Singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette has recorded and released a new cover version of Showtime‘s “Yellowjackets” main title theme song, “No Return.”
The new single debuted in the second season’s fourth episode. It is available now to download and stream globally via Universal Music Canada.
The original “No Return” was written by “Yellowjackets” composers Craig Wedren and Anna Waronker.
“I love the original version of ‘No Return,’ It’s just a perfect song,” Morissette said in a statement. “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.”
She continued, “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 honoured to be a part of the legacy of Yellowjackets.”
“Yellowjackets” is about a girls soccer team stranded in the woods after a plane crash and the events surrounding the survivors years later.
