Fiona Apple Elects 23 Word Title For New Album
By Jessica Grabert 4 years ago
Fiona Apple is at it again. Yes, the Grammy winner is set to release some brand new music, but that is not the “at it” I am referring to. Back in 1999 the “Criminal” singer released an album that was effectively an eight line poem with over 400 characters. Known as When the Pawn…, the album held the record for lengthiest album title for a while. Now, Apple is going for length in an album title, again.
On Wednesday, Apple announced the title of her upcoming album, which will be her first release since 2004. According to Pitchfork, Apple’s label, Epic, currently has plans to release the LP this summer and is shooting for June. I’m sure it will all work out, that is if the label can figure out how the hell to get the 23 words to manifest nicely on the record cover. Yes, Apple shot for another mouthful of a title, although this time she is not attempting to break any big records.
Pop Blend will keep you posted when The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do. gets an actual release date. Although the title is more than a little ridiculous, I’m especially a fan of random noun capitalization, so I will give it a pass. Reminds me of the German language. Ich liebe Fiona Apple.
