As part of the multi-year deal, beloved music recordings from the television series "Sesame Street" are now available on digital streaming and download platforms and new compilation titles are available on vinyl and CD.

The imprint will release never-before-heard music from both current and previous seasons of the show, including features by celebrity guests. New selections will be branded around educational topics, current events and upcoming themes from the show and will also include new cover songs and parodies from outside of the series.

The new titles that will include these songs will roll out in early 2019. “'Sesame Street' and music have had a long-standing harmony that began nearly 50 years ago,” says Kevin Gore, president, arts music, Warner Music Group. “I’m thrilled this partnership with Sesame Workshop is our first initiative for Arts Music in the kids’ music space. I watched the first episode, owned their first album, shared this music with my kids, and I can’t think of a better brand or mission as our foundation in this space.”

The partnership marks the first time in 20 years that new “Sesame Street” music will be available on a consistent schedule. Select titles have been released since September, and a holiday compilation is set to debut this month.
