Singer Fiona Apple is gearing up for a chart return with her first album in seven years.
The Criminal star has been working on the follow up to 2005's critically-acclaimed Extraordinary Machine for some time and was previously slated to release her new material in the spring of 2011.
The project failed to materialise, but now Epic Label Group boss Antonio 'L.A.' Reid reveals fans will be hearing from the singer/songwriter soon.
In a series of Twitter.com posts he writes, "Lot's (sic) of good music coming from @Epic_Records in the next few weeks. Stay tuned music fans. Welcome back Fiona!... YES Fiona Apple!"
