Time for a dance party for the whole family — for real life!
The new Bluey album, Bluey: Dance Mode, dropped today just in time for some fun with the kids this weekend. Joff Bush, lead composer for the TV series, worked with a crew of musicians, co-writers, and collaborators to bring fans 17 new recordings inspired by songs from all three seasons of the animated show.
The first half of the album includes fun and silly songs like “Cat Squad,” “Chattermax,” and “Lollipop Yum Yum Yum,” while the second half features sentimental tunes such as “Rain (Boldly in the Pretend”), “The Gnome Song,” “Rainbow,” and “It Was Yesterday.” Kids can dance along to the whistles and banjos highlighted in “Grandad,” as well as the album’s upbeat, EDM-style title track, “Dance Mode.”
There are also official music videos for “Dance Mode,” “Rain (Boldly in the Pretend”), and “Cat Squad,” which offer a behind-the-scenes look at the music team.
The album is available now on CD, orange vinyl, and streaming services worldwide. In celebration of Record Store Day (RSD), Bluey: Dance Mode will be exclusively available on a zoetrope vinyl picture disc in select participating RSD stores on Saturday, April 22. The playful zoetrope effect on side A displays the Bluey and family each individually dancing along.
