Fiona Apple

Fiona Apple has been in the game for nearly two decades now, and yet she only has three albums to her name. The last one, the very good Extraordinary Machine, came out way the hell back in 2005. And when she did a surprise show with Jon Brion late last year, Apple said, “I can’t remember any of my new songs because they’ve been done for a fucking year.” That’s fucked up! We obviously need to hear those songs, and soon we apparently will.

As Rolling Stone reports, Epic Records CEO and chairman L.A. Reid Tweeted about her impending return on Sunday: “Lots of good music coming from @Epic_Records in the next few weeks. Stay tuned music fans. Welcome back Fiona!” Let’s hope he wasn’t referring to the single-named ’80s glam-metal babe Fiona.

  1. I feel kinda dumb for this, but reading and then confirming that she has three albums was really bizarre. I know you basically say that in the post, but just to reiterate. That is weird.

  2. The word “soon”, to anyone in the Fiona Apple circle, actually means “3-7 fucking years”. Still really excited though. I can still listen to When The Pawn and feel like it was made a week ago. It never sounds even remotely dated. “Timeless”, if you will.

    • I was actually just listening to When the Pawn last night for the first time in forever, and thinking of how awesome it is, and how great it would be if I went online and found out a new Fiona song had just come out.

      So tonight I obviously need to listen to more Fiona and think harder about new songs. I do this for the world!

  3. ‘I Know’ is a fucking killer song

  4. Don’t forget the rumored album of jazz standards she recorded with Brad Mehldau. That has never been released. And the original version of Extraordinary Machine that was never properly released?

    It’s much worse than 3 albums in 20 years. It’s 3 properly released albums, 2 recorded and then shelved forever.

  5. I so need this to not be internet smoke. Though I’m not all that hopeful when I look under the “You Might Also Like” section under the article and see that Stereogum also reported she was supposed to be releasing an album last April.
