About the artwork

The "Give the Gift" design was created by the illustrious Jake McBride at Animind Studio. We wanted something fun and inspiring that reflected the joyous spirit of the song, so we chose the last line of the chorus: "Give the gift that only you were born to give."

Here’s Jake’s Artist Statement:

"As an animator who specialises in music videos, it’s integral that the music inspires me. Bridging the gap between sound and visuals is where I have found my greatest sense of fulfilment; and this project reminded me of that.

"With a roster of songs from his heart, I’ve felt compelled to create work reflective of Zo’s goals and my own. A strong working relationship, illustrating the merits of collaboration, has helped us in creating videos and designs we shall cherish for life."

I couldn’t see anything neither hear a single sound, everything was so quiet and so dark. But gradually I started to hear a breath, a whisper. And I think for the first time in my life I heard the stars sing."

About the song

"Welcome! Welcome!" is a song of joy & celebration for new life, no matter what comes our way.

I wrote this song before I became a father.

Now that I am, it means even more to me.

Our planet is in crisis.

The future is uncertain.

Quite a time to be alive —

— and to bring new life into the world.

To me, declaring joy in the face of this uncertainty is a courageous and beautifully defiant act.

Whether you’re a parent, or you have a little one in your life, or you just want to live a fulfilled life, I hope this song helps you tap into that sense of joy, hope, wide-eyed wonder, and resilience.
