On her new album Havoc and Bright Lights, Alanis Morissette distills her entire body of work into its closing track Edge of Evolution: “…we’re ready to push envelopes into full-blown consciousness,” she declares in the final verse.
“The evolution of our consciousness can be such a lofty, overly heady, and, frankly, confusing conversation for people,” Morissette says. “So the song is an invitation to clarify and support what growth, healing, connection and self-expression really means for each person. Ultimately, supporting people’s next courageous step is all I really care about. I think that’s what my contribution is — to engage musically, lyrically and publicly in the conversation about my and our humanity….this movement toward wholeness, rather than perfection or goodness, and deepening intimacy, connection and authenticity is such a big part of what I’m here to contribute.”
“A song starts with the seed, or the essence of an idea,” she says, and is written in under an hour.” “I far prefer writing about the personal and the micro in a concise way. That’s what interests me. Rather than paint overly broad strokes, I’d rather write about the one-on-one of personal interactions. And then allow it to be a commentary on the more macro effects we see in the world, from there.”
The Ottawa, Canada, native first rose to international fame in 1995 with her four-time Grammy Award-winning album Jagged Little Pill, which at 16x-platinum remains the best-selling debut release by a female artist in the U.S. and the highest-selling debut album worldwide in music history.
She has scored a series of memorable singles off her subsequent studio albums 1998’s Supposed Former Infatuation (which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart and featured the international, Grammy-nominated smash single Thank U), 2002’s Under Rug Swept (which also debuted at No. 1), 2004’s So-Called Chaos (featuring the Adult Top 40 mainstay Everything), and 2008’s Top 10 Flavors of Entanglement. She has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide, seven Grammy Awards (and received an additional 14 Grammy nominations), and won 12 Juno Awards.
