Is a new Fiona Apple album finally on the way? Twenty Four Bit spotted a profile of drummer Charley Drayton in which Drayton says he's working on Apple's next album. In the article, Modern Drummer writes that the album, which Dayton is currently "playing [on], co-producing, and mixing," is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2011.

Apple's last album, 2005's Extraordinary Machine, had to be re-recorded after disputes with Epic Records over its commercial viability. Apple didn't resurface until she released a pair of tracks on a Cy Coleman tribute album last year. In June of this year, Apple and producer Jon Brion collaborated on the song "So Sleepy," which was written by children in the 826LA non-profit organization.

“Fantasy”

Mariah Carey | 1995

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
