Alanis Morissette is spreading the Christmas cheer with the help of her family and her beautiful cover of the classic John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Christmas song, 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over).'

The Canadian singer-songwriter also dropped a music video to go with the cover, recreating the iconic visuals from the 1971 track.

In the clip, Morissette and her family can be seen tucked into a big, white bed surrounded by flowers, stuffed animals, a guitar, and Lennon and Ono's famous "Bed Peace" poster hanging on their window.

Home videos of Christmastime and clips of family and friends singing in their own homes were collected and incorporated as a whole for Morissette's rendition.

Speaking about her cover, the 46-year-old said: "It is an honour 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."
