As reported by Billboard.com last September, Fiona Apple's drummer/co-producer Charley Drayton told Modern Drummer magazine that the power-packing singer/songwriter had a new record slated for a spring 2011 release. Fellow singer/songwriter Michelle Branch tweeted soon after that she'd heard several of the new, "amazing" tracks. The folks at Sony Music, Apple's label, are either keeping mum or haven't been part of the conversation. "If she's got a new album, no one here has heard it," a Sony source says. Her management couldn't be reached for comment.
She'll be playing at Pitchfork's SXSW showcase this March
SXSW is right around the corner, and we've got some big news to share regarding our official showcase. It's taking place March 15 at the Central Presbyterian Church, and will feature none other than Fiona Apple. The beloved singer-songwriter hasn't played more than a handful of shows since 2007. We're beyond excited to be hosting this performance in an intimate space that only holds about 400 people.
Fiona will open the showcase at 8 p.m. Only SXSW badges and wristbands will be admitted. Stay tuned for details on the rest of the lineup.
I'm taking this as a good sign... crossing my fingers that she's got something brewing
