Ignoring her record company's advice to wait until October, Fiona is releasing Fetch The Bolt Cutters digitally in two weeks!!
This announcement comes after she teased her desire to release the album "soon, like really soon".
- In a (highly recommended) New Yorker profile, Fiona said the title was inspired from a scene in the police drama "The Fall", where Gillian Anderson's character calls out the phrase after finding a locked door to a room where a girl had been tortured. "Really, what it’s about is not being afraid to speak."
- The album’s 13 tracks were composed and recorded at home with Fiona at times “stomping on the walls, on the floor—playing her house.” The album was inspired by her fascination with the potential of using a band “as an organism instead of an assemblage—something natural”, and is described as raw, unslick, and percussion-heavy (drums, chants, bells, wooden blocks).
- She considered putting a sketch of Harvey Weinstein using his walker in her album art.
- “For Her” was written shortly after Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, and other titles include: “Newspaper” (featuring harmonies by her sister), “On I Go”, “The Drumset Is Gone”, “Rack of His”, “Kick Me Under the Table” (featuring lyrics: 'I would beg to disagree / But begging disagrees with me'), “Ladies”, “Shameka”, “Heavy Balloon”, “Fetch the Bolt Cutters” (on which Cara Delevingne meows) and “I Want You to Love Me”.
- Fiona also announced plans to release When The Pawn... on vinyl but with the original artwork, by Paul Thomas Anderson, swapped out.
