It’s been more than six years since Fiona Apple dropped her third album, Extraordinary Machine. And it’s becoming increasingly clear that even she’s unaware of when we’ll hear its follow-up. According to Grand Land, she told her fans during a recent concert in Los Angeles with longtime producer Jon Brion that they have indeed recorded new material.
But when a member of the audience asked if they could hear some of those tracks, she replied, “I can’t remember [how to play] any of my new songs because they’ve been done for a fucking year.” Brion then apparently said, “Not her fault!” Christ. What’s the deal, labels? Weren’t we supposed to hear this album back in the spring? Shit. [The Daily Swarm]
