Alanis' New/Old Jagged Little (Acoustic) Pill; 10 Year Anniversary

Alanis Pulls Plug on "Pill"

This Pill is going down easier.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the album that catapulted her to stardom and emasculated men everywhere via the hit single "You Oughta Know," Alanis Morissette plans to release an acoustic version of Jagged Little Pill on June 13.

The singer is reuniting in the studio with Glen Ballard, who coproduced and cowrote Jagged Little Pill, for the unplugged version, which will hit stores exactly 10 years to the day the original came out

The new disc will initially only be available in Starbucks' 4,500 stores across North America. Traditional retailers won't be able to sell the CD until July 26.

Morissette says the acoustic set will follow the Pill track listing, but will "reinterpret the songs in ways that developed in my touring and acoustic shows over the past 10 years."

The 2.0 edition will also feature some extras, including video footage of her 18-month tour in 1995-96 and new artwork.

Jagged Little Pill has sold more than 30 million units worldwide, 14.4 million copies in the U.S., where it ranks as the best-selling debut ever by a female artist.

Morissette has not been able to repeat that breakthrough success. Her three subsequent studio albums--1998's Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, 2002's Under Rug Swept and 2004's So Called Chaos--have sold well, but not approached Pill's status as pop phenomenon.

Aside from "You Oughta Know," Pill spawned such radio-friendly hits as "Ironic," "One Hand in My Pocket," You Learn" and "Head over Feet" and earned Morissette four Grammy Awards, including Album of the year--all at the tender age of 21.

"I was in survival mode when Jagged Little Pill came out," says the singer, now 30. "I am able now, with a little distance, to appreciate it and have some objectivity. I love this record and am warmed by the thought of tipping my hat to it 10 years later."

"The songs from Jagged Little Pill were written and recorded in a trance, and now the opportunity for us to revisit these songs a decade later is both a treat and an act of discovery," says Ballard.

To accompany the release, Morissette is lining up her first acoustic trek--dubbed the Diamond Wink Tour--that will make stops at small venues across the country in June and July and feature all of Pill, along with some other favorites from subsequent releases.

This year is shaping up to be a big one for the singer. News of Pill popping anew comes just three weeks after the Canadian-born Morissette was sworn in as a United States. She's also slated to tie the knot with actor Ryan Reynolds in the coming months.

And after the acoustic album and tour, Morissette plans to start work on a new, largely electrified project; meanwhile, a greatest-hits package that will feature one or two new tracks will likely hit stores around Christmas.

Apparently this will ship with a DVD. Not sure what's to be on it at this point.

Shania was just certified 20 million in the US for Come On Over so Alanis is going to have to sell a little over 5.5 million to surpass Shania's record - Not impossible, but I think it will be a tough feat just because it's harder these days to get those kinds of sales because of online downloading and burning.

I will definitely consider buying the album, it will be interesting to look back on the songs and hear them in a new way from the original sound of 10 years ago.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

What's interesting about the album JLP is that it's aggressive, raw... By doing an accoustic version she basically removes what makes the album interesting. Who wants to hear a slow or accoustic version of Ironic, All I really Want or Not the Doctor? I'm falling asleep just to think about it.
Point taken, but everybody and their mother already owns Jagged Little Pill...and let's face it, she's had three REAL hits since JLP ("Thank U," "Uninvited," and "Hands Clean") compared to five from Pill. She needs to try and reinvent JLP if she's going to re-release it because she won't be able to introduce any new fans with it.

The music she has made since her first album is far better. "Supposed" is one of the best albums of the 90s, and her other two albums are pretty damn good as well. Unfortunately, her record label has done an absolutely SHIT job of promoting her new work, so consequently she hasn't sold as much and nobody has really heard anything new from her.

I strongly disagree, especially about the "far better" part.
"Supposed" is very good but also different which doesn't make it better automatically.
The next two are not as good IMO. Actually they are a little boring, for Alanis' standards. Not innovative.

Agree about the bad marketing though.

I totally agree. JLP was great. It is still one of my favourite albums ever.
SFIJ was good, but I felt it lacked some of the Pill's original energy and I didn't enjoy it as much. And the last two are, IMO, just not "real" Alanis.
