On Monday, Fiona Apple revealed the artwork and tracklisting from her upcoming fourth album, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, due out June 19, 2012. It's been seven years since her last album, Extraordinary Machine (Epic/Clean Slate), and I'm anxious to hear the new music. I've waited seven years, what's a few more months?
She has been playing a few shows, including South by Southwest last month, but alas no West Coast dates have been announced yet. As of now, her only listed show date is June 24 in New York at the Governors Ball Music Festival.
UPDATE 4/9: Fiona has added tour dates for June and July! She's coming to LA July 29, playing The Hollywood Palladium. Tickets go on sale 4/27 at 10am. Woo hoo!
Watch her perform two songs from the new album during recent shows:
