The Story Pirates, renowned for taking kids’ wildest story ideas and turning them into award-winning musical sketch comedy, release a digital album of 12 original songs on August 28th: Cats Sit On You.
These fan-favorite songs from seasons 2 and 3 of The Story Pirates Podcast, were remixed and mastered for the crispest sound.
“Cats Sit On You,” already a hit on SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live, is based on a one-line story by Alex, a 6 year old from California. In full, it reads: “Cats sit on you, and sometimes they take over the school.” Another hit from the podcast, “Banana Clown” is a hip hop track featuring Grammy Award-winning rapper Secret Agent 23 Skidoo. The original story is about a guy who has a hard time finding the right job, written by an 8 year old from Massachusetts named Benjamin. “Humming” is a fan-favorite song about a simple habit that snowballs into a worldwide trend, adapted from a story originally written by Emily, an 11 year old from Texas.
Perhaps the timeliest song on the album is “The First Kids to Work at the Census,” which debuted on the podcast in April. It’s a song about two kids who just want to put their natural talents to work. The original story is by William, a 7-year-old from California, whose dad actually works for the U.S. Census.
On release day, The Story Pirates celebrated the album release with a live streamed improv show, called the Story Creation Zone, and a Cats Sit On You themed dance class, exclusively available to Story Pirates Creator Club subscribers.
