Fiona Apple had seven years to come up with a title for her fourth LP, and this is the 23-word end result: The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do.
According to Pitchfork, the album is expected to see light in late June via Epic Records. As previously reported, she’ll support the release with her first U.S. tour dates in five years. Check out those dates below.
