Capitol Records will release Hiding Place on September 14. The passion project follows Tori’s 2015 albumUnbreakable Smile, which Idolatorrecently hailed as “one of the better debut albums in recent memory.” It entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 and contained the Gold-certified singles “Nobody Love,” “Should’ve Been Us” and “Hollow.”
