Fiona Apple has an "Extraordinary Machine" that indeed makes her music career and attainment extraordinary as well. The first album the singer/songwriter produced in six years has been released Tuesday and already is the top-seller at Apple's iTunes Music Store.
In support of the new set, which is a follow-up to 1999's "When the Pawn...", Apple will embark on a three-week tour, beginning November 22 in Portland, Ore. Prior to that she will on Thursday perform and sign autographs at Tower Records in West Hollywood, Calif. While her touring band has yet to be announced, we've had her touring date.
