Morissette, who is the mother of a toddler, follows other celebrity moms that have raised their voices on the Mommalogues including Candace Cameron Bure, Cindy Crawford and Mayim Bialik. Morissette is married to Mario 'Souleye' Treadway. The couple's son, Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway, was born on Christmas Day in 2010.
Havoc and Bright Lights
Morissette's eighth studio album, entitled Havoc and Bright Lights, will be released in the U.S. on August 28.
Morissette began writing the songs on Havoc and Bright Lights shortly after giving birth to Ever. “Once my son was born, I immediately felt this surge of ‘I have to write this record,’” Morissette says. “Of course the timing couldn’t have been worse. Post-partum is not the time to be doing anything other than post-partum-ing. Because I'm an attachment parent, I wanted to be near him 24/7.”
She turned the first floor of her home into a makeshift studio. “It was this unusual but perfect blend of mom-hood and artist,” she says. “It was a challenge to do both at the same time, but I had no other option. I was called to show up 100 percent for both, so this was the only way to do it. I developed a deep affinity and gratitude for coffee and falling asleep sitting up, for the first time in my life,” she says with a laugh.
