"This video is a tip of the hat to Wim Wenders' 'Wings of Desire,'" Morissette tells Spinner. "It is the 25th anniversary of the film having been released. The full-circle poetry of my having written 'Uninvited' for its remake, combined with my love of the original movie, combined with my love of Germany, having lived there for three years as a child, combined most importantly with how this video is such a visual extension of the song 'Guardian,' which is so close to my heart."
Although she has more than two decades of music under her belt, Morissette recently added a new job to her resume: Parent. "Guardian" reflects how she has changed since giving birth to son Ever in 2010.
"I think it really shows how the parent/guardian-angel roles are linked," Morissette says. "How, ultimately, a powerful inner parent calls upon spirit to guide her or his choices on the loved one's behalf, whether it is for a child, a friend, or an inner child. This love and this grace is available to everyone."
"Guardian" is the first single off Alanis Morissette's upcoming album Havoc and Bright Lights, available for pre-order on iTunes on July 31.
