Showtime mystery/thriller series Yellowjackets is in the middle of its second season, which is offering up a few answers, not to mention new questions, new characters and more '90s nostalgia. The series today shared a new version of Craig Wedren & Anna Waronker's theme song, "No Return," sung by alt rock queen Alanis Morissette. It's the same backing music as the original but now Morissette's distinctive pipes.
“I love the original version of ‘No Return,’ It’s just a perfect song,” said Morissette in a behind-the-scenes video about the song. “It was a little daunting to be asked to reinterpret it, but I see parallels between Yellowjackets and my perspective while songwriting: the sheer intensity, that going for the jugular with no fear around going for the profane. I’ve strived my entire career to support the empowerment of women and sensitives, and see the world through the female lens, and what’s so wonderful about this show is that each character is allowed to be dynamic and complex as opposed to oversimplified, reduced versions of women. I feel honored to be a part of the legacy of Yellowjackets."
Alanis cover appears in this week's episode of Yellowjackets but you can listen, spoiler-free, and watch that behind-the-scenes video, below.
You can catch Alanis on tour this summer, including Boston Calling, and a NJ show at Prudential Center on June 22 with Aimee Mann. All dates are listed below.
Earlier in Yellowjackets Season 2, Florence + The Machine covered No Doubt's "Just a Girl."
