    New single Reasons I Drink is OUT NOW with a new album Such Pretty Forks In The Road due 1 May 2020, her first in 8 years (she's lazy at the moment).

    She's on CBS later today apparently talking about the new album.

    There's also quite a bit of buzz around Jagged Little Pill The Musical which starts on Broadway in a couple of weeks. I think it sounds awful from the clips but each to their own.

    I think it sounds good from the tiny bit that we can hear! I already like it more than the Havoc era :D

    :D at titles, cover and everything else

    I'm sure it will be quite tedious! :disco:

    (I very much enjoyed a couple of songs on Havoc actually)

    She had short hair last year. Fortunately she grew it and/or is wearing extensions now. Not that there's anything wrong with short hair but I just associate her so much with her long hair that it's hard to stomach.

    It was part of her plan to get her husband to dump her so she could write another album.

    What titles. What a woman. Truly the Carole King of our times (the 90s).

    Oh and as much as I love her OUVRE, nothing is ever going to top the ANGRY KICK in the BALLS that is You Oughta Know for me.

    "Such pretty forks in the road" is a lyric from one of the new songs she wrote for the musical so presumably her version of that will be on the album somewhere.

    I can't help but feel that the announcement insta is a LITTLE shady to poor old Liz. :bruised:



    It's very "Also aboard, LIMEY COMEDIENNE STACEY PULLMAN"

    It does have the air of “Also appearing, even though we didn’t ASK :rolleyes: ...Liz Phair.”

    Bit of a cheek considering Alanis stole Liz’s Grammy.

    The QUEEN OF POP has returned to save us ALL etc. etc.

    Seriously though I love it, but

    That opening piano riff is very Emile Sande 'Next to Me', no?

    It might be because Liz will only be appearing on select dates of the tour whilst Garbage will be there for the whole haul? That's what I'd like to think. Surely Alanis is far too enlightened and spiritually enriched to be shady in 2019?

    The vocals are so ON POINT :disco:

    I've missed her voice.

    Oh I don’t believe it’s anything to do with Alanis at all. Unless she’s designing her own posters. :D

    My first thought was "Honourable mention goes to Liz for showing up"

    Alanis has always been in the “always liked never loved” category for me along with the likes of peak Sheryl Crow and Natalie Imbruglia. I’d probably have upgraded her if the likes of Polly, Kate, Aimee, Tori, Fiona, Heather to name a few hadn’t been around.

    Albums:

    1 Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie
    2 Under Rug Swept
    3 Jagged Little Pill
    4 So Called Chaos
    5 Flavors Of Entanglement
    6 Havoc And Bright Lights

    12 of her best songs:

    You Oughta Know
    Hand In My Pocket
    Thank U
    So Pure
    Joining You
    Hands Clean
    Precious Illusions
    You Owe Me Nothing In Return
    Doth I Protest Too Much
    Everything
    Straitjacket
    Guardian

    Isn’t it a tad odd she’s choosing to tour JLP when she has a new album out? It’s a great bill, though Alanis is my 3rd favourite on it.

    Jagged Little Pill was such a significant album for me at the time though; and to a lesser extent Supposed and even Under Rug Swept. She will always have a special place in my heart.

    Not at all. JLP25th anniversary tour is far more likely to sell concert tickets than a new album!

    Her set lists are always JLP heavy anyway, so she might as well sell the tour at an angle that will shift more tickets.

    It's also off the back of Jagged Little Pill the musical which hits Broadway this month.

    Of course I know why she’s doing it but most artists of her ilk would be focusing on the new album.
