The Wiggles’ Emma Watkins and Lachy Gillespie make history as Australia’s first married couple to each release a solo album on the same day!
Nawwww! We just love it!
Dial E for Emma! and Lachy! will be available on October 7th on CD and digital download.
The only other couple in recorded history to release an album in Australia on the same day has been John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Since marrying in April 2016, it’s been six months of non-stop touring, filming and recording for the loved up couple, having recently completed The Wiggles’ Wiggle Town! tour selling out a staggering 250 shows.
Currently The Wiggles are taking the U.S. and Canada by storm, performing in 20 cities before returning to Australia in November for Dance, Dance! The Wiggles Big Show Tour arena and entertainment centre spectacular.
On the album Dial E for Emma!, Emma shares her love for dancing, singing, sign language and dress ups.
Emma says, “I hope Dial E for Emma!, inspires the young listener to dance to the various rhythms of the music on the album, sing along with the beautiful songs and listen to the story songs. We know from research that children learn through play, hopefully the young child will want to “Dial E” for Emma over and over again with their telephones. And just like the characters on the album who ring me up to come and visit, developing their language along the way!”
Emma also credits Lachy with helping her prepare for the album, “Although I’ve always loved singing, when I began with The Wiggles back in 2012, I’d had more experience as a dancer. It was Lachy, who’s an incredible professionally trained singer, who really taught me how to use my voice. He was so sweet and supportive right from the very beginning and that gave me so much confidence in my singing.”
Meanwhile, fans of Purple Wiggle Lachy are in for a treat with the Lachy! album, as they wiggle along to all of their favourite songs from the hit ABC TV series by the same name.
The CD features over 40 tracks including, ‘Let’s Go Riding with Ponso the Pony’, ‘The Invention Song’, ‘It’s Time To Walk to the Toy Room’, the beautiful Irish lullaby ‘Castle of Dromore’ and ‘Moonshine Pearl’, a song written by Lachy for Emma. Lachy says, “It was such an exciting time creating the Lachy! TV show. I hope the children have fun singing and dancing along with this selection of some of my favourite songs. Enjoy the music!”
