Rockabye Baby! — which transforms timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies — will release “Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions Of Kiss” on August 28.
Album description: “There will never be a better show opener than ‘Detroit Rock City’. ‘Beth’ is the gold standard for power ballads. And ‘Rock And Roll All Nite’ is the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll national anthem. Given Rockabye‘s kid-tested, parent-approved lullaby treatment, these KISS Klassics are as alive as ever — just as thrilling when xylophones and bells replace Ace Frehley‘s Gibson Les Paul and Gene Simmons‘ demonic snarl. Except come bedtime, junior won’t be able to keep partying into the ‘nite;’ these lullabies will have him counting a veritable KISS Army of sheep.”

Rockabye Baby! was created by VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth‘s sister Lisa Roth in conjunction with CMH Records. The label turns popular rock songs into lullabyes — songs from artists like PEARL JAM, BLACK SABBATH, GUNS N’ ROSES, METALLICA and JOURNEY, just to name a few.
“It’s more for the parent than the child but it calms the child at the same time,” Lisa Roth told Forbes magazine.
She added, “When I knew I’d really hit something right was when I saw an interview of Kirk Hammett of METALLICA talking about playing it for his child, and he said that it works.”
