Fiona Apple will tour the United States in 2012.

We recently announced that Fiona Apple will play Pitchfork’s 2012 SXSW showcase, and in that article we speculated that a few circumstances (including a “welcome back, Fiona” tweet from her label’s CEO) might spell a new album on the horizon. The evidence only gets stronger, as she looks to be gearing up for a promotional run with a small US tour in 2012.
