This poster is inspired by Walter Stern's (who had shot to fame after directing the video for Verve's 'Bittersweet Symphony') iconic video featuring a baby singing in the womb.

Band member Andrew Vowles originally sent the demo to Madonna as he wanted her to record the vocals for the song. However, the two other band members Robert Del Naja and Grantley Marshall wanted Liz Fraser of the Cocteau Twins to record the vocals, feeling her style more suited the feel of the song. Madonna was very keen to record the vocals, and was apparently hugely disappointed when the vote went in Fraser's favour.

While recording the song in 1997, Fraser found out that her once-close friend, Jeff Buckley, had drowned and later said that, to her, 'the song's kind of about him – that's how it feels to me anyway.'

Printed on 200gsm silk paper this Teardrop print is available in three sizes and comes ready for framing.
