Blur songs have been re-recorded as children's lullabies in a new album out later this month (March 26).

The album is the first record to be released in the UK by US company Rockabye Baby!, who have previously re-worked albums by U2, Black Sabbath and AC/DC into cradle-rocking jams.

Titled 'Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions Of Blur', the album includes hit tracks 'Tender', 'Song 2', 'Beetlebum, 'Girls & Boys' and 'Popscene' re-recorded with xylophones, glockenspiels and bells. You can listen to snippets of the songs, and purchase the album, by clicking here.

Meanwhile, big boy Blur recently announced a one-off date at Dublin's Irish Museum of Modern Art on August 1. They will also play Mexico's Vive Latino Festival tonight (March 16), followed by Coachella Fesitval in California on April 12 and 19, Hong Kong's Asia World Arena on May 6 and the New Taipei County Stadium on May 9.

The Britpop icons, who reformed last year for a string of intimate UK live dates culminating in a massive show in Hyde Park to celebrate the closing of the London 2012 Olympic Games, have recently announced a number of European tour dates. They will play Hungary's Sziget festival in August, as well as Primavera in Spain and Rock Werchter in Belgium.

It is not yet clear whether the band will be playing any more new material for future live dates. Blur penned two new tracks – 'Under The Westway' and 'The Puritan' – for the Hyde Park shows, and the band have hinted that more could follow, with producer William Orbit telling NME earlier this year that the band had been in the studio working on new material with him. However, guitarist Graham Coxon recently stated that there will not be another Blur album in the near future.
