Fiona Apple has shared footage of herself at work in studio recording new material.
Apple hasn’t released an album since 2012’s acclaimed ‘The Idler Wheel‘, but now it looks like her return is imminent.
The singer songwriter shared a video on her Instagram asking her dog, “Are we recording? Are we doing vocals?… I think we are”. This was soon followed by another clip of her recording ‘sloppy percussion‘.
Last year, Apple released the lullaby ‘I Can’t Wait Wait To Meet You‘ – with words and music written by expecting mother Solangie Jimenez and composer Thomas Cabaniss. This song cames as a part of the ‘Hopes and Dreams: The Lullaby Project’ where the songs are written by expecting and new mothers.
Last year she also teamed up with Garbage’s Shirley Manson for a duet of Lesley Gore’s ‘You Don’t Owe Me’ in LA to attack the President of the Grammys, Neil Portnow saying that women in the industry need to “step up“.
“It just shows you how out of touch he is,” Manson told NME of his comments. “That’s what women are fighting, that’s what we’re up against: the old white patriarchy that thinks that the issue here is that women aren’t ‘stepping up’. I mean go fuck yourself mate. You know what I mean?
“Women’s fingers are bleeding – they’re sitting in their rooms rehearsing, playing their guitars for hours on end and busting their gut around the country trying to get gigs. When someone like that says something so insensitive and stupid and bigoted, it’s really disappointing. I know for a fact that the music industry and community is enraged.”
