Fiona Apple's notoriously shy about sharing new music, but she's just dropped a short-and-sweet new one, "Container," a thrilling, eighty-second number that'll soundtrack the opening credits of Showtime's new series The Affair, which, title-appropriately, follows the psychological effects of an extramarital fling from many perspectives. "I have only one thing to do and that's be the way that I am and then sink back into the ocean," Apple sings, her voice chillingly layered over a minimal backdrop that sounds like an orchestra warming up miles away. We wish it was about twenty minutes longer, but we'll settle for this. Check it out along with the show's credit sequence, below.
It's the theme song for Showtime's The Affair.
