Hear New Sound: Fiona Apple's "Werewolf"

The wait is almost over for fans of Fiona Apple who makes her long awaited return June 19th with The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw, And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, the somewhat reclusive singer-songwriter's first LP in 7 years (and just her 4th overall) on Epic Records. AwkwardSound has already marveled at the album's lead single "Every Single Night," a whimsically poetic listen that throws a few complimentary shades of inspiration at like-minded contemporary Joanna Newsom. Now we get The Idler Wheel...'s second preview in the curiously-titled "Werewolf," a song that finds Apple naked behind her piano baring raw emotions as she retrospects back on a past love gone awry from a more accepting point of view. When sitting still with a piano-bled ballad, Apple still manages to bring out the monster in simplicity with "Werewolf." Even the minor keys matter...
