Fiona Apple announces U.S. summer tour

April 9, 2012 |  4:00 pm


Fiona Apple's return to the spotlight just got kicked into overdrive as the notoriously reclusive singer-songwriter announced plans for a summer tour.

After nearly seven years of silence, she is releasing her exhaustively titled fourth album, "The Idler Wheel is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do" on June 19, the same day her 27-date trek is set to kick off in Ithaca, N.Y. Apple’s tour concludes July 29 at the Hollywood Palladium.

 "The Idler Wheel …” is Apple's long-awaited follow-up to "Extraordinary Machine," which was released in 2005. The new album's first single, "Every Single Night," is expected to be released April 24.

Tickets for the L.A. date go on sale April 27 with more information available on the singer’s website.
