Marking the 10th anniversary of Alanis Morissette’s critically-acclaimed Jagged Little Pill, the GRAMMY® Award-winning artist will pair again with the original album’s producer and co-composer, Glen Ballard, to record an acoustic version of the album in its entirety. In a unique agreement between Starbucks Hear Music(TM) and Maverick Records, the album will be sold exclusively in Starbucks company-operated stores in North America beginning June 13, 2005—10 years to the date of the original recording’s release—and throughout the six weeks of Morissette’s first-ever acoustic tour, the “Diamond Wink Tour.”

After the six-week exclusive window has passed, the album will also be available broadly at multiple retail locations beyond Starbucks.
“I was in survival mode when Jagged Little Pill came out,” says Alanis Morissette. “I am able now, with a little distance, to appreciate it and have some objectivity. I love this record and am warmed by the thought of tipping my hat to it 10 years later.”
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Alanis Morissette and Maverick on this project, and to be the exclusive retailer for the acoustic version of Jagged Little Pill’s initial release,” says Ken Lombard, president, Starbucks Entertainment. “We have a strong commitment to providing our customers with convenient ways to discover and acquire great music and are delighted that Alanis and Maverick identified the Starbucks Experience as the perfect setting to introduce millions of music fans to this intimate acoustic recording and tour.”
