Fiona Apple Covers ‘Here We Have Idaho’ for ‘This American Life’

    Fiona Apple has delivered a rendition of the Idaho State song for the May 26 episode of NPR’s This American Life, titled ‘Jane Doe’, as Stereogum notes. The episode follows the story of a 19-year-old intern at the Idaho state legislature who accused state Representative Aaron von Ehlinger of raping her in 2021. Though not widely available, Apple’s cover of ‘Here We Have Idaho’ can be heard at the end of Act Two, starting at the 1:00:52 mark in the online stream. It features backing from drummer Amy Wood, guitarist David Garza, bassist Sebastian Steinberg, and guitarist-engineer John Would. Check it out here.

    Last year, Apple released the original song ‘Where the Shadows Lie’ for Prime Video’s Lord of the Rings series. More recently, she scored and narrated a short film about the importance of court watching.
