Alanis Morissette has released a new remix EP, Such Pretty Forks in the Mix, which features a group of trans-inclusive, women artists reimagining songs from her 2020 album, Such Pretty Forks in the Road. The EP arrives via Epiphany Music in collaboration with HE.SHE.THEY Records.
The project features contributions from Lauren Faith, MUNA, Girlpool, Muhsinah, Eris Drew, and MNDR, who tackle the songs “Smiling,” “Ablaze,” “Reasons,” “Diagnosis,” “Reckoning” and, “Sandbox Love,” respectively. The EP also includes two previously unreleased live recordings of “Smiling” and “Reasons I Drink” from Morissette’s March 2020 show at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
In a statement, Sophia Kearney and Steven Braines of HE.SHE.THEY Records said of the EP: “Alanis has soundtracked so much of our lives and the new album is dope. So when we were asked to partner on this remix album we each did an excited scream and leapt at the chance to be involved especially as the goal was to be a talent-driven, diverse, trans-inclusive female remix album.”
A portion of the proceeds from Such Pretty Forks in the Mix will be donated to Safe Place International, an organization that helps LGBT refugees in Turkey and Greece.
Morissette released Such Pretty Forks in the Road back in July. The album marked her ninth studio album and first since 2012’s Havoc and Bright Lights.
