Description

Ambitious, exhilarating, heartbreaking and unlike anything else.

Her fifth album, recorded in her home well before mandated isolation, is her first in eight years. It’s deeply percussive, unflinchingly personal, astoundingly unique and – most vitally – extraordinarily good.

That final point seems overly simple when describing an album of such grand and often bizarre ambition. But Apple’s lived experience in music – the fights, the triumphs, the frustration, the joy – put her in a good position to break so many rules and still come out with a cohesive piece of art.

Her voice sounds different now. She’s no longer just a singer, she’s a beat poet, a rapper, a woman in distress and a foley artist. Her singing, her noises, her conversational passages… they’re all vital in this album’s tapestry. It sounds weird sometimes, but never without reason.
