Alanis Morissette Covers Herself In Glitter For New Album Cover

Canadian singer Alanis Morissette — who became a household name after releasing her groundbreaking record Jagged Little Pill — recently took to Instagram to announce the title of her next album, Such Pretty Forks In The Road. Along with the announcement, she posted eye-catching promotional artwork for the project.

In the close-up shot, Morissette was completely covered in multicolored glitter. The “Hands Clean” songstress slicked her brunette hair back and threw her head backward for the snap, keeping her closed her eyes and mouth open in a blissful smile. While posing in front of a black backdrop, she raised her hand toward her face and appeared to be in mid-motion when the photo was taken.

In the caption of the post, the “You Oughta Know” hitmaker revealed that there will be 11 tracks on the forthcoming record, including two pre-released songs — “Reasons I Drink” and “Smiling.” The big announcement stirred up some major excitement among the singer’s Instagram followers. In the span of just 11 hours, Morissette’s post racked up more than 24,000 likes and upwards of 1,300 comments.

“I will certainly be getting this album. Your music played a massive part of my teenage years. For this I am ever grateful,” wrote one Instagram user.

“Dear lord woman this album cover is everything,” replied another follower.

“OMG!!!! I can’t wait to hear it!!! And hopefully, I’ll get to hear it live in Barcelona or somewhere else in Spain,” wrote a third fan.

“Welcome Back!!! I’m soooo ready for it!!! Can’t wait to get into that unique lyrics Alanis!!!” commented a fourth admirer, along with several red-heart emoji.

According to Alanis Morissette’s official online merchandise store, Such Pretty Forks In The Road will be released on May 1 and can be pre-ordered on both CD and vinyl.

As previously reported by Billboard, the singer’s last studio album, Havoc and Bright Lights, was released eight years ago in 2012 and peaked at No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

Morissette’s extended absence from the music scene was likely due to the birth of her son, Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway, last year. The “Hand In My Pocket” chart-topper has had three children with her husband, rapper Mario Treadway, whom she married in 2010.

Morissette has yet to announce any tour dates that might be in the works to promote her forthcoming album release. However, she is scheduled to embark on a special event tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jagged Little Pill.
