Follow up that Leeds: Singer’s new album is a tribute to Kings County

Finally, Williamsburg singer-songwriter Joanie Leeds and her band The Nightlights have released an eighth children’s album, “Brooklyn Baby!”

The CD comes with a booklet of lyrics and a great album cover depicting the Brooklyn bridge, a stoop, a ferry, and a subway.

Many of the songs on the new CD are inspired by Brooklyn, such as “Subway” and “Stoop,” and they range in genre from the sweet “Brooklyn Baby” to the rousing punk-rockin’ “Rainbow Bagels from Outer Space.”

If your kids become Joanie fans like us after listening to her CD, take the family to see her and her band perform a free show on July 6 at 10:30 am at Madison Square Park (between Fifth and Madison avenues, between 23rd and 26th streets. For more information regarding the event, visit MadisonSquarePark.org.)

“Brooklyn Baby!” CD by Joanie Leeds & The Nightlights, $15, www.joanieleeds.com.
