Alanis is back

I've been listening to a lot of new music lately, and one song that's in heavy rotation is Alanis Morissette's new single, "Guardian." It's not only melodically pleasing (read: super catchy), but the lyrics are a unique combination of inner realizations and warrior-like declarations with a comforting, soothing undertone. Not easy to pull off a strong & sweet vibe...but Morissette does it effortlessly. It's a breath of fresh air (especially in today's typically musically/lyrically/vocally challenged culture), to listen to gifted artists who are thought provoking (and extra bonus: uplifting). The new album, "Havok & Bright Lights," will be released the end of August. I can't remember the last time I was excited for an album to come out! I hope the rest of the songs follow suit with a similar message and feel. Can't wait to check it out!

Here's a clip of Alanis talking about her inspiration behind "Guardian."
What do you think? Any artists you're crushing on lately?
