Eris Drew has shared a remix of Alanis Morissette’s ‘Reckoning’, making a surprising appearance on Morissette’s ‘Such Pretty Forks In The Mix Alanis’ EP.
From the Canadian artist's ninth studio album released in July, ‘Such Pretty Forks In The Road’, the remix EP also includes re-imagined tracks from MNDR, MUNA, and Girlpool.
Drew’s version of ‘Reckoning’ is a fierce seven-minute-long cut with tangles of Morissette’s ghostly vocals. Speaking in a tweet, Drew said: “It was wild to wake-up a few months ago to an email asking me to remix a powerful song by Alanis Morissette. My version is a windy 152 BPM interpretation, which I hope honors the intensity of the original song.”
Morissette described the project as: “A handful of remixes by an incredible group of womxn + a couple acoustic songs from my show earlier this year at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.”
According to an article in Rolling Stone, a portion of the proceeds from ‘Such Pretty Forks in the Mix’ will be donated to Safe Place International, an organization that helps LGBTQ+ refugees in Turkey and Greece.
