Alanis Morissette has announced plans to release an album to help people to meditate.
Co-written by Darkside’s Dave Harrington, The Storm Before The Calm will show fans 11 different meditations. This album will arrive on June 17.
Along with being available on streaming platforms, the album will also be released via the mental health app Calm. The app can be purchased on android and iPhone.
The Hand In My Pocket singer has already released the album’s opening track, Safety – Empath In Paradise, which lasts for 11 minutes. You can also hear it below.
Morissette herself is a huge fan of meditation.
“Meditating rests my interior”, she said. “to the point where I can have access to ideas and visions and inspirations – I can hear my own capital-S Self. Music, for me, is like a portal in a way, an invitation into a state of being that I’m not normally in. Making the record kept me super connected and accountable during Covid, when I felt like I was just going to disappear and float away”.
