After a six-plus year hiatus, singer-songwriter Fiona Apple will finally be releasing new music in the coming weeks.
Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid posted to Twitter on Sunday (Jan. 22), letting his 297,000 followers know that new music from the critically acclaimed "Tidal" star was coming soon.
"Lot's of good music coming from @Epic_Records in the next few weeks. Stay tuned music fans. Welcome back Fiona! #BeEpic," he wrote, later tweeting "YES Fiona Apple!" to clarify.

Apple's follow-up to 2005's "Extraordinary Machine" has been near release for more than a year, with release originally expected for spring 2011. At a November concert in Los Angeles, Apple reportedly told the crowd that she couldn't remember how to play any of her new songs because "they've been done for a fucking year."
In late 2010, Drummer Charley Drayton told Modern Drummer magazine that he's been co-producing Apple's fourth studio album.
