Tender is the night... New Blur Lullabies Album to be released

Want your newborn or baby to listen to Blur without any adult content? Worried about the adult innuendos in Blur songs? Think 'Beetlebum' is a bad influence on the kids? Have no more fear - American baby music company Rockabye Baby will record and re-release Blur's hit singles as baby-friendly tunes in a new album to cater especially for parents to play "during those long night feeds". 

Blur's biggest hits will be re-recorded into instrumental lullabies for children as part of the famous Rockabye Baby music series. The album will include some of the band's most famous songs including 'Country House', 'Parklife', 'Song 2' and the "sexually ambitious" 90s disco hit 'Girls and Boys', all covered using gentle sounds, slow melodies and percussion instruments like glockenspiels and harps.

Blur is not the only artist that have had their songs re-made by Rockabye Baby. The company has already created 37 similar albums that are adjusted for younger listeners, covering songs by bands like The Beatles, Nirvana, The Smiths, Rolling Stones, U2 and Bob Marley.

According to the Independent, "the firm has a celebrity following including Victoria Beckham, whose footballer husband David downloaded an album of Beatles songs in lullaby form for their daughter Harper Seven. Also fans are Elton John and David Furnish, who play not only the Fab Four’s songs, but also the versions of the Rolling Stones and Green Day in their nursery".

The adult-to-kid conversion of songs has become a popular phenomena in the last few years. Website also has softened versions of adult songs that are suitable for children. A line from Katy Perry's "Hot n Cold" for example, would be changed from "We kiss, we make up" to "We hug, we make up". 

The album, titled Rockabye Baby Lullabye Renditions of Blur will be released on March 26th 2013. This will mark the first UK release by the USA company.
