Best Coast, the breezy, California-obsessed duo of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno have just announced a new album. And this time it’s gonna be quite a departure in a way. The new album is titled Best Kids and will be arriving in just a few weeks on June 22. The new album will be a full-on children’s album. Across 11 tracks, the band will be performing fuzzed out guitar rock originals and covers of classics for hip parents to play for their hip kids. It will be following up the band’s last LP, 2015’s California Nights.
Ahead of its release, Bethany Cosentino shared a little statement about its intention:
“I wanted to make a kid’s album not just for kids but also for the parents with cool music taste that might be tired of listening to the same songs off the Frozen soundtrack 200 times in a row. Bobb [Bruno] and I wanted to make something with an edge while staying in a kid-friendly lane.”
The band have also shared a first taste of the album with an original titled “Cats & Dogs.” Give it a listen right here. Also check out the cover art and tracklist right below here.
