Luckily for us, there’s actual cause for celebration this time around – L.A. Reid said so.
In a tweet, the chairman and CEO of Epic Records shared his enthusiasm for the label’s upcoming projects:
“Lot’s of good music coming from Epic Records in the next few weeks. Stay tuned music fans. Welcome back Fiona!”
Of course, given the singer’s history of
drama-filled staggered album releases, a skeptical Time magazine reporter contacted Epic directly to determine the accuracy of Reid’s “announcement.”
Acknowledging that the tweet was “taken a bit out of context,” a spokeswoman for Epic confirmed that Apple’s fourth studio album is slated for release in 2012. “It’ll absolutely be this year, but timing-wise, I don’t know exactly when,” she said.
Fair enough, but do find out soon – we’d really appreciate it.Tags: epic records, fiona apple, fiona apple 2012, fiona apple new album, fiona apple new album 2012, la reid, new album, new music, Time Magazine, Twitter
