Fiona Apple and Paul Thomas Anderson Get Back Together for ‘Hot Knife’

As fans of the work of Fiona Apple and Paul Thomas Anderson, we get especially excited about the work of Fiona Apple and Paul Thomas Anderson. Especially when the results are as visually stunning and musically captivating as the newly released video for “Hot Knife,” the closing track off of Apple’s masterful, year-old record, The Idler Wheel … The video has reportedly been in the works for a while now — Apple mentioned the clip last year while promoting the record, saying Anderson had started work on it before shooting commenced on The Master a few years prior. A casual attitude about promptly releasing new work is one of many traits that Apple and Anderson share, but at least the video is finally here for our enjoyment.
