Alanis Morissette addresses her struggles with alcoholism in a new music video.
The 45-year-old singer shared a video Thursday for the single “Reasons I Drink.” The video shows four versions of Morissette attending an AA-like meeting for addicts. Morissette shares the reasons behind her drinking as different scenes from her life are shown.
In a 2016 column for The Guardian, Morissette described alcohol as a “secondary addiction” to her addictions to “love, food and work.” She said at the time that she had been in recovery for “many years.”
“Reasons I Drink” appears on Morissette’s forthcoming album, Such Pretty Forks in the Road, slated for release May 1st. Morissette released a new single from the album, “Smiling,” last week.
To promote Such Pretty Forks in the Road, as well as commemorate Jagged Little Pill’s 25th anniversary, Morissette will head out on a world tour this year, kicking off her North American run on June 2nd in Portland, Oregon. The tour will run through July 25th with a final sold-out show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Liz Phair and Garbage will be joining her on the road as opening acts on most dates.
