Fiona Apple Reveals 23-Word Album Title; New Disc Due in June

(Disclaimer: in honor of the title of Fiona Apple's forthcoming album, the paragraphs in this news story will all include exactly 23 words.)

Fiona Apple revealed all 23 words of the title of her long-awaited fourth studio album on Wednesday (Mar. 7). Here's the full title:

"The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do."

The album name isn't the first time Apple has dabbled with impossibly long titles: her sophomore title, "When The Pawn…," included 90 words!

After multiple delays, the follow-up to 2005's "Extaordinary Machine" is believed to be due out in late June on Epic, according to Pitchfork.

Last month, the singer-songwriter announced a six-date March tour that kicks off on Mar. 19, following a performance at SXSW on Mar. 15.
