No, this isn’t some April Fools’ trickery: Fiona Apple is releasing her new album in just over two weeks.
No fooling. Fetch the Bolt Cutters #fionaapple #fetchtheboltcutters @fionaappleig @davidgarzamusic @amyaileenwood #sebastiansteinberg @tchadblake @quincyblaque @dwaved @slaterhouse5 @thedonniestheamys
The video, which shows a dog running on the beach, is soundtracked to some delightfully chaotic percussion—a blip of a new track, maybe?
This news arrives after Apple posted a video (also shared to Zelda’s socials) teasing an early release of the record, which wasn’t supposed to arrive until later in the year. “Should I release it?” she asked. “Like soon? Like really soon? I think I’m gonna.” She’s a woman of her word. The world may be crashing down around us, but at least we’ll have new Fiona Apple songs in a matter of weeks.
Fetch the Bolt Cutters will follow 2012’s The Idler Wheel…, which was her first album after a seven-year gap. Last year, attention was on Apple again when her song “Criminal” appeared in the film Hustlers.
