In response to the cover, Tegan and Sara sent love to Williams and urged their fans to watch the full video, “especially if you haven’t had your daily ‘lay in the fetal position and cry moment'”.

Williams has been spending her time in isolation performing a number of covers and sharing them on her social media. Recently, Williams has covered Phoebe Bridgers’ ‘Smoke Signals’ and ‘Things She Said’ by Kent.

Earlier this month, Williams released the song ‘My Friend’ in the lead-up to the second part of her debut solo project, ‘Petals For Armor’, set for release on May 8 via Atlantic.

The single is the follow-up to ‘Over Yet’ and ‘Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris’. The singer also shared a choreographed workout video for ‘Over Yet’ for fans who are social distancing at home.

The first half of ‘Petals for Armor’ was released on January 22 and included singles ‘Simmer’, ‘Leave It Alone’ and ‘Cinnamon’.

Williams currently has a string of European, UK and North American tour dates locked in for May and June. It is unconfirmed whether these dates will be postponed in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

In March, Williams reiterated her stance on no longer performing ‘Misery Business’ at Paramore concerts due to its “anti-feminist” lyrics, specifically the line: “Once a whore, you’re nothing more, I’m sorry that’ll never change.” The singer originally said she would no longer perform the track in 2018.
