October 5, 2005 12:00 AM ET

Fiona Apple will kick off a three-week U.S. tour beginning November 22nd in Portland, Oregon, in support of her long-delayed third album, Extraordinary Machine.

Released Tuesday, the follow-up to 1999's When the Pawn . . . has ascended to the Number One spot on the iTunes album chart. Apple began recording Machine with producer Jon Brion (Aimee Mann, Kanye West) in 2003, but scrapped most of the sessions. Though eleven songs from the album surfaced online, Apple continued work on the set with producers Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg) and Brian Kehew (Beck, Eels) for the twelve-track final product.

"I've got a bundle of songs of which I am exceedingly proud," Apple told Rolling Stone of Machine.

This will be the singer-songwriter's first tour in more than five years.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
