he Screw, and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do"

Apple has revealed that her long-delayed fourth album will be titled The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. This incredibly long title would be very weird for pretty much any other artist on the face of the earth, but readers should remember that the singer's second album, generally known as When the Pawn…, was in fact an eight-line poem. It's likely that the singer's audience will take to abbreviating the new album's title as simply The Idler Wheel, since that is easier to remember than a 23-character acronym.

As of yet there is no official release date set for The Idler Wheel, but according to Pitchfork's sources, Epic is planning to have it stores sometime in June. The singer has committed to a number of tour dates in the near future, including a small theater tour later this month and a set at the Governor's Ball festival in New York City in June.

Snatched tix to see her at the Ryman in July. Pretty steep though, hope the setlists are a little longer on the full-scale tour.

How much were tickets for the shows she did back in March?

I'd like to see her, but $60-80 is a little bit much, especially since I don't know if I can expect more than an hour.

Yeah, I paid 60 each for two of the best available tickets, but after all the Ticketmaster bullshit the tab came to 153 bucks.

I can stomach the cost, even if she turns in a short performance, because I love the Ryman and she tours like twice a decade.

got 2 GA tickets for oakland. i think it was $135 after the fees.

last time i saw her was in austin in 06 and it was really good. quentin tarantino was just offstage, sweatily dancing in a tanktop.

july's pretty far off.

the Denver tickets are screwy. within seconds of them going on sale, the first 30 rows were unavailable, so I got my ticket around row 31.

I thought that seemed strange, so I kept checking back, and random single seats would periodically pop up in rows 15-30. so I snagged one in row 15, but I'm still wondering where those other 150-450 seats went to. do they set those aside for something? I didn't hear about any presale.

Scalper bots, son of a bitch. I managed to get a row 1 Dead Can Dance ticket, but I guess that one isn't quite so in demand.

if so you should get a ticket asap, the venue warned last night that it would probably sell out within the day

y'all read about this -

About a year and a half ago, after she had completed the album she’ll release on June 19 — a collection of stripped-down, percussive songs that’s as passionate, smart and cutting as anything she’s done — Ms. Apple got so angry that she started walking up and down a hill near her home in Venice, Calif. She started to climb that hill for eight hours a day, day after day, until she could barely walk, until she was limping, and then until she could not walk at all. Her knees required months of therapy. “Something about that was a rite of passage,” she said. “I think it’s really healthy to lose things or to give things up for a while, to deprive yourself of certain things. It’s always a good learning experience, because I felt like it really was like, ‘I must learn to walk again.’ I had to walk out all that stuff, and I knew it was stupid, and I kept on walking.”


love this girl. also her song about jonathan ames is pretty killer.
