If that wasn’t exciting enough, they’ve revealed a taste of what to expect today via the five-track ReWiggled EP.
“It’s been really enjoyable, and also so humbling, hearing all these wonderful artists doing their versions of Wiggles songs – they’re all so very talented,” Wiggles founder and Blue Wiggle Anthony Field said.
“And it’s been a real thrill to get back in the studio together with all the Wiggles – the current members and the OG’s – to record some cover versions of our own. We had so much fun doing Elephant for Like A Version, and now we’re really excited for people to hear what we’ve cooked up for this record!”
The Wiggles will embark on a massive arena tour in 2022, with daytime shows from the newly expanded line-up, and night-time shows from The OG Wiggles (Jeff, Murray, Greg and Anthony), the latter of whom will feature support from a rotating cast of artists including Polish Club, DZ Deathrays, Planet and more.
