Fiona Apple announces big North American tour for June and July; another viral fan letter to be discovered in May

The idler wheel may be wiser than the driver of the screw, but the rotating wheel is definitely FUNNER! In fact it must be the MOST FUNNEST, because Fiona Apple just can’t get enough of that tour/press circuit, announcing via Pitchfork (suddenly her most ardent supporter and promoter…) a full-on North American tour that sweeps across this broken land + Canada during June and July. I think I just heard Feist punch a wall :(

The tour is in support of Apple’s forthcoming album 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, out June 19 and falling way short, title-wise, of 1999’s 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. In between those two albums was 2005’s Extraordinary Machine, which famously scrapped its original Jon Brion production for a completely different sound in the hands of megaproducers Scott Storch, Scott Stapp, Scotch Storp, and Staph Scars. See the tracklisting for The Idler Wheel followed by the tourdates below, and be sure to RSVP on Facebook so Apple and Zuckerberg know you’re coming.
