Alanis Morissette Covering Willie Nelson and Julio Iglesias Hit 'To All the Girls I've Loved Before'

"It's less cheeky and it's more awed," Morissette tells Spinner of the track. "It's very funny and cool and unusual and sweet."
The song -- which will be released as a single since Morissette has yet to start working on a new album -- also marks a departure for her, as she rarely collaborates with other big name artists. "I don't know why that is. I'm such a big fan of people," she says. "Maybe it's because I'm so intimidated, but I'm growing up a little bit so I think I'll have more courage to collaborate in the future for sure."
So who is on her wish list of people to work with? "I love every rap artist on the planet, so I have to go through the list of all my favorites," Morissette says. "Even with the Fergie song -- it wasn't like I woke up one day and consciously thought, 'Wow, I really want to cover a Black Eyed Peas song.' It's more in conversation [that it] comes up."
On top of a rap collaboration, Morissette says she'd really love to cover another duet. Her choice of songs is surprising, to say the least. "My favorite duet is any song from 'Grease.' I'm not joking," she says "Anything with Sandy and Danny."
