Alie describes It's Not The End Of The World as a bittersweet song reflecting the turbulent nature of the time in which it was written.“I think it’s the most positive - and simultaneously - negative song I have ever written. I wanted to face all the fears that the pandemic raised in me. At times it felt like it was the end of the world and I wanted to explore that feeling. I ended up realising that no matter what, at least we have all existed, when the chances of any of us ever existing are infinitesimally small, that at least ‘we were’… and because of that, it’s not the end of the world, even if it is.”
