Emily Hackett Releases Cover of John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”

Fans will be happy to know that I Prevail have not slowed down since the release of last year's EP, Heart Vs. Mind or their massive cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space." Instead, the band is charging full force into the future with their new album, Lifelines out on October 21st. On top of that, the band is in the midst of a headlining tour with My Enemies & I and Bad Seed Rising and will be hitting the road later this year with Pierce The Veil and Neck Deep! Needless to say, there are no signs of stopping for I Prevail, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Emily Hackett is celebrating the holidays with her cover of John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)“.

Recording this song has always been on my bucket list,” Emily explains. “The timing seemed so appropriate with everything going on in the world.” 

The lyric video was created by Emily herself using clips of her own home movies around the holidays. The artwork, designed by Bo Rinehart of Needtobreathe, was inspired by Lennon’s trademark doodles. “I thought nodding to that would be the best way to represent him and keep the focus on the message of the song,” Emily shared with Taste of Country

mily recently released her debut EP, By The Sun, on September 21st. “[By The Sun] are the songs that take full and honest ownership of who I am and how you’d meet me on the street,” said Emily in a recent interview with Ladygunn Magazine. “They all encourage authenticity and staying true to yourself and what made you, including the times you have to laugh at yourself a bit.”
