Fiona Apple appeared on The New Yorker’s virtual festival on Saturday (October 10). Accompanied by a small ensemble of musicians, the singer-songwriter performed three tracks from her latest album Fetch the Bolt Cutters live for the first time ever: ‘I Want You to Love Me’, ‘Shameika’, and title track. Watch her performance below.
In addition to the performance, Apple also joined New Yorker’s Emily Nussbaum for an interview covering what she’s been up to during lockdown, her new album, and US politics.
Fetch the Bolt Cutters arrived in April and topped our Best Albums of the Year (So Far) list. Since then, Apple contributed to Bob Dylan’s latest album Rough and Rowdy Ways and wrote music for the Apple TV+ show Central Park. She also narrated a short film about how to safely document and record U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests.
