If many of you are like me, your kids are likely back in school either this week or soon enough! One of my favorite artists, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, has a brand new album coming out in the Spring. On that album will be one of his new tracks, "Back Home" which is the perfect beat for you and your kids to listen to. The first time I actually heard it on satellite radio I was by myself - without the kids (yes, I do in fact listen to Kids Place Live even when I'm in the car sans kids). I have to tell ya'll that I got teary-eyed! Not because it's a sad song or anything like that but because it's such a REAL song about going back to school that I think even adults can relate to. Skidoo has an awesome way of connecting the emotion to the most perfect words that both kids and grown-ups can enjoy.
Our family was first introduced to him two summers ago when he performed at KC Jiggle Jam. I was floored when I heard him live.
I am HUGE fan of hip-hop and rap, and R&B. You know, music that you can really MOVE to! When I heard him perform I suddenly realized that I didn't have to sacrifice my musical tastes just to have appropriate kids music on. We got Skidoo's CD that weekend and listened to it religiously for at least several months. Now that we are SiriusXM subscribers, we get to hear him (along with loads of other great artists) just about everyday!
Ok, so back to this new track, "Back Home". Although the new album doesn't release until sometime next spring, Skidoo is offering this brand new song for FREE to all of his Facebook fans! Seriously! Head on over and "like" him then get the details on how to download your free track.
You can listen to it here beforehand. I promise, you will NOT be disappointed!
