Christchurch songbird Hayley Westenra will celebrate the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton's first child by giving New Zealand babies born on the same day a copy of her new album.

Westenra will gift every newborn born between 12am and 11.59pm NZ time on the day of the royal baby's birth a copy of her latest album Hushabye - which features a single penned for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby, expected in July.

The tune, titled Sleep On, was written by composer Paul Mealor, who also composed some of the music for the royal couple's wedding.

Westenra composed the new album for ''parents and babies the world over'', and is ''clinically proven to calm and soothe listeners of all ages'', according to a media statement released yesterday.

Hushabye features songs such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Hush Little Baby and Dream a Little Dream of Me. It will be released in Britain on June 21. 

Parents eligible to claim the album are asked to visit hayleywestenra.com/baby.
