Best Coast Announce Children’s Album Best Kids, Release “Cats and Dogs”

<> at Bader Field on June 24, 2012 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Best Coast have announced a children’s album called Best Kids, and released the project’s first single, “Cats and Dogs.” The move is an unsurprising departure from the duo’s usual beach rock love ballads—they previously contributed a song to a short film based on the American Girl doll Maryellen. “Cats and Dogs” maintains their sunny guitar riffs and ’90s fuzz rock but opts for a cheerier storyline about how even the most different of people can get along.

The album collects a handful of originals by the Best Coast, as well as renditions of beloved classics like “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” “If You’re Happy and You Know It” featuring Lili Hayes, and a reworked PG version of “When I’m With You” from the band’s 2010 debut Crazy for You. Listen to the new song below.
