Emily Hackett’s new cover is the perfect addition to any Christmas playlist! The Nashville-based country pop singer recorded a cover of John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” and we know you’ll have it on repeat! “Recording this song has always been on my bucket list and the timing of it just seemed so appropriate with everything going on in the world this year,” Emily said of the cover.
The cover showcases Emily’s voice perfectly, and the artwork, designed by Bo Rinehart of Needtobreathe, is special in its own right. “When I first started thinking about the artwork for this single, I knew I wanted something that felt real and raw and would have gotten a John Lennon stamp of approval,” Emily stated about the concept. “Both of us being Beatles fans, Bo and I were very familiar with 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.”
