Fiona Apple Announces Tour + Track Listing
Tue, 10 Apr 2012 12:48:29
After much conjecture, rumors and leaking of info, we finally have concrete, confirmed details regarding the official return of Fiona Apple!
The wait will be over on June 19, when Clean Slate/Epic Records will release Apple's first album in seven years. The GRAMMY®-winning artist will launch a summer headline tour that evening at the State Theatre in Ithaca, NY. The run, which will include performances at The Governors Ball Music Festival on New York City's Randall's Island (June 24) and Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium (July 13), will conclude at the Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood, CA on July 29.
Like Apple's 1999 record, When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks Like a King..., the new album's title is a poem:
The Idler Wheel is wiser
than the Driver of the Screw
and Whipping Cords will serve you more
than Ropes will ever do.
It's more of a verse than a title, which is quirky and unique, just like Apple.
"Every Single Night," the collection's first single, will be available beginning Tuesday, April 24, on the iTunes Store, where fans will also be able to pre-order the album. The cover for THE IDLER WHEEL... will feature an illustration by Apple.
You can check out Apple performing "Every Single Night" and "Anything We Want," another track from her upcoming album, by going here.
