Fiona Apple Unveils 23-Word Album Title
Forthcoming record still doesn't have the longest title in her discography

Apple has revealed that her long-delayed fourth album will be titled The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. This incredibly long title would be very weird for pretty much any other artist on the face of the earth, but readers should remember that the singer's second album, generally known as When the Pawn…, was in fact an eight-line poem. It's likely that the singer's audience will take to abbreviating the new album's title as simply The Idler Wheel, since that is easier to remember than a 23-character acronym.

As of yet there is no official release date set for The Idler Wheel, but according to Pitchfork's sources, Epic is planning to have it stores sometime in June. The singer has committed to a number of tour dates in the near future, including a small theater tour later this month and a set at the Governor's Ball festival in New York City in June.

I'm in on release day.

Apparently the album's been done and sitting on a shelf for a year. Can't wait to hear it.

Great news. I thought her last album was better than her 2nd one.

She can do no wrong by me. Just disappointed she's not coming to Phoenix.

Looks like the album was moved up a week to June 19th.

That new one is "okay". I'll just wait and see what the others on the album sound like first before I decide to buy it or not.

Haven't come across anywhere that's streaming the album yet.

Here's another song from the CD though:

Fiona is really all over the place with this new record. It's a difficult listen. I like some of it, but it's a chore to get through......and it's only 42 minutes long.

It'd be nice to just hear some actual songs without all the weird bullshit.
