The original ‘OG’ Wiggles Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt and Greg Page, have joined the current Wiggles Anthony Field, Simon Pryce and Lachy Gillespie and new members Tsehay Hawkins, Evie Ferris, John Pearce and Kelly Hamilton and their famous friends for a reWiggling of their classic hits.

Some of those friends are Spacey Jane, DZ Deathrays, The Chats, Stella Donnelly, San Cisco, Emily Wurramara, Polish Club, Dami Im, Donny Benet, Emma Donovan and The Putbacks, Custard, Melbourne Ska Orchestra and Luca Brasi

Wiggles founder and Blue Wiggle Anthony Field, remarked, “It’s been really enjoyable, and also so humbling, hearing all these wonderful artists doing their versions of Wiggles songs – they’re all so very talented. And it’s been a real thrill to get back in the studio together with all the Wiggles – the current members and the OG’s – to record some cover versions of our own. We had so much fun doing ‘Elephant’ for Like A Version, and now we’re really excited for people to hear what we’ve cooked up for this record!”

The new album features:

· DZ Deathrays – ‘Hot Potato’
