As early voting begins throughout the United States, Fiona Apple has shared her personal encouragement to go vote with a winking endorsement for Joe Biden. In a video posted by her shut buddy Zelda Hallman on Instagram, Apple sings George and Ira Gershwin’s “Bidin’ My Time,” from their 1930 musical Girl Crazy, and flashes her “I Voted” sticker. Watch it beneath.
Apple has supported quite a few progressive causes this yr, akin to narrating a video about how to document immigration arrests. She’s channeled royalties from her Fetch the Bolt Cutters tracks “Shameika” and “Heavy Balloon” to non-profit efforts, which she did final yr with the royalties for “Criminal.” She mentioned Indigenous land acknowledgement in an interview with Democracy Now! in April and adopted that by supporting a campaign to aid Indigenous communities affected by COVID-19.
