Bluey: Dance Mode, the follow-up to Bluey: The Album, will be released on Friday, 21 April. The first single, Dance Mode, is linked below.

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."

With song titles like Cat Squad, Chattermax, and Lollipop Yum Yum Yum, Bluey: Dance Mode is sure to appeal to the kids while parents can find joy in different musical genres on display: there's bluegrass on the tunes Grandad and Army, while the title track is an EDM banger.

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.
