The famous singer Alanis Morissette decided to write songs until her death. She said that she becomes ”really depressed” when she is not writing a new song.
The singer has vowed to write songs until she’s ”dead”. She recently released her eighth studio album ‘Havoc and Bright Lights’ and doesn’t ever plan to hang up her microphone and give up her beloved career.
She said to Digital Spy:
”I’ll be writing records until I’m dead, whether people like it or not! I can’t not write, if I don’t then I get really depressed. I’ll keep going, I promise!”
Alanis Morissette said that she is very ”excited” that there is a bhuge existence of successful female artists in the music industry nowadays compared to when she shot to fame in the early stages of the decade.
”I’m excited about there being more of a sisterhood these days. Back in the ’90s there was a lot of hate – the women I looked up to as artists were dissing me! It’s not so patriarchal these days – there’s more love and a lot less hate!”
Alanis admits the inspiration for ‘Havoc and Bright Lights’ was taken from a number of her previous records as well as her early musical influences in life such as Etta James and Leonard Cohen.
”This record definitely feels like an integration of parts of my previous records. As a kid I was listening to Aretha Franklin, Etta James and hip-hop as well as music my parents were listening to like Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. Obviously I live for big pop choruses as well, so the whole thing feels like a bit of an arrival point.”
