Fiona Apple unleashes the second single from her hotly anticipated fourth album.
Emerging from her seven year hiatus with a new album, the lengthy yet appropriately titled The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do, grammy-winning vocalist/pianist Fiona Apple has chosen today to release her second offering from the project, the darkly thematic “Werewolf.”
Apple’s nostalgic vocals dominate the sparse piano track, which finds her, rather maturely, reevaluating a lost love.
“But we can still support each other, all we gotta do’s avoid each other,” she sings, after likening her lover to a werewolf, only before responsibly admitting to providing a full moon for him to feast under. This glimpse of her fourth LP, along with the new tracks she’s been debuting on tour, promisingly hint at one of her best releases to date.
