Fiona Apple shared the story in a new profile in The New Yorker.

Fiona Apple is the subject of a new in-depth profile in The New Yorker. Written by TV critic Emily Nussbaum, the profile details the creation of Apple’s upcoming album Fetch the Bolt Cutters. Whilst talking to Nussbaum, Apple shared details from her relationship with acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson, explaining that she quit taking cocaine after “one excruciating night” spent at Quentin Tarantino’s house with her former partner. Recalling the evening she jokes “every addict should just get locked in a private movie theatre with Q.T. and P.T.A. on coke, and they’ll never want to do it again.”

Apple went on to share details of her and her band’s time at Sonic Ranch studios in Texas where one band member “accidentally ate snake poison, and [she] watched the movie Whiplash on mushrooms.” The profile also reveals new details about Apple’s new album, including the fact that Cara Delevigne features on the track On I Go.
