Fiona Apple May Have a New Album in 2011

Drummer and co-producer Charley Drayton says to expect Apple's next disc in spring 2011

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.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
