In 1996 came the debut album Tidal from. In America there were three million copies of the album sold, with which the album was triple platinum. To the singles from the album included "Criminal", "Sleep to Dream", "Shadowboxer" and "Never is a Promise".

When the Pawn...[Edit]Edit

In 1999, they released the second album, whose full title is a very little poem: When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks Like a King. What He Knows Throws the Blows When He Goes to the Fight. And he'll Win the Whole Thing ' Fore He Enters the Ring. There's No Body To Batter When Your Mind is Your Might. So When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand. And Remember That Depth is the Greatest of Heights. And If You Know Where You Stand, Then You Know Where to Land. And If You Fall It Won't Matter, Cuz you'll Know That you're Right. The album was generally well received by the press and was certified Platinum. At the time Apple had a relationship with film director Paul Thomas Anderson.

Extraordinary Machine[Edit]Edit

The third album, Extraordinary Machine, was originally produced by Jon Brion . In May 2003 the concept was submitted to Sony. However, they were reportedly not keen on the end result and the project was suspended more than two years. Stories that the album by Sony was rejected because there was no real single by Apple contradicted yourself.

In 2004 parts of the album leaked out via internet . Then the music spread rapidly through various P2Pnetworks and was there even an unofficial Free Fiona-action group was set up. On 15 August 2005 the long awaited album officially came out. Apple took large parts of the album and left the production over to Mike Elizondo. The album also contained a new song, it just carried out with piano Parting Gift

The Idler Wheel ...[Edit]Edit

In april 2012, it was announced that Apple would release a fourth album. As with When the Pawn... , the album title from a poem by this time 23 words. The full title reads The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. There was going to be a period of seven years prior to the album silence. Even record company Epic did not know that Apple was working with a plate. The album contains a naked production and a dark dissonant sound provided by producer and percussionist Charley Drayton. The first single, Every Single Night, that appeared on 8 may 2012, could count on positive noises from critics and fans.
