New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Los Angeles, CA's Best Coast - comprised of singer/guitarist Bethany Cosentino and guitarist Bobb Bruno -- will be releasing their first-ever children's record, entitled Best Kids, as an Amazon Original on June 22, 2018. A mix of original songs, covers by the likes of Lesley Gore and Franki Valli and the Four Seasons, and time-worn favorites like "If You're Happy And You Know It" (feat. special guest Lili Hayes) and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," Best Kids takes all of the band's signature sounds -- fuzzy guitars, sun-kissed melodies, and sky-high harmonies -- and makes them kid-sized for the whole family. The album's first song, "Cats and Dogs," a song about universal love, can be heard NOW.

Says frontwoman Cosentino, "There is an innocence to my songwriting that fits perfectly with writing songs for kids, so when the idea was presented to me to do an original children's album for Amazon Music, I of course said yes! I wanted to make a kid's album not just for kids but also for the parents with cool music taste that might be tired of listening to the same songs off the Frozen soundtrack 200 times in a row. Bobb and I wanted to make something with an edge while staying in a kid-friendly lane. We made the record with Lewis Pesacov, our producer for Crazy For You, who is also now the father of a 1 year old daughter. The process of making this record was fun, creative, and a way for us to express ourselves musically without taking it all so 'seriously.'"

In addition to songs old and new, the band re-recorded their song "When I'm With You" -- from their acclaimed debut Crazy For You -- as a child-friendly version for Best Kids. "A few weeks prior to starting the album, we played that song at an event for the LA non-profit GIRLSCHOOL, a music festival whose mission is to celebrate, connect, and lift women-identified artists, leaders, and voices. The girls who sang with us at the festival also came to the studio to record that song with us, which gave it a whole new direction," Cosentino explains.

She continues, "The world is pretty wild these days and we just hope this record and these songs will bring joy and a smile to some faces that might need joy and smiles, no matter how old they are."

Hundreds of exclusive songs and numerous albums have been released as Amazon Originals, featuring both emerging and established artists spanning diverse genres including pop, indie, country, Americana, roots, blues, alt-rock, and more. Best Kids will be available to stream and purchase exclusively on Amazon Music starting June 22, and is now available for digital and physical pre-order HERE.
