Alanis Morrisette and Ever

Alanis Morrisette "can't remember" a lot of recording her new album because she made the record soon after giving birth to her son

Alanis Morrisette "can't remember" a lot of recording her new album.

The 'Ironic' hitmaker - who became a mother for the first time in December 2010 when son Ever Imre was born - worked on 'Havoc And Bright Lights' while she was still nursing her baby and found it fun to combine both, though she has few memories of the period.

She said: "To be honest I wrote it post-partum the whole few months after my son was born, so I barely remember the process.

"It was in our home, and we built a makeshift studio in what is now the playroom because I'm an attachment parent, so I wanted to be able to breastfeed.

"So it was literally in and out of this room, writing with Guy Sigsworth, recording, being a mom, back and forth in my house. I barely remember it and I wouldn't say I was letting loose, but I was having fun."

The 37-year-old singer says the album marks a shift in attitude from her because she no longer feels the need to apologise for any part of her personality.

She told Rolling Stone: "There is a lack of apology for the kind of person I am. I used to have some shame around my Ph.D, psychological part and shame about being spiritual, or shame about being emotional or sensitive.

"And what I know now, or what I feel now, is that I don't have shame for those parts. It might p**s people off or rub them the wrong way or have them roll their eyes. I don't care."
