Although she’s been recording since 1996, it’s a little shocking to learn that Fiona Apple only has three full-length albums under her belt. Next year, that’s all going to change, as Billboard reported recently that she’ll be putting out album number four sometime during the spring. There’s no title or exact release date yet, but I’m sure Apple will have a lot to say given that it’s been five years since her last album, 2005’s Extraordinary Machine. In the meantime, you can tell your older sister (the one who used to have a nose ring and dyed her hair purple and now has two kids and lives in the burbs) that she can entertain herself by checking out Apple’s newest song “So Sleepy,” released earlier this year on the Jon Brion-produced 826LA benefit compilation, Chickens in Love.
