Guess what I’m listening to? Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. Yep. But it’s not from a Michael Jackson CD and it has no words. What in the world am I talking about? I’m here to tell you about a new series of children’s albums called Cradle Rock, by Brash Music and Tree Top Records. They just hit the stores on October 25th and I’m listening to the pop one, which features lullaby versions of Michael Jackson songs.
Cradle Rock uses vibraphones, glockenspiels and mellotrons to turn iconic songs and albums by top artists such as Kenny Chesney and Johnny Cash into naptime-friendly listening material. With Cradle Rock, parents can introduce their children to some of the greatest albums ever recorded including the first ever urban album turned into lullabies, Michael Jackson’s Thriller (released 29 years ago November 30th).
“Parents will appreciate that Cradle Rock keeps melodic structure and tempos in tact,” says Steve Jones, CEO of Brash Music. “Moms and dads write us saying they can sing right along to Cradle Rock while rocking baby to sleep.” Cradle Rock albums in development include U2’s “The Joshua Sleep Tree,” Black Eyed Peas’ “Sleep-pea Hits” as well as lullaby albums inspired by Nickelback, Carrie Underwood and The Eagles.
