Under Rug Swept is the fifth studio album and third internationally released album by Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette. Released by Maverick Records in the United States on February 26, Flinch - Alanis Morissette - Under Rug Swept in the United Kingdom a day earlier see in musicit was the first album Morissette had written and produced all on her own.
It debuted at number one on charts in 12 countries, including the United States and Canadaand produced the singles " Hands Clean " and " Precious Illusions ".
Sales, however, did not match those of Morissette's previous two studio albums. Before recording of the album began, when she hadn't written songs or journal entries for nine months,  Morissette went to Toronto not knowing whether she was going to write songs herself or with someone else.
In the first week of her stay she had written seven songs alone, and she described the writing process as "really fast and accelerated". She wrote the music and lyrics at the same time, spending around twenty minutes or less on each song, and recorded the vocals during the writing process, in one or two takes.
Bucks Bon Voyage - Buck Clayton (Trompette) And His French Stars*, Peanuts Holland - Club Session / "kept things from becoming overwhelming" by refraining from cross-connecting her producing, songwriting and performing duties.
Production of the album was delayed when Morissette became involved in disputes with executives at Maverick Records after she testified at U.
Government hearings against artist-unfriendly record contract practices. As she put it, she had to go through lawyers to "have a dialogue with people" and take an extended period of time to "have one Animal Rap (Arturo Gatti Mix) (Clean) - Jedi Mind Tricks - Animal Rap thing figured out". Because she was accustomed to having the producers on her albums act as "the buffer to the outside world" during recording, she found it a challenge to handle the situation on her own.
Despite the relatively low sales of Morissette's previous two albums, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie and MTV Unpluggedcompared to those of her international debut album, Jagged Little PillMaverick Records considered her a strong commercial asset and were concerned that she would leave because of the disputes and release the album on another label.
For a time Morissette was threatening to leave Maverick according to Entertainment Weeklyuntil label founder Madonna intervened and persuaded her to stay. During the making of the album, Morissette wrote 27 songs,  which she eventually narrowed down to My brain would shut off and I just felt like it was information overload I didn't want to overwhelm myself or anyone else in the process of trying to cram them all onto the double CD. It's just a matter of finding the right framework in which to share them with the Flinch - Alanis Morissette - Under Rug Swept.
Morissette has said that during the writing and recording of the album, she noticed a unifying theme emerging of Sepi - Ermy Kullit - Cintaku Abadi desire to mend unions and bridge gaps. Whether it be The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Live At The Albert Hall genders or between human beings, between spirits.
Inevitably, we ended up breaking up, so the record kind of followed the grieving of it, then the proverbial phoenix rising and continuing to grow. The first track, "21 Things I Want in a Lover", features Morissette listing the qualities she looks for in a partner. I do believe that I will be able to get to a point where hearing his name or even running into him or hearing from him won't trigger me as much as it did and still does. It really is my responsibility to distinguish the difference between the two and choose which one I want.
Track seven on the album, "That Particular Time", documents a breakup and "the three distinct chapters in the relationship" Morissette was going through. I try to react as an honourable man Muistokirjoitus - Piski - Gangsterin Heila the vibes of erroneous machos who are damaging the image of my sex.
And at the same time not sacrificing my own life and my thoughts and my own beliefs. Supporting someone in their choices and at the same time being able to express what mine are, even if they differ, is the ultimate healthy, Flinch - Alanis Morissette - Under Rug Swept interaction.
The tenth and penultimate track, " Surrendering ", was the last song Morissette wrote for the album. According to her, it is "about the gratitude that I feel for someone tapping into the courage that it takes to allow themselves to be loved and to drop the defenses and fears And how thrilling it is for me to be able to be let in that kind of way It's a very peaceful, joyful song".
Morissette wrote several political songs such as "Awakening Americans" and "Symptoms" during the making of the album, but she decided not to include such material in spite of an online petition lobbying for their release. Morissette said she doesn't "resonate" with overtly political songs because they are "removed too much" from her personal experiences: "I love sitting up at two in the morning talking religion, but when it comes to my songs, it's just rambling, soapbox, obnoxious", she said.
