Yellowjackets is already revered for its deliciously '90s soundtrack and score, so tasking Canadian alt-rock queen Alanis Morissette with recreating Craig Wedren and Anna Waronker's theme song is a natural fit.

With the release of Season 2, Episode 4 ("Old Wounds") today on Showtime, Morissette has shared her own version of "No Return," the main title theme for the series.

"I love the original version of 'No Return,' It's just a perfect song," the singer-songwriter said in a release. "It was a little daunting to be asked to reinterpret it but I see parallels between Yellowjackets and my perspective while songwriting: the sheer intensity, that going for the jugular with no fear around going for the profane.

"I've strived my entire career to support the empowerment of women and sensitives, and see the world through the female lens, and what's so wonderful about this show is that each character is allowed to be dynamic and complex as opposed to oversimplified, reduced versions of women. I feel honoured to be a part of the legacy of Yellowjackets."

Listen to Morissette's cover in the lyric video below, where you can also watch a clip of the singer speaking about the series and her version of "No Return" at length.
