JUNO Award-winning Canadian indie pop band Walk Off the Earth has released “The Durian Fruit Song,” the lead single off their upcoming original 7-track children’s album, Romeo Eats Vol. 1, due out for release on September 24th via Golden Carrot Records/The Orchard. LISTEN HERE // PRE-SAVE HERE.
“The Durian Fruit Song” arrives today alongside the group's newly launched children’s web series, "Romeo Eats," a food discovery show hosted by Walk Off the Earth lead singer Gianni Luminati and his 3-year-old son Romeo who has an insatiable appetite for all things divine. Together with his wife and fellow WOTE lead singer Sarah Blackwood, the pair discovered Romeo's peculiar taste for interesting food organically, and decided to share his love of healthy food with their global fanbase with the hashtag #RomeoEats, which quickly became a viral hit.
In addition to original video content, each “Romeo Eats” episode is complete with an original song produced by Walk Off the Earth that features the explored food in question. Jams like “Caviare Super Star” and “Pomegranate Panet” are sure to be future family sing-along hits.
Walk Off the Earth shares, “We’re so excited to share Romeo’s genuine love for food with the world! We hope it inspires fans of all ages to expand their palette and knowledge of everything nutritious, delicious and suspicious! We had such a blast creating the music for the show. It allowed us to step outside the box and create within a new realm of music! We really think people are going to love the songs, the show, and of course, Romeo!”
Earlier this year, Walk Off the Earth delivered their sixth studio full-length album, Meet You There, that includes their latest Hot AC radio single, “Love You Right”, featuring GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum-selling Danish pop group Lukas Graham. The LP also features previously released singles “Nicknames” with gnash, which spent 20+ weeks at the top of Canadian radio charts, as well as “Oh What A Feeling,” “Anthem,” “How it is,” “this is love,” and “Farther We Go.”
