The new Play School Show Time series, season four, features more Australian actors, artists and television personalities taking on beloved songs from Play School.

The first of the new episodes shines the spotlight on Emma Watkins, aka Emma Memma, who you may know as a former member of The Wiggles. She takes on The Alphabet Song, while Ball Park Music are up next with their rendition of Oomba Baroomba

Singer and actress Lucy Durack follows, snuggling up with Diddle, Little Ted and Humpty as she performs It's So Nice To Have A Cuddle underneath the twinkling stars. 

Amy Sheppard brings country music to the table on Dingle Dangle Scarecrow as the Play School Percussion Group accompany Teeny Tiny Stevies for the number, What Do You Think My Name Is?

Play School isn’t the only Australian children’s series to invite musicians onto its show; Bluey has tapped Neil Finn of Crowded House fame and Kate Miller-Heidke to cameo in new episodes of the popular programme this April.

A few months ago, Bluey announced its new soundtrack album, Bluey: Dance Mode, which will be released on Friday, 21 April.

The new Bluey album features 17 new original tracks composed by Joff Bush. The songs span all three seasons of Bluey but with brand-new recordings.

Bush said about the upcoming release, "Bluey is an incredible world created from Joe Brumm’s stories, and to help bring the musical part of that to life has always been thrilling. 

"Each one of these tunes was written and produced from the heart. The secret sauce, though, is really the wonderful musicians, co-writers and collaborators I got to work with."

He continued, "Writing for kids and families really frees you from the shackles of trying to be cool or fashionable and just make music that connects. That’s what I feel we are doing here."

Bluey: Dance Mode is available to pre-order on CD or orange vinyl. You can also pre-save via your favourite streaming services. Pre-order/pre-save here.
