The title of this article may very well have left you confused. So allow us to explain.

Baby Luca Yupanqui's debut album, Sounds of the Unborn, is set to be released this April.

According to NME, the album was recorded while she was still in her mother's womb using biosonic MIDI technology which translated her movements into sound. 

Luca is the child of musicians Elizabeth Hart and Iván Diaz Mathé.

"It is human nature to wonder what life is like inside another human being's consciousness. How does it feel? What does it sound like? All these questions became stronger and more important to Elizabeth and Iván while they were waiting for Luca to come into the world," explains a press release quoted by the publication.

"At a certain point the questions turned into, What would she say if she could speak? How would she react to the outer world? And ultimately, What kind of music would she play if she was able to? This album is an attempt to answer those questions."

The first track off the album is titled V4.3 pt.2 and includes video footage recorded by Elizabeth and Iván.
