‘Peppa Pig’ Set to Jump into Music with First Album
Entertainment One will release new, original music based on its “Peppa Pig” TV property next month.
My First Album will be the first album for the “Peppa” property when it launched in English-speaking territories in July. A compilation of 16 newly-recorded music, My First Album includes extended versions of previously-released songs from the series.
Songs on the album are composed by Julian Nott, with additional arrangements by Paul Moessl. Harley Bird, the voice of Peppa Pig will also be featured on several tracks from the album.
“We’re very excited to be releasing an official Peppa Pig music album for the first time in the brand’s 15-year history,” says Rebecca Harvey, executive vice president global brand management, family and brands, eOne. “Music has always been central to the appeal of the show around the world, so we’re delighted to share these new musical arrangements with Peppa’s many fans during the brand’s anniversary year. We hope it will become the perfect soundtrack for families to enjoy at home, on the go and at party celebrations.”
“Peppa Pig’s” My First Album follows on from the launch of “PJ Masks” album Heroes Forever in May, which generated more than 150,000 streams globally in its first week.
