beautiful images of a roaring fire. As she plays, Amos performs with grace and quiet passion.

The video is the first off her all-acoustic album, “Night of Hunters,” which will be released September 20. Amos’s representatives described the new CD:

On Night of Hunters, the iconic, platinum-selling singer-songwriter continues her legacy of groundbreaking recordings. The album is a 21st century song cycle that finds Tori drawing on themes from Satie, Granados, Chopin and other great composers. It tells a modern love story that is only unraveled after a journey to Ireland’s mythic past. The album is an all-acoustic work. Guests include such esteemed players as The Apollon Musagete Quartet and the Berlin Philharmonic clarinet soloist Andreas Ottensamer.

To see the video, fans can “like” her Facebook page. They can also share the video to unlock another song off her new record, “Shattering Sea,” which a fan uploaded on YouTube.
