Update: You can take a listen to another new Fiona Apple track “Anything We Want” here. The set of songs also includes the previously released “Every Single Night.”
Only two weeks remain until the release of Fiona Apple’s latest album, but you can listen to a second track right now. “Werewolf” follows the release of leading single “Every Single Night;
In an interview with Pitchfork, Apple talked further about “Werewolf” and the screaming sample it features around 2:10. The artist originally recorded the song in her mother’s Harlem apartment with a movie battle scene playing in the background. Unable to use the sound from the movie, she began hunting for a replacement.
“The first morning we were planning to record, I had just gotten out of the shower and I heard all these kids screaming,” Apple told Pitchfork. “ They were jumping with balloons between their legs, trying to make them pop. In the actual song, we had to take out all the balloon pops because they sounded like gunshots. But it was so perfect.”
The Idle Wheeler is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do marks Apple’s first album in seven years. It’s due out on June 19 through Epic Records. You can listen to “Werewolf” at Pitchfork.
