Fiona Apple released her first new song since 2005 today called “Every Single Night”. The music is minimal only becoming enchanted during the chorus with backing vocals coming in behind Fiona’s. With little instrumentation, Fiona’s words are what needs to be payed attention to. Her vocals on the song are like a cabaret singer allowing listeners to hear every blip in her delivery–it makes her more raw, something that she is known for.
The song comes from her latest release, The Idler the Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipper Chords will serve more than Ropes will ever do. It’s lengthy title is reminiscent of her 1999 album When the Pawn… which has a much lengthier title. “Every Single Night”‘s lulluby-esque tone makes it soothing but the punch in the chorus makes you really listen.
