Yet Another British Kids Music Compilation

First Colours Are Brighter, now this:

"This month brings the release of Songs for the Young at Heart, an album chiefly of cover versions of children's songs by different artists, curated by Stuart Staples and David Boulter of the indie band Tindersticks."

Aside from the curious British use of the verb "curated," of note is the participation of Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Wagner (from Lambchop), and Stuart Murdoch (from Belle and Sebastian).

The article says the album was released in England on Monday, January 22nd, but the V2 album page suggests Feb. 26th. suggests both are correct. I know, it's confusing. Life is so not black and white, eh?
