Seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette has today released her cover of ‘War Is Over’ along with an accompanying video.

Since 1995, Alanis Morissette has been one of the most influential singer-songwriter-musicians in contemporary music.

Her deeply expressive music and performances have earned vast critical praise and seven Grammy awards. Morissette’s 1995 debut, JAGGED LITTLE PILL, was followed by nine more eclectic and acclaimed albums.

She has contributed musically to theatrical releases and has acted on the big and small screen. Outside of entertainment, she is an avid supporter of female empowerment, as well as spiritual, psychological and physical wellness. In 2016, Alanis launched Conversation with Alanis Morissette, a monthly podcast that features conversations with a variety of revered authors, doctors, educators, and therapists, covering a wide range of psychosocial topics extending from spirituality to developmentalism to art.

War is Over is a cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s original song Happy Xmas (War Is Over) from 1971. The video was directed by Victor Indrizzo and features at home moments with her family as well as her bandmates’ families. This new track follows the release of Alanis’ 9th studio album, Such Pretty Forks In The Road, which was released earlier this year to rave reviews.

Of the release, Alanis said, “It is an honor to cover this heartwarming song. 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. 🙂 xoxoxo”
