Fiona Apple, ‘Every Single Night’ – Song Review
It’s been seven long years since singer-songwriter Fiona Apple released new music. Her last album was 2005′s excellent ‘Extraordinary Machine.’ The New York native is now ready to unleash her extra-wordy forthcoming album in June and has just released the first single ‘Every Single Night.’
Like most of the songstress’ material, Apple’s vocals on ‘Every Single Night’ tug at the heart strings. The tinkling instrumentation makes you think you just opened up the saddest music box in the world. Apple seems to struggle against her worst enemy: herself.
“That’s where the pain comes in,” Apple belts with reserved rage. “Like a second skeleton / Trying to fit beneath the skin / I can’t get the feelings in.”
You can’t help but feel sorry for her constant inner-struggle, and wonder how someone so lovely has lived with so much pain all these years. Listen to the track in its entirety below.
‘Every Single Night’ was one of the handful of new songs that the singer performed during SXSW last month. The track is from her fourth studio album, ‘The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do,’ out June 19 via Epic Records.
Fiona Apple will launch a tour in support of ‘The Idler Wheel…’ this summer. The trek will kick off June 16 in Ithaca, N.Y. and will take her all the way through July 29 in Hollywood, Calif.
