On November 22nd, British singer-songwriter James McCartney will release The Complete EP Collection, a two-disc set of his two EPs, Available Light and Close at Hand, as well as five previously unreleased original bonus tracks and two covers.

The first track off the collection is the light and cheerful "Angel," which McCartney explains was inspired by "sitting on the top of the stairs in my house in North London trying to write about when I will first meet my true love." The track has strong pop hooks and mandolins, which is one of the many instruments McCartney played on this collection of EPs.

The Complete EP Collection will be in stores on November 22nd, but you can stream "Angel" for free here.

“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."
