The song is heard over a series of scenes of parents interacting with their children, showing different ways iPhones can be used to help raise a family.

Doiron, who is a mother of four, recorded Life of Dreams on her 2009 album I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day.

In 2007, an Apple ad using Feist's 1234 single helped push the Amherst, N.S., single to international fame and propelled her to a hit album.

Doiron began her musical career in 1990 in Moncton with the group, Eric's Trip. She has released 10 albums on her own, including the 1999 Juno-winner, Julie Doiron and the Wooden Stars.

Doiron is scheduled to appear at Sackville's annual SappyFest, which she co-founded, from Aug. 1 to 3.
