Spotify is set to bolster its audio lineup for kids and families, including a new storytelling show under an exclusive multi-year deal with CoComelon, YouTube’s kids’ content powerhouse. According to Variety, the new “CoComelon Story Time” podcast, which is CoComelon’s first original spoken word programming, will premiere on January 24 exclusively on Spotify.
The show will include 42 beloved storybook classics, available worldwide in four languages: English (US and UK vocabulary), Spanish, German and Brazilian Portuguese. “CoComelon Story Time” will be available only to customers on the Spotify Premium Family plan, along with three new Spotify-produced children’s originals: “Gardenkeeper Gus”, “100 Cinderellas” and “Deep Blue Sea”.
The new audio content for children will be available in the main Spotify app of the Family and Kids Hub, as well as on the Spotify Kids app, exclusively for Spotify Premium Family subscribers. “Gardenkeeper Gus,” launching Jan. 31, is aimed at families with preschoolers. It follows the “delicately told” adventures of 6-year-old Gus and his squirrel best friend, Rel, as they explore and understand the endless, larger-than-life garden behind his family home.
“100 Cinderellas,” which will be released on February 14, is an anthology series of Cinderella stories from around the world. “Deep Blue Sea,” which premiered on February 28, consists of episodes where listeners will visit an underwater ocean lab, Sea Lab Alpha, which offers an impeccable view of marine life. This is the first major content deal for CoComelon since its parent company, Moonbug Entertainment, was acquired last fall in a $3 billion deal by Candle Media. (ANI)
