Who is fiona apple dating
During her hiatus, Apple contemplated retiring from her recording career.
Apple sang with Johnny Cash on a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge over Troubled Water" that ended up on his album American IV: The Man Comes Around and was nominated for a Grammy Award for "Best Country Collaboration with Vocals".
Apple agreed, and Brion went to Apple's label, Epic Records, with strict stipulations (including no deadline), which the label eventually agreed to.
Recording sessions began in 2002, at Ocean Way studios in Nashville, Tennessee, but later moved to the Paramour Mansion in Los Angeles.
The album received a positive reception from publications such as The New York Times and Rolling Stone.
It did not fare as well commercially as her debut, though it was an RIAA-certified platinum album The album's lead single, "Fast as You Can", reached the top twenty on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart and became Apple's first Top 40 hit in the UK.
She also collaborated with Cash on Cat Stevens's "Father and Son", which was included in his 2003 collection Unearthed.
Her accolades include one Grammy Award, and an additional six Grammy Award nominations in various categories.
At the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards, Apple accepted the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist for her song "Sleep to Dream".
During her acceptance speech, she said: This world is bullshit.
However, Apple was reportedly unhappy with the production and opted not to release the record, leading fans to erroneously protest Epic Records, believing that the label was withholding its release.
The album was eventually reproduced without Brion and released in October 2005.
