With families spending a lot more time together these days as everyone adjusts to the new normal of working and schooling at home, finding music that parents can enjoy together with their kids can be challenging in a seemingly endless scroll of albums and playlists. A new branded music series 4 All Ages has taken the guesswork of finding music the whole family can listen to with curated collections of timeless classics and some of the biggest and best modern hits across all major genres guaranteed to be family friendly and parent cool.
The just-launched series debuts with 14 playlists spanning pop, rock, reggae, country, disco, dance, soul, hits of the ’80s and ’90s, and the themed titles “Fun Sing-a-long” and “Summer Fun,” “Motown,” “Bedtime Music,” and “Relax & Chill.” Whether parents are wanting to introduce their kids to some of their favorite songs or educate them about a specific genre, 4 All Ages seeks to be the go-to destination for classic and contemporary songs that have been vetted to be appropriate for ages 1 to 100 and that won’t make anyone pull their hair out even after the twentieth listen. The playlists are available domestically and internationally across major streaming services including Amazon Music, Deezer, Gaana, Pandora, QQ Music, Rhapsody, Saavn, Spotify, Tidal and others.
“We are excited to launch our new family-friendly music series 4 All Ages and to spotlight so many of UMG’s incredible songs that are suitable for children and that parents already love,” said Bruce Resnikoff, President & CEO of UMe. “Finding music that families can listen to together can sometimes be difficult so UMe wanted to create an easy way for people to know with confidence that what they are putting on is OK for all ages. With these new collections, there’s something for everyone and we hope that families enjoy the music together for years to come.”
