Nothing is capable of making you suddenly aware of your mortality more than the moment you realize the music of your youth is now classic rock.
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.
Alanis Morissette didn't just fill in for Green Day on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' last night (Sept. 26), as the pop-punk had to forfeit their booking as a result of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong addressing his substance abuse issues in rehab after last week's dramatic iHeart Radio Festival rant. She also paid homage to the band, performing 'Basket Case,' the same song Armstrong used to launch his expletive-filled tirade about having to shorten his set.
Alanis Morissette was once the queen of angst during the '90s when her breakout single, 'You Oughta Know,' was released in 1995 from her multi-platinum album 'Jagged Little Pill.' Fast forward 17 years and four albums later, and we have a new single from the singer that sounds, well, uplifting.
