11 April 2019 (Toronto, ON) – Multi-platinum, award-winning singer/songwriter, best-selling author, radio host, actor, activist, and social media star Jann Arden today releases “Mother Mine.” “Mother Mine” is the first original song from CTV’s new, critically acclaimed, original comedy series “JANN,” in which Jann Arden plays a fictionalized, self-deprecating version of herself. The single is now available for download and streaming on all digital platforms.
Written and performed in collaboration with actress Zoie Palmer Jann Arden’s on-screen sister in the series, the single is a stripped down, slow song whose lyrics play tribute to the unconditional love of their mother and the universal power of maternal affection.
In Episode 4 of “JANN” titled “Major Party Foul,” which aired last night (April 10) on CTV, Jann (Jann Arden) learns her sister Max (Zoie Palmer) is planning a 75th birthday party for their mom Nora (Deborah Grover) and insists on taking over the party planning. She even blackmails an old friend into performing at the party – guest star Rick Mercer. The party goes well until conflicts between Jann and Max come to a head, nearly ruining the night and deeply upsetting Nora. The sisters come together to set things right and salvage their mother’s celebration by performing “Mother Mine.” The episode is available on demand on CTV.ca and the CTV app, as well as on Crave.

“Having the opportunity to write and sing this song with Zoie Palmer, my onscreen sister, really made this a spectacular experience. It brought so much realism and heart to the entire episode. Losing a loved one to Dementia is a long, hard, unknowable road. This song is a salute to mom’s everywhere,” said Jann Arden.
“Mother Mine” is the first original song from the critically acclaimed series JANN, which airs at a special day and time next Thursday, April 18 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV.ca and the CTV app. A second original track will be featured in the season finale of JANN airing Wednesday, April 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV.ca and the CTV app. Additional details to be announced at a later date.
