Singer-songwriter Annie Bacon has a charming new music video to share which she describes as “an ode to the strangeness of growing a human and being its mother.” Suitably entitled “The Baby Suite,” the song features gorgeous piano accompaniment, a smooth, jazzy saxophone and, of course, Bacon’s soothing vocal delivery and heartfelt lyrics.

Written while the songstress was 18 weeks pregnant, the tune is all about the utterly strange and wholly incredible experience of becoming a mother, a feeling she calls both “intensely personal” and intrinsically “universal.” This is why the video itself features a wide range of mothers and their children, both emphasizing the inclusive nature of the song as well as displaying a sense of wonder in an experience that is sometimes overlooked or taken for granted by society. After all, this is the beginning of human life, and Bacon movingly captures all the excitement, confusion, and indescribable ecstasy that goes along with it.

You can catch Annie Bacon live at City Winery Napa next Tuesday night.
