Fiona’s new album & Sufjan’s RSD 7″ with Rosie Thomas
Fiona Apple has a new album that’s about to pop (late June 2012 on Epic) - The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw, And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. Here it is written out, presumably in her own pen, from her FB page…
So, hunch… we’ll just call it The Idler Wheel…
or… The Screw And Whipping…? ;)
Much like When the Pawn being adopted for the much longer named 2nd album - When the pawn hits the conflicts he thinks like a king what he knows throws the blows when he goes to the fight and he’ll win the whole thing ‘fore he enters the ring there’s no body to batter when your mind is your might so when you go solo, you hold your own hand and remember that depth is the greatest of heights and if you know where you stand, then you know where to land and if you fall it won’t matter, cause you’ll know that you’re right.
Some more new music news… Sufjan Stevens and Rosie Thomas are putting out a collaborative 7″ vinyl single for Record Store Day 2012 (4/21/12). The A-side of the single is a re-imagined version of “Where Were You?,” a song from Thomas’s album With Love. On the B-side, Sufjan offers up an answer song called “Here I Am!” Sufjan recorded and mixed both tracks, and both artists show up on both songs.
The new version of “Where Were You?” is streaming below:
