Jagged Little Pill was an angsty, 90's anthem for all ex-girlfriends scorned as Alanis Morissette lent her clever lyrics and angry voice to millions around the world. Just trailing the album's 20th anniversary on June 9, Morissette decided to share the first song she ever penned with producer Glen Ballard, taking only one hour to craft upon their first meeting in 1994. Now, the previously unheard track, "The Bottom Line," has been unveiled.
The uncovered track is now available to stream just ahead of the 20th anniversary Jagged Little Pill reissue, which sold over 33 million copies. As Entertainment Weekly notes, the singer's third, full-length album will soon be available as a four disc, collector's edition as well as a two-disc deluxe version, slated for arrival on Oct. 30 via Rhino. "The Bottom Line," however is only available to stream from Oct. 23 through Nov. 30.
Jagged Little Pill: Collector's Edition will only see 30,000 released copies worldwide, boasting remastered audio of the 1995 hit album, 10 unreleased demo tracks hand picked by the "Head Over Heels" singer and an unreleased concert from her live U.K. debut along with a copy of 2005's Jagged Little Pill Acoustic.
"I'm super excited to share this music with a whole new generation of peeps, as well as people who have grown along with me over the last two decades," Morissette said via Billboard. "Thankfully, these songs have stood the test of time for me, and in their timelessness, I am thrilled to honor and reflect on them as well as the last twenty years of my life and career."
The box set also offers the singer's never-before-seen pictures, stories detailing the 10 1994-1998 demos and a brand new essay reminiscing the creation of Jagged Little Pill. Ballard kept a watchful eye on all mixing and mastering for the impending collector's edition. "Twenty years has not diminished the energy and excitement we captured on these recordings from 1994," he said in a press statement. "It's been a joy to sit with these tracks after two decades and to find them in such good shape. The power of digital recording gives us this time machine and, although we are twenty years older, this music still sounds fresh!"
The JLP singer recently stormed the 1989 tour stage with Taylor Swift for a powerful rendition of her fan-favorite track, "You Oughta Know."
