Be Still My GenX Heart! Alanis Morrissette To Release “The Collection” On Vinyl

It’s no big secret that I’m not exactly a spring chicken (or chick in this case) which means I developed most of my musical tastes in the 90’s. When I tell you that the secret song on Alanis Morisette’s “Jagged Little Pill” had a grip on my tortured teenage heart, I mean it! I would sing it, belting at the top of my lungs, pouring into my performance for an audience of none every bit of emotion I didn’t have words for myself. It’s crazy how we choose the soundtracks to our lives, and even crazier how some artists own the most real estate in those soundtracks.

Alanis Morrissette To Release The Collection On Vinyl

Alanis Morissette definitely has several songs in the WhiskeyChick musical library, which is why I’m excited to announce that Rhino Records is prepping for the vinyl debut of Alanis Morissette’s 2005 greatest hits album, The Collection, set for release on August 25th. On the heels of the icon’s 49th birthday, and in honor of the impact of her music, this 2LP will span the seven-time Grammy® winner’s career between 1995 and 2005. From her #1 album Jagged Little Pill to her gold-certified MTV Unplugged performance and more.

THE COLLECTION covers the seven-time Grammy® Award-winner’s career between 1995 and 2005, when the Canadian popstar first broke out in the States. It includes a handful of Morissette’s well-known singles, several soundtrack selections, and her performance of Seal’s hit “Crazy,” which debuted on THE COLLECTION in 2005.

Five songs from her #1 album, Jagged Little Pill (1995), appear on the set, including the smash singles “You Oughta Know,” “Ironic,” and “You Learn.” The album catapulted Morissette to global stardom, earning her five Grammy® awards, including Album of the Year. The record was certified 16x platinum, selling over 33 million copies worldwide. It is the 16th best-selling album of all time in the U.S. and the third best-selling album by a female artist.

Morissette returned in 1998 with the triple-platinum album Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, which is represented on THE COLLECTION by a trio of songs, including the Top 20 hit “Thank You.” “Hands Clean” from her 2002 platinum album, Under Rug Swept, is featured along with “Eight Easy Steps” from 2004’s So-Called Chaos.

Several songs on THE COLLECTION weren’t released on Morissette’s studio albums, like “Princes Familiar” from her 1999 gold-certified MTV Unplugged album and “Sister Blister” from the 2002 compilation Feast on Scraps. A few of the singer’s soundtrack contributions are featured here, including “Still” from Kevin Smith’s 1999 film, Dogma, where Morissette played the role of God.
