Ani DiFranco talks about making 'baby inspired' music
In a recent interview, singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco revealed that her upcoming 2008 album — the first since giving birth to daughter Petah Lucia, 7-months on Monday — will definitely be ‘baby inspired.’ Ani is currently in the studio recording tracks, but like most new moms, she admits that she finds herself working in fits and spurts — a phenomenon she calls ‘baby time.’
Another relatively new thing for Ani, who has always been outspoken on social issues, is an emphasis on going green. According to Ani, the birth of Petah made working to save the environment take on new importance in her home, which she shares with partner Mike Napolitano.
Petah is the first child for Ani and Mike.
