Watch: Fiona Apple’s new “Hot Knife” video

It took Fiona Apple all of five years to drop 2012′s “The Idler Wheel…,” so it should come as no surprise its first music video hasn’t dropped until today.

Well, that and the fact she tapped the similarly meticulous Paul Thomas Anderson (“There Will Be Blood,” “Boogie Nights”) to direct it. The video for “Hot Knife” also features Fiona’s sister, who sings back-up vocals in the song.

Check it out the video for “Hot Knife” in all of its drum-beating, vocal layered glory below.

Check out our review of Fiona Apple’s show at the Paramount last year here. Luckily, Denver was able to see Apple before she canceled tour dates because of her dying dog. She broke the news fans with four hand-written pages scanned and posted on Facebook.
