Mike Bern explores grief from the other side in his new single ‘New World’.  Written from the perspective of a mother who has died and misses her still-living daughter, inspired by the death in his own family.  The song is dedicated to his adopted daughter whose biological mother passed in a car crash.  This is the first single from the indigenous singer-songwriter’s new album ‘Ancestors’. Bern describes this inspiration: “There are times when my daughter says she sees her mom,” he says. “For instance, while in Montreal, she said she had seen her mom in the clouds waving to her. They both live in new worlds, but somehow, they still see each other and communicate.”
