It's been seven years(!) since Fiona Apple's great 2005 album, Extraordinary Machine was released, but according to her label head L.A. Reid, her new album is due out in "the next few weeks." Apple has had new music rumored for a couple years, and she even told an audience late last year that her album had been, "done for a fucking year." But apparently the label struggles are about to be done.
This follows the couple year struggle for Apple to release Machine, as it was completed back in 2003, before it was released after pressure from her fans on her label to release it in 2005. Consider this a late addition to our most anticipated albums of 2012 list.
