Fiona Apple back in Minneapolis in July on U.S. tour
Fiona Apple has announced her first Twin Cities appearance in six years. The notoriously eccentric singer-songwriter, who embodied the struggle of creative instincts vs. major label pressure, has booked a July show at the Orpheum Theatre. And for those who caught her on her last visit in 2006 at Northrup Auditorium and others who just wished they were in attendance, it's likely an opportunity to get to know her all over again.
Apple was a presence at this past March's running of South by Southwest, and now is facing the advent of blog culture that likely would have completely devoured her, a la Lana Del Rey, if she had started her career in '06 instead of '96.
The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, due out June 19, is only her fourth studio album, and her first since 2005's Extraordinary Machine. This title is a poem, and likely the same will be said for Apple's return to the Twin Cities.
