~ 1995 - Alanis Morrissette scores a #1 with JAGGED LITTLE PILL. Jagged Little Pill is the third studio album, and international debut, by Canadian singer Alanis Morissette, released on June 13, 1995. It was her first album to be released worldwide as her first two albums were released only in her native Canada. Morissette began work on the album after moving from her hometown, Ottawa, to Toronto; she made little progress until she traveled to Los Angeles, where she met producer Glen Ballard.
The lyrics touch upon themes of aggression and unsuccessful relationships, while Ballard introduced a pop sensibility to Morissette’s angst.
Jagged Little Pill topped the charts in thirteen countries; with sales of over 33 million units worldwide, it is one of the best-selling albums of all time and made Morissette the first Canadian to achieve double diamond sales. Jagged Little Pill was nominated for nine Grammy Awards, winning five, including Album of the Year, making Morissette the youngest artist in history to win the honour, a record she held until 2010, when Taylor Swift won this prize with Fearless (2008).
A musical stage production based on the album premiered at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge on May 5, 2018.
