The Arts Music division of Warner Music Group and the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, Sesame Workshop, have partnered to re-launch Sesame Street Records in the US and Canada.
The multi-year deal has resulted in the Sesame Street catalog of recordings becoming available across digital streaming services and download platforms with plans to release new compilation titles on CD and vinyl in the near future.
As per the partnership announcement:
“Arts Music’s plans for the revitalized imprint include: never-before-released music from current and past seasons of Sesame Street, including appearances by pop stars and other notable celebrities; new thematic compilations aligned with educational topics featured in current and upcoming seasons of Sesame Street; and new cover songs and parodies that originate outside of the TV show. New titles featuring these songs will debut in early 2019.
The partnership marks the first time in more than twenty years that new music from Sesame Street will be made available to the public under a consistent schedule of releases. The label will curate the extensive catalog into new thematic CD, vinyl, download and streaming series for an entirely new generation of listeners.”
No titles have been listed for sale on vinyl yet. Stay tuned, we at vinyl reviews will let you know when updates are available.
