Alanis Morrissette commented that there is "strength in numbers with these powerhouse artists" before the CMT Music Awards earlier this month.

Alanis Morrissette commented that there is "strength in numbers with these powerhouse artists" alongside a picture of herself with Ingrid Andress, Lainey Wilson, Madeline Edwards and Morgan Wade, who joined her to perform her alt-rock smash "You Oughta Know" on the CMT Music Awards earlier this month.

Now fans who missed the performance on the show can enjoy a similar vocal event on Spotify. Today Spotify released a studio version of the song featuring the same vocalists.

"Alanis is an iconic songwriter and badass inspiration to women everywhere," Wade said in a statement. 

"It's such a special experience that I got to sing with her during this performance with Madeline, Ingrid, & Lainey. I am thrilled this moment is now going to live a new life as a Spotify Single."

Edwards said it was a "complete honor" that Leslie Fram and CMT asked her to "be a part of this epic performance."

"I still can't believe it really happened," she said. "I grew up performing this song in my sets, and to now have this being released as a single with Spotify is really something unimaginable. Working with Ingrid, Morgan and Lainey was just an added bonus."

Wilson said the experience of singing with the Morrissette on the show took her straight back to her childhood.

"I remember my friend jumping on the bed to the song that we're doing, and she knew every word.," Wilson said. "And I was like, 'Who is this?' And, I learned all the words, too. I was listening to Shania Twain, and I was listening to The Chicks and stuff like that, but she introduced me to Alanis."

CMT's Fram curated the performance on the 2023 CMT Music Awards to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the "CMT Next Women of Country" (NWOC) franchise, the brand's long-running effort to support and promote developing female talent. Andress (2019), Wilson (2019), Edwards (2022) and Wade (2022) are all CMT Next Women of Country.

"Performing on the CMT Awards with this exceptionally talented group of artists to celebrate the 10th anniversary of CMT's Next Women of Country program was truly a career highlight," Andress said. "I've always looked up to Alanis for the way she's masterfully navigated a male-dominated industry by always speaking her mind and never sacrificing her own sound or vision. We all had so much fun performing this song together and are so excited to share it with the world all over again as a Spotify single."

Morrissette said it was an honor to gather with the women and "make a soulful noise together."
