Entertainment One is set to release first-ever Peppa Pig music album, My First Album, on 19 July.

The music release will lauch in English-speaking territories including the UK, US and Australia as part of the brand’s 15th anniversary celebrations.

The new album will mark Peppa Pig's first entry into the official music charts when it debuts on digital music platforms this summer.

Chris Taylor, eOne's Global President, Music says: "After the success of the PJ Masks album and live show, we are excited to bring the world Peppa Pig's My First Album. Fans have always connected to this beloved character through the music on the show, and Peppa's My First Album will include classic songs as well as new compositions that are sure to become favorites."

My First Album features a compilation of 16 newly recorded music tracks including extended versions of favourite songs from the series composed by Julian Nott such as Bing Bong Zoo, Balloon Ride and Jumping in Muddy Puddles, in addition to fresh compositions by Paul Moessl created specifically for the album.

Harley Bird, the voice of Peppa Pig, will sing on several tracks and the album will also include songs that feature in the recent UK and Australian cinema release Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun.

"We're very excited to be releasing an official Peppa Pig music album for the first time in the brand's 15-year history," adds eOne's Rebecca Harvey, EVP Global Brand Management, Family & Brands. "Music has always been central to the appeal of the show around the world, so we're delighted to share these new musical arrangements with Peppa's many fans during the brand's anniversary year. We hope it will become the perfect soundtrack for families to enjoy at home, on the go and at party celebrations."

Peppa Pig: My First Album follows on from the successful launch of PJ Masks Heroes Forever in May, which generated over 150,000 streams globally in its first week.
