Sara Bareilles attends the 72nd Annual Tony Awards on June 10, 2018 in New York City. 

Mother's Day is just a few days away, and Sara Bareilles is honoring her mom and mothers around the world with a brand new single, "Shiny."

The heartfelt tune encourages moms to see how special they are and what an important role they have in their child's lives. "I see what she can’t see/Her light only ever landing on me/But there’s a glimmer in her brown eyes/The ones she gave to me/So I know we can both be shiny," she croons in the chorus.

Bareilles took to Instagram to shout out her own mom with a montage of photos to the tune of her new single, along with the touching message, "Mom. She is so many things. Hilarious. Kind. Generous. Talented. Loyal. Intelligent. Silly. Gentle. Patient. And sometimes she spends so much time and energy letting other people shine she forgets how shiny she is. Solid Gold, baby. I love you mom."

"Shiny" comes just one month after the release of the songstress' latest album Amidst the Chaos. Listen to the new single below.
