Fiona Apple has contributed a brand new song entitled “Container” to Showtime’s forthcoming original series The Affair. Produced by frequent collaborator, Blake Mills, the song will soundtrack the show’s main title sequence, which you can see and hear below.
In a statement, the show’s creator and executive producer Sarah Treem said, “Fiona Apple has been my favorite songwriter since I was 16. I am honored and humbled that she has chosen to lend her talent to our opening title sequence. If our show can approach one tenth of the depth and complexity of her song, I’ll be very happy.”
Starring Dominic West (aka “McNulty” from The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Luther), The Affair “explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair, and will be told separately from the male and female perspectives,” according to a press release. It will premiere Sunday, October 12th at 10 p.m. ET.
We’re very happy to see Fiona back, a beautiful human being.
Fiona, who canceled a run of dates last November to be with her dying dog, seemed giddy to be back on stage,” When she sang, it was like nothing else in the world existed for her: just the song and the microphone, a relationship she has mastered. …
Fiona made light of past blow-ups: ‘People come see me to see the crash,’ she said early on, and fell to the floor in a knowing pratfall.” Stereogum corroborates the night’s generally wonderful nature, reporting that the crowd “cheered as Fiona bent her body into all manner of uncomfortable looking shapes, and shouted the occasional word of encouragement and love. But they otherwise they kept mum out of respect or a simple fear that they could frighten the fragile 36-year-old away at any moment.”
No more. Fiona is in great shape both physically and emotionally. A woman who is kind at heart and caring.
Welcome back Fiona!
