Fiona Apple makes a comeback

Well, there is is, the cover of the new album of singer/songwriter Fiona Apple. Fiona's fondness for extremely long album titles returns with this, her 4th album. It has been 7 years since her last release Extraordinary Machine. A couple of years ago there were many reports of her fights with her record company and even a movement to get her new work released. Whatever the bumps in the road, she has finally managed to get new work out this summer. The new album will be released June 19th. She had a headlining spot at this years SXSW festival and received very positive reviews of new tracks as well as her gutsy performance. Fiona has now also announced plans for a Summer tour(see dates below). I have enjoyed much of Fiona Apples music and even seen her in concert a couple of times(remember Lilith Fair?) but overall I'm not a rabid fan as some. I'm sure I will like the album as well as be surprised at how much I enjoy it. I'm still on the fence on whether to see her live. Although I have heard that her new live shows are quite impressive. Check out one performance of a new tune at SXSW.
