Published Nov 27, 2020Since not even a pandemic can stop Christmas music, Alanis Morissette is adding to the increasingly long list of 2020 festive offerings. Today she's shared a cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's classic "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)."
The cover sticks pretty close to the original, and Morissette has even given the song some cover art that finds the artist in bed with her family in a very Lennon-Ono fashion. The cover's accompanying clip also features the families of both Morissette and her bandmates.
"It is an honour to cover this heartwarming song," Morissette said in a statement. "The lyrics feel more pertinent than ever and this year has been a year of great resilience and adapting and feeling all the feelings. May this song serve as a big hug to you and your sweet families and friends. Everything is going to be okay in the end, and if it's not okay, it's not the end."
