Brandi Carlile is bringing shedding light on the "Mad World" we're living in.

The singer took to Twitter on Monday (Sept. 14) to share a cover of the Tears for Fears' 1983 hit, part of her Sept. 13 livestream re-imagining of her 2009 album Give Up the Ghost. In the clip, she's seen at a fairy-light lit piano with guitars and her Joni Mitchell tribute show poster behind her. Accompanied by a cellist, she belts the emotional tune.

"It's a mad world, but we're in this together," she says at the end of the cover. "Vote."
