Fiona Apple fans have waited a long seven years for her fourth album -- so it's fitting that the album title is, well, long!

On Wednesday, the quirky singer-songwriter revealed that her new album's title will be a whopping a 23 words:

The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do.

Now 34, Apple is no stranger to tongue-twisting, not-so-brief names for her works. Her 1999 album, known by its abbreviated title When the Pawn, was actually an eight-line poem which took up the entire cover of the record.

The new album will likely be known short-hand as The Idler Wheel. Although a release date has not yet been set, Apple's label is eyeing a June release, and the "Criminal" singer has scheduled several tour dates starting this month.
