Update: Well, it would seem that somebody’s read my post and listened to what I said here (just kidding, I wish I were that relevant) Anyway, Thalia’s team has eventually published a press release on her Facebook page, revealing the album’s cover, track list and more details about the project.

*** Los 11 temas con sus respectivos vídeos; en varios de ellos interactúa Thalia con dibujos animados creados especialmente para este proyecto***
The 11 songs with their respective videos; in several of them Thalia is interacting with cartoons created especially for this project
Oh, no wonder track 3 sounded familiar! Thalia actually sang this before, as Maria la del Barrio 😀
And she also sang a bit of track 10 in Rosalinda (thanks, Oleandra!)
It looks like some of the songs are from the work of Thalia’s beloved Pedro Infante, others have been performed by kids in the Juguemos a cantar festival (Thalia participated in 1984 with Moderna nina del rock – I’m surprised she didn’t choose it for the album) and one of them was featured on the Wreck-It Ralph OST (we know who inspired Thalia to do the English version of that song – her son Matthew Alejandro). This album will be a treat not only to children, but also to those who grew up with these songs.
Regarding the album cover, it’s… nice… 😀 but it could have been much better, to be honest.
Also, I’m glad I got my answers to what the DVD will include. Apparently, hundreds of people participated in the production process of the music and the cartoons and if all their work turns out to be as cute as the Chupie video, everyone will adore it!
Don’t know about you, but I’m excited to listen to those songs in Thalia’s voice and adapted to 2014! 😉
When Thalia’s children’s book (Chupie – The Binky That Returned Home) was released, it was supposed to come with an album for the little ones, composed of Thalia’s childhood songs that her two children enjoy too.
The book was released but there was no sign of the CD, until Thalia mentioned in the HuffPost Live interview that she was preparing two new albums and people started speculating that one of them was going to be the children’s one.
Well, they were right. Although some sites informed that the album was going to be released on the third week of January, we only now have a title and an “official” release date.
According to music store mixup.com.mx, the album, called Viva Kids Vol.1, will be distributed in two formats: CD+DVD and DVD+CD starting with March, 25 (although the date may change). The album cover is yet to be released.
My reactions to this? First of all, Viva Kids? – how did I not see that coming? Secondly, Vol. 1? – cause one children’s album wasn’t enough. Also, CD+DVD? – what’s on that DVD?
I must say I’m intrigued by this album, especially the DVD… but it’s also disappointing that once again, I had to find out about this thanks to the fans, instead of an official source (hello, record label? hello, Thalia’s team? can we, just once, get this kind of info from you? it would be so nice!)
