Turn It Up: Alanis Morissette - Guardian (Lyric Video)
One of the announcements I have been waiting for all year has finally been made. It's been 4 years since Alanis Morissette released her last album (2008's Flavors Of Entanglement) and now she is coming back with the release of her 8th studio album on August 28th, entitled "Havoc & Bright Lights".
The first single "Guardian" was released on May 15th and I have completely fallen in love with this track. It is so fresh and summery that it has me in crazy anticipation for the rest of the record.
Speaking about this track, Alanis stated,
"The greatest offering and aspiration within any relationship, for me, is the willingness to combine protection, commitment, vulnerability, tenacity, tenderness, constancy, empathy, mutuality, intentionality, innocence, presence, courage, freedom-offering and beautiful humanity at the same time. this song speaks to that commitment to both my sweet son, as well as my own inner child.”
The official lyric video (above) features artwork taken from the new album.
The tracklisting for Havoc & Bright Lights will be as follows...
2) Woman Down
3) Til You
10) Win & Win
12) Edge Of Evolution
As an added bonus, take a look at this video posted by her about the inspiration behind the song.
