To mark 20 years of the Teletubbies, DHX Brands is in preparation to roll out a new music album that features a mix of songs from the series.
Named as Big Hugs, the album has been developed in association with ABC Kids and The Children’s Group. This will be available digitally and on CD in the UK from September 29th.
“For 20 years, pre-schoolers have been singing, dancing and saying ‘Eh-oh’ along with the Teletubbies, so what better way to celebrate the iconic brand’s 20th anniversary than with a new album?” asked Linda Noelle Bush, music manager at DHX Media.
“The Teletubbies saw tremendous success with the release of their original album in 1997 that was championed by Simon Cowell. The single Teletubbies say Eh-oh was a Christmas number one single in the UK, selling more than one million copies. We look forward to enchanting a whole new generation of Teletubbies fans with the release of this new soundtrack,” she added.
Interestingly, narrator Daniel Rigby has lent his voice to many of the songs of the album including the title track, Big Hugs, Bottom Bump Song and Tiddlytubbies Songtime.
19 songs complete the tracklist, which also feature the Teletubbies and Voice Trumpet, Teresa Gallagher.
