Brian Wilson Back In Studio

Brian Wilson has quietly signed a deal with Irving Azoff's Revolution Records and is at work on a new solo album, tentatively due in the spring.

Joe Thomas, who co-produced the 1996 Beach Boys tribute album Stars & Stripes, is producing the album at Wilson's home studio, located 65 miles west of Chicago. Azoff says Wilson's new material "sounds unbelievable." Thomas is also enthused: "Brian is sounding better than ever" and is handling all of the lead and background vocals on the album himself. So far, 18-20 tracks have been recorded, Thomas says.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
