Alanis Morissette has premiered the music video for “Guardian,” the lead single from her first album in four years, Havoc And Bright Lights, out August 28. Filmed in Berlin, the clip was inspired by Wim Wenders’ 1987 film, Wings Of Desire.
“It is the 25th anniversary of the film having been released,” Morissette tells Spinner. “The full-circle poetry of my having written ‘Uninvited’ for its remake [1998's City Of Angels], 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.”
Long-windedness aside, who wouldn’t mind having Alanis as their guardian angel, watching down on them?
