Entertainment One (eOne) and Sesame Workshop have teamed up for the release of Sesame Road to mark Record Store Day 2016 on November 25th.

The deal marks the first time the album will be available on vinyl for fans, after its original release on cassette in 1993.

Priced at $19.98, the cover art is a parody of the classic Beatles album Abbey Road, plus the vinyl will be available in red, yellow, blue and green.

It also boasts parodies of tracks including Hey Jude, With a Little Help from my Friends, Rebel Yell and Girls Just Want to Have Fun.

“Nothing says, ‘the holidays are here’ quite like a Beatles’-related record,” says Michael Kurtz, co-founder of Record Store Day.

“And for little kids and their parents, nothing says, ‘celebrate life and have fun' quite like Sesame Street. We couldn’t be happier to have this great album come out for our Black Friday celebration.”

Sesame Street composers Christopher Cerf, Jeff Moss, and Joe Raposo have contributed songs to the album, which feature the voices of Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie.

Jennifer A. Perry, VP and publisher for North America media products at Sesame Workshop, added: “For over four decades, Sesame Street has helped children grow smarter, stronger and kinder by providing meaningful content for families to enjoy together.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with eOne Music to bring these classic songs in a fun format to fans of all ages.”
