The undeniably talented and slightly unpredictable Fiona Apple has announced that she will embark on a short, collaborative tour with musician Blake Mills this fall.
Anything We Want: An Evening with Fiona Apple & Blake Mills will see both musicians taking their collaborative efforts on a 13-date tour across North America this October. Though very few details have been revealed, a press release stated that both artists would perform songs from their respective catalogues along with other unreleased original material.
Mills worked with Apple on her acclaimed 2012 album, The Idler Wheel
, and traveled with the Grammy-winner during her subsequent tour both as opening act and guitarist in Apple’s backing band.
When asked to give information on their upcoming joint venture for the press release, the two musicians had a bit of fun:
1) We were sent an assignment to write three or four sentences.
2) These sentences should communicate that we, Fiona Apple & Blake Mills (that’s us), are doing a little tour as a duo.
3) We know it’ll be something special, and we aren’t being coy here — it’s just that we have about 26% of an idea of what the fuck we will be playing for you.
4) It was our understanding that the 4th sentence was optional, but here is something that is true: the uncertainty excites us.
Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, Aug. 2 at 10 a.m., presumably from this website. Check out the tour dates below.
