“It is an honour to cover this heartwarming song,” Alanis says. “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 OK in the end, and if it’s not OK, it’s not the end.”

Fans were totally in love with the cover. “A very big thank you @Alanis for this fun updated John Lennon classic. War is Over,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

Alanis, who released her ninth studio album, “Such Pretty Forks in the Road”, in July, will also perform on the Tina Fey-hosted “One Night Only: The Best of Broadway” special on NBC next week (December 4).
