Gears and Tears - The Idler Wheel... - Netflix

The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, frequently abridged as The Idler Wheel..., is the fourth studio album by Fiona Apple. Like her second album When the Pawn..., its title derives from a poem written by Apple herself. It was released on June 19, 2012, by Epic Records. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, her highest debut yet, selling 72,000 copies in its first week. The album received a nomination at the 2013 Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Album. The album was included in best of the year lists by several publications.

Following the delays and controversy surrounding the release of Extraordinary Machine (2005), Apple began recording new material for her fourth studio album in secret, including from her label, Epic Records. When asked by BlackBook magazine when the recording sessions began, Apple remarked, “It must have started in 2008. Or 2009. I don't know! I have no idea. It's weird to think that there was 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011. Where've I been? What was I doing? What was that year about?” Apple elaborated, Instead of her long-time collaborator Jon Brion, Apple opted to produce the album with her touring drummer, Charley Drayton. Executives at Epic found out that Apple had recorded an album in early 2012, when she presented it to them. The album was originally planned for release in 2011, but Apple delayed the release until her label found a new president in 2012, explaining that she “didn't want her work to be mishandled amid corporate disarray.” During a secret concert in Los Angeles with Brion, Apple remarked, “I can't remember any of my new songs because they've been done for a fucking year.” In January 2012, L.A. Reid announced through Twitter that new material from Apple would be released later in 2012.
