"All along, I really wanted each song to be its own little world," says Fiona Apple. "Every song that I write, I feel like I'm in a different world."
Apple Fiona astonished listeners with her 1996 debut, "Tidal". It was almost impossible to believe that a voice and a style so fully-formed was coming from a performer who was so young. Spurred by the controversial video for "Criminal" and such hits as the evocative, flawless "Shadowboxer", "Tidal" sold more than three million copies, landed her on the cover of numerous national magazines, and established Apple as a major new figure in pop music.
The 1999 follow-up, "When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks Like a King..." took Apple even further. Produced by Jon Brion (who has worked with artists from
Aimee Mann to
Kanye West), it was even more mature and realized than the debut, adding moods and tones to her unique, finely-wrought style. The platinum-selling "When the Pawn..." topped numerous critics' lists as the best album of the year.

When Fiona Apple finished touring, though, she wasn't immediately compelled to start writing again. "I had little bits and pieces of songs that will lie around forever unless somebody gives me a kick in the ass," she says. "I don't really worry about it when I don't feel creative, because it always happens in seasons. Since I started playing piano, there would always be a year or two when I wouldn't play at all. Or there would be an art season, where it's not about making music but about making art. But when I'm not in it, I'm not in it, and I believe it's just as important to have those spells in your life. Everything contributes to what you produce."

As Fiona Apple wrestled with her material, the next chapter in this saga unfolded when someone leaked the unfinished tracks to radio - after which they wound up on the Internet. "First it felt like somebody took my diary," Apple says. "And then I started thinking, now I'm never going to be able to do this the right way."
All the while, rumors were running rampant about the insidious reasons that this album wasn't being released. Fiona Apple has maintained all along, though, that such responsibility lies squarely with her. "The actual reason it didn't come out is that I wasn't satisfied with the way it was," she says. "I felt really bad because I wasn't really there to captain the ship. I didn't feel capable of doing it. So I left Jon to make all the decisions, and as a result it became more of a Jon Brion record. I still love that version of the album, I'm still proud of it, but I wouldn't have been able to live with myself if I didn't at least try to get to a place where I could make my own decisions about it."
Fiona Apple has gained perspective on just where her music fits into her life. She's seen the passion and loyalty of her fans. From all the twists and turns this phase of her life has taken, she's learned, in the end, something like maturity - at least, her own, free-spirited version. "It all just proves that you can grow up and be a happier person and
make good things," she says. "You don't have to suffer for it all the time. It's not like my inner basket case is absent, it's just that I've lived with it long enough that I can manage it now.
In January of 2019, Apple collaborated with
King Princess on a
version of her 1999 song "I Know".
In December of 2020, Apple was featured on a
cover of the Christmas classic "Silent Night" released by
alongside her Christmas EP If We Make It Through December.
Apple was also featured in the documentary
and soundtrack for Echo in the Canyon with
Jakob Dylan covering
songs by artists such as the Beach Boys and the Byrds. She covered
"Whole of the Moon," a
Waterboys song, for the series finale of Showtime's The Affair.
