Written during self-isolation, Whack dedicated the song “to all those on lockdown” during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In the song, Whack sings about the struggles of self-isolation over a stripped-down, acoustic version of Morissette’s classic 1996 track.
Whack sings lines such as: “Sick of being stuck in the house/ I wanna go out now” and “Now is the time I’ve been losing my mind/ I wanna see what’s going on outside.”

Both festivals join the scores of gigs, tours and events pulled in the wake of the outbreak of coronavirus – with this week seeing Isle Of Wight and Download Festival 2020 cancelled following the likes of Glastonbury and South By South West.
Yesterday (March 28), Primavera festival also announced its postponement until August of this year.
Reviewing Whack’s show in New York last year, NME said: “With the dark beats pulsating beneath her, she puts all her energy into unleashing her flow once more, pacing the circular stage as she does so. As she told us herself on ‘Whack World’ highlight ‘Hungry Hippo’, Tierra Whack is “not your average girl.”
“Where legions of artists take themselves oh-so-seriously, she does the opposite and ends up coming out on top; a breath of fresh air and burst of vibrancy that’s fun, vital, and celebratory.”
