Alanis Morissette – Reckoning (Sony) 

Release Date: Out Now

You can say what you like about Alanis Morissette but she is consistently true to herself and her sense of truth. The Canadian superstar’s new single is a typically impassioned affair with dramatic, rolling piano notes being nudged along by a steady and almost military beat to allow Morissette’s trademark vocals to speak their message and speak they do. This has the same level of production as something theatrical or cinematic with the addition of sweeping strings and more snow sprinkled piano notes adding to the complex but carefully arranged layers. The new album comes out at the end of July and this certainly bodes well.
