    Brandi Carlile is celebrating Mother’s Day early with a new video for “The Mother.”

    The intimate clip, which was shot by a crew made up entirely of women, follows a diverse group of mothers as they carry out their daily tasks. It captures the beauty of maternal love as expressed through the early breakfasts before school and sleepless late nights. “She broke a thousand heirlooms I was never meant to keep / She filled my life with color, canceled plans, and trashed my car / But none of that was ever who we are,” Carlile sings.

    “The Mother” is a cut from Carlile’s Grammy-winning album, By the Way, I Forgive You. She previously released a visual for the record’s closing track, “Party of One,” starring Elizabeth Moss.
