    What exactly is a Cloud Rider?

    I tried to look it up and found this definition, which I'm thinking isn't what Tori is taking about...

    "A black woman who chooses to only, or most often, sleep with white men."

    Cloud Riders are the friends of the "Invisible Boy" on Unrepentant Geraldines who are able to "Unlock the sky"... Tori also tells the Star Whisperer in Night of Hunters to send for his/her Cloud Riders to come...

    So basically no one knows. Tori speak I guess.

    omg
    Sounds more like it could be a god metaphor?

    Eta: Beelust's explanation makes more sense. Tori should turn all this stuff into a children's book.

    I'm hoping we get to hear Cloud Riders before the release date. I want it now!

    I hope it is more Star Whisperer, less Invisible Boy. I don't care for Invisible Boy at all.

    I thought Cloud Riders was the motorcycle group Mark belongs to.

    So if those three are the singles, it means that the second single is a song with Tash AGAIN.

    I'm obviously exited to hear Cloud Riders but I must admit it's a bit strange for the first song released from a new album to be titled after a character(s) that was part of a confined narrative on NOH and then winked at on UG. They must be very important to Tori. I'm at least hoping it's a newly written song she felt she had to write and not a hold over from NOH ( like Forest of Glass) or UG. I've always assumed that IB was written closely to NOH because it seemed she had them in her head still. Maybe be she can't get them out?

    Part of me thinks it's more likely that they were supposed to have their own song on NOH , setting up their occurrence in SW but possibly the song didn't work sonically for NOH ( guitars) or wasn't inspired by a classical piece?

    ^ there are Cloud Riders in SW? What song? edit: Nevermind - SW = Star Whisperer lol

    I don't think FOG or IB was supposed to be on NOH. Tori just likes to bring up similar ideas sometimes to connect the songs... IMO.

    This brings up something I always wonder. Who decides what the singles for an album are? I assume for an artist with Tori's stature she has some, If not all, say in the matter. But is there a record exec or marketing team behind her helping her make the decision?

    Anyone have any thoughts or insight into this?

    I kinda want a "making of Native Invader" video or two like what happened with UG - - - where they play some song teasers in the background. Just to make us salivate...

    I have no special insight, but I've definitely read that the record company often decide on singles, though I'm sure it depends on the artists clout and the nature of their record deal.
