Alanis Morissette Records New Song for Congressional Candidate

Subscribe to on

Alanis Morissette, who hasn’t been heard from in a couple years since the release of ‘Havoc and Bright Lights,’ came out hiding today to premiere a new song she wrote and recorded for congressional candidate Marianne Williamson.

The song, ‘Today,’ is basically a campaign piece for Williamson, who’s running in California’s District 33 as an independent candidate. You can watch the video (yes, it’s pretty much propaganda) above.

The song is also available as a free download on Williamson’s website, so you can put it on your iPod and take it to the gym with you. And with such lyrics as “Smile upside down / Rupture is rising / Families are scrambling for custody / Faithlessly drowned” guiding ‘Today,’ it’s quite the motivator.

“I was attempting to capture the passion, mission, activism, deep humanity and tenderness of Marianne, the new political sensibility she represents and the consciousness that produced it,” Morissette says in a statement. “I love this song. I love this woman and I love a world that would vote for her.”

Morissette will perform the song at a free pre-election rally for Williamson on May 19 in Los Angeles. If you can’t make it, the whole thing will be streamed here.

Here’s the song in its audio form, in case you don’t feel like watching Morissette and Williamson in action.
