The theme song for Showtime’s new show The Affair is written and performed by Fiona Apple. The song is called “Container” and was produced by frequent collaborator and tourmate Blake Mills. (Incidentally, Apple joined him last night for a few songs at Mills’ show in NYC.) In a statement, show creator and executive producer Sarah Treem said, “Fiona Apple has been my favorite songwriter since I was sixteen. I am honored and humbled that she has chosen to lend her talent to our opening title sequence. If our show can approach one tenth of the depth and complexity of her song, I’ll be very happy.” Watch below.
The Affair premieres 10/12 on Showtime and stars Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Maura Tierney, and Joshua Jackson.
