EYE CANDY: Fiona Apple *Interview*
The Queen is back!
Here’s a little clip of Fiona going on about the importance of music and writing in her childhood and how playing live is an almost euphoric experience. Just ’cause, you know, everyone can always use a little bit of Fiona Apple in their lives. She’s all over the place, but I could listen to this woman talk for days, with her engaging rambling and all (even the leopard print gloves); her excitement and intensity is incredibly endearing. She’s still got a little crazy in her, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
“[Playing live] is somewhere in-between conversation and sex. There’s some kind of knowing of each other, some intimacy, some involvement, some braiding together of people. [...] There’s some kind of interlocking with people that just doesn’t seem to happen any other way quite as grandly and totally.”
After Apple fell off the radar following her return to music with 2005′s Extraordinary Machine (has it really been so long?), so it’s nice to see she’s still alive and kickin’. She probably just came out of writing hibernation, because she’s releasing her long overdue 4th studio album come Spring 2011. About time, considering there’s a 5-year-deep Fiona Apple-shaped hole in my music collection.
Plus, I sort miss the angst-ridden, angry girl + piano combo.
You know what they say: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” And I definitely love me some Fiona Apple.
