Tori Amos is releasing a deluxe 20th anniversary reissue of her acclaimed third LP, Boys for Pele. The newly remastered album, out November 18th via Rhino, will feature B-sides, rare recordings and four previously unreleased tracks. The set will be available as a two-CD and digital version, along with a two-LP edition of the original album.

Amos' prolific Pele writing sessions resulted in numerous B-sides and discarded songs. The deluxe edition includes 21 bonus tracks, including the previously unreleased "To the Fair Motormaids of Japan," "Talula (M&M Mix)," "In the Springtime of His Voodoo (Rookery Ending)" and "Sucker." Other featured rarities include the "Fire-Eater's Wife/Beauty Queen" demo and live renditions of "Honey," "Sugar" and "Professional Widow."

Amos made her debut as a producer with Boys for Pele, which explores themes of mythology, religion and gender. The album debuted at Number Two on both the U.S. and U.K. charts, spawning popular singles like "Caught a Lite Sneeze," "Hey Jupiter" and the Armand Van Helden remix of "Professional Widow."

Last year, Rhino released deluxe reissues of Amos' first two studio albums, 1992's Little Earthquakes and 1994's Under the Pink.
