Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Pitchfork: Watch Fiona Apple Give a Rare TV Interview on Democracy Now!

DN! in the NewsApril 29, 2020

Pitchfork featured Democracy Now!'s in-depth interview with singer-songwriter Fiona Apple following the release of her newest album, “Fetch the Boltcutters.” The influential online music magazine awarded Apple's album a 10-out-of-10 score, its first perfect rating in nearly a decade.

Evan Minsker writes in Pitchfork:

Apple discussed the process of recording the new album, including the moment she fully embraced her anger while singing the version of “For Her” that appears on Fetch the Bolt Cutters.

She also discussed the label’s proposal that she release the album in October and why she fought to have it come out earlier.

Check out the piece in Pitchfork and watch the full interview here, which also features Eryn Wise, organizer with the Indigenous-led collective Seeding Sovereignty, discussing land acknowledgements and Seeding Sovereignty’s rapid response initiative to help Indigenous communities affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
