Amelia is Laurie Anderson’s subjective narrative piece about the renowned female aviator Amelia Earhart's tragic last flight. Anderson wrote the songs and lyrics, which she performs with her ensemble and the Czech orchestra Filharmonie Brno, conducted by Dennis Russell Davies. “The words used in Amelia are taken from her pilot diaries, the telegrams she wrote to her husband, and my idea of what a woman flying around the world can think of,” Anderson says.

Amelia was originally commissioned by the American Composers Orchestra in 2000 and was performed in various versions. Some of the text was adapted from Amelia Earhart’s pilot’s log.  The album also features vocals by Anohni and Marc Ribot on guitar.
