    This was one of my favorite parts of her tour a few years back… so glad it’s recorded (properly)

  • abbysee

    Wow..that transition into Use Somebody knocked me out! Queen Kelly indeed!

  • Guilherme Santos

    This is great! Actually, she could record most of the covers she did on tour. Most of them are amazing.

  • Ricky Rob

    That break on her voice at 3:23 kills me EVERY time! Amazing!!!

  • Kariann Hart

    Kelly has such a terrific voice!

  • Willis White

    This is my favorite cover from Kelly. Finally an official recording!Still holding on to my bootlegs tho. Those are great too.

  • hayes

    No way! I liked this when she did it on tour.

  • Jenna

    I always loved this mash-up! I think her vocals when she did it on the AIEW tour were better though.

  • CB40

    You have no idea the emotions this just poured out of me. Alanis was there for me when I felt like a voiceless teenager and she’s the reason I became a writer, and Kelly is my inspiration now.

    Wow, just amazing.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Just lovely. Does anyone know the track list for the Smokestack bonus CD? I’ve been wanting a studio version of Kelly’s rendition of “I Know He Won’t”.

  • Nasstopher

    The track list:
    1- I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You) by Aretha Franklin.
    2- Your Cheatin’ Heart by Hank Williams.
    3- Walkin’ After Midnight by Patsy Cline.
    4- That I Would Be Good/Use Somebody by Alanis Morissette/Kings of Leon.
    5- Lies by The Black Keys.

    Her phrasing… just WOW! She has a lovely instrument, true. But what knocks me out is how she uses it. This is what raises her head and shoulders over 99% of the reality show contestants – who by and large, have great voices.

    She knows how to use her instrument to create emotion in her listeners. That is a very unique gift.

  • Eric Mitchell

    It is good but I have an emotional connection to Alanis’ original so I can’t love this. Especially Alanis’ acoustic version.  But regardless Kelly is amazing.

  • heartly

    This song was electric when she did in concert during the All I Ever Wanted tour.  There’s a little bit of that magic missing in this studio version, but I think that’s to be expected just because of the environment.  I hope they continue with these bonus EP’s to go along with her album releases because they are really good and fun treats for the fans.  

    Both Smoakstack EPs were recorded back in 2010 as live studio recordings done with a (her) live band.

    The rest of the EP has been posted on Youtube for preview and it is amazing <3
