FROZEN SCORE DIGITAL SOUNDTRACK
ALL 4 ALBUMS SET FOR RELEASE ON SEPTEMBER 30TH
Never tell your kids you are getting something in the mail, as they will keep asking you "is it here yet?" :-) I slipped and told the girls that we would be getting the new Frozen: The Songs CD to review, and they haven't stopped asking or waiting for the mail to come, to see if it has arrived. Even though they are little, they know all the words to the songs, and could recite the whole movie if I let them. And, like so many other Frozen fans out there, both young and old, they have to have all things Frozen, including this new CD. Once it does come, I know what will be playing on repeat in the car, and being cause for an impromptu dance party daily. :-) So, stay tuned!
In the meantime, here is the press release that has been circulated the Internet about this and 3 other Frozen album releases, that hit store shelves yesterday...
