Alanis Morissette has announced that she'll begin working on a new album — set to be her tenth studio LP — at the beginning of 2024. 

The untitled project will be her first since 2022's the storm before the calm

She revealed to Variety today that she'll release a single closer to the holidays before getting started on the new project. 

"I'll likely be starting to write a new record in 2024 so I'm super psyched about that," she said. "And then this holiday season, we're putting out a new song. Over the last four years, I've put a new song out every holiday time, so this year will be no different. And I just look forward to continuing that, it's really nostalgic for me."

Although the holiday songs she's referring to have mostly been covers — she did John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" in 2020 and "Little Drummer Boy" in 2022 — one of her more popular recent originals, "Reasons I Drink," was also a holiday release. 

Morissette also took the opportunity to tip her hat to her Canadian heritage and simultaneously jab at Americans during the interview. When asked about the benefits her kids have received from having a rockstar for a mom, she talked about all the travelling they'd done while she was on tour. 

"The idea of the planet being what we're curious about, and different cultures and traditions and religions, we're almost like kids in candy stores, and it's really been important to me my whole life," she said. "It's kind of a Canadian perspective, really. To just think about the planet as a whole as opposed to being America-centric."

Hopefully, a new album means more touring to come from Morissette, who's been filling the gap by performing on talk show sets and guest stages around the world.
