It’s hard to believe that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Jagged Little Pill, the international debut album that catapulted Alanis Morissette into a Grammy-winning superstar.

This year, Morissette is celebrating the milestone with the release of special collector’s and deluxe editions of the album (out Oct. 30) with multiple special features, including tracks recorded years ago that are just seeing the light of day.

Today, Billboard is premiering “Superstar Wonderful Weirdos,” one of those previously unreleased tracks recorded during the making of Jagged Little Pill. Listen to the song below:

With the harmonica solos and the Cindy Crawford reference, “Weirdos” is '90s in the best possible way. When it comes to the lyrical content, Morissette always has something to say, and this introspective, mid-tempo song is no different.

"Having been labeled many things -- weird, intense, intimidating, scary, psychobabbler, and my favorite: 'too much,' I wanted to write a song about having all these qualities within me to contend with, in a world that loves to reduce and categorize," Morissette said.
