On 30 October, Alanis Morissette will release special collector’s and deluxe editions of her critically acclaimed 1995 international debut LP Jagged Little Pill, to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of its release.
Both reissues feature ten previously unreleased demos of tracks that were recorded during the initial sessions sessions, and today the audio for one such track – Superstar Wonderful Weirdos – was shared on the Canadian Grammy Award winner’s VEVO page.
“Having been labeled many things — weird, intense, intimidating, scary, psychobabbler, and my favorite: ‘too much,’ I wanted to write a song about having all these qualities within me to contend with, in a world that loves to reduce and categorize,” Morissette is quoted by Billboard as saying about the track.
Jagged Little Pill topped charts across the world upon its release and earned Alanis four Grammy wins in 1996, out of the six that she was nominated for. It spawned the classic 90s singles Ironic, Head Over Feet, You Learn, Hand In My Pocket and You Oughta Know.
As well as featuring the original track listing and new demos, the Collector’s Edition will include the tenth anniversary acoustic version of the album released in 2005, and a live recording of the singer in concert, filmed in 1995 at London’s Subterranea.
