Alanis Morissette resolves her dispute with Madonna's label. The singer's next album should hit stores this fall.

Alanis Morissette junkies, prepare to renew your infatuation: The singer's publicist tells that her yet untitled new album, which was postponed from a June 12 release to the end of the year, will now appear in the fall -- a few months earlier than expected. What's more, the 27-year-old Morissette is currently showcasing songs from this follow-up to 1998's ''Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie'' on a 21-city European tour that kicked off earlier this month.

The album had been in limbo because Morissette was embroiled in a contract dispute with her label, Maverick -- Madonna's small Warner Bros. imprint -- which signed her in 1994, shortly before she released her first rock smash ''Jagged Little Pill.'' A source close to the singer says Maverick was reluctant to put out a new release while Morissette -- who is said to have been considering competing offers of $5 million per record -- was threatening to leave the label.

Neither Maverick nor Morissette's rep at MSO would comment on the negotiations. But a statement issued by Madonna's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, last week confirmed reports that the Material Mom personally met with Morissette to hash out the financial details of her contract. 'There were some issues regarding Alanis and her relationship with Maverick,'' said Rosenberg. ''But everyone, including Madonna, is thrilled everything has been worked out.'' (Entertainment Weekly)
