Fiona Apple has announced that the title of her fourth album will be ‘The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw, And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do’. The title, you may have noticed, is on the lengthy side. Indeed it’s longer than both her debut, ‘Tidal’, and most recent album, 2005’s ‘Extraordinary Machine’, put together.

Though it’s nothing in comparison to 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’.

The album is currently scheduled for release in June.
