Nearly two decades ago, acclaimed singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette released her greatest hits CD, The Collection, and the set will finally see its vinyl debut this summer.

The Collection will be available on August 25th, 2023 as a 2-LP on black vinyl which you can pre-order here. A transparent grape-vinyl version will be available the same day exclusively from HMV, as well as your local Record Store Day indie retailer.

The Collection covers the seven-time Grammy® Award-winner’s career between 1995 and 2005, including a handful of Morissette’s well-known singles, several soundtrack selections, and her performance of Seal’s hit “Crazy,” which debuted on The Collection in 2005. The Collection will also feature five songs from her #1 album, Jagged Little Pill (1995), including the smash singles “You Oughta Know,” “Ironic,” and “You Learn.”

Several songs on The Collection weren’t released on Morissette’s studio albums, like “Princes Familiar” from her 1999 gold-certified MTV Unplugged album and “Sister Blister” from the 2002 compilation Feast on Scraps.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
