Hushabye’ comprises a careful selection of music to calm and soothe both children and adults alike.

New Zealand superstar-soprano Hayley Westenra and her record label ABC for Kids through Universal Music are planning to give away a free copy of her new album ‘Hushabye’ to every child born in Australia on the same day as the Royal Baby. Hayley – who has sold over four million albums in her career and holds the accolade of the fastest selling debut classical album of all time– is known for her passion for children, and was one of the youngest ever ambassadors for UNICEF.

Hayley has dedicated ‘Hushabye’ to all new parents and babies the world over, and it contains the new song, Sleep On, which has been specially written for the Royal Baby by the “nation’s favourite living composer” Paul Mealor, with the lyrics provided by world renowned composer Brendan Graham (lyricist for You Raise Me Up). Their Royal Highnesses The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge personally chose Mealor’s music for their wedding in 2011, so ‘Hushabye’ is the perfect accompanying gift to celebrate the Royal Couple’s new arrival.

Embraced by Hayley’s beautiful tones, ‘Hushabye’ will contain a special selection of songs, clinically proven to calm and soothe listeners of all ages. Her voice is gently complimented by a carefully considered orchestration, with acoustic guitar, piano, flute and warm strings, creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Listeners can expect bedtime favourites such as Hushabye Mountain and Twinkle Twinkle, alongside timeless classics that reach beyond the realm of lullabies, like Dream A Little Dream of Me and All Through The Night.
