Best Coast announce new album, share new song

The indie rock duo are putting out a child-friendly record.

Best Coast are returning with a new album, but it’s not something you’d expect from the indie rock act. Members Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno have announced that their latest record will be one that’s dedicated to—wait for it—children. That’s right.

Titled Best Kids, the LP is the indie rockers’ follow-up to their 2015 album, California Nights, and it’s set to drop June 22. “I wanted to make a kid’s album not just for kids but also for the parents with cool music taste that might be tired of listening to the same songs off the Frozen soundtrack,” Cosentino said.

To accompany the announcement, the pair have also released the first track off the album. And thankfully, it’s nothing like “Let it Go.” “Cats & Dogs” is a cheery, light-hearted pop rock bop with lyrics like, “This is a story, about a little dog / And a little cat, too.”


“We think childless adults will like it, too. Love, two childless adults,” the band tweeted. Phew.
