The announcement of AT HOME WITH THE KIDS was met by critical acclaim from outlets such as Rolling Stone, Billboard, and SPIN, with SPIN praising Sia’s “Riding On My Bike” as “some new music that’s great for the whole family…The sing-song piano-driven children’s tune effortlessly shows Sia’s affinity toward the carefree, fun and whimsical.”
"We were approached to do a children’s song and without hesitation Zoe and I both immediately gravitated to ‘Tomorrow’. Though we have dramatically different upbringings, me in rural Alaska and Zoe from Northwest England, ‘Annie’ was a staple growing up and a big part of why we love music, it was something we both watched and sang with our families. Now, we get to raise our daughter with the same tradition of singing ‘Tomorrow.’ Lyrically this song could not be better for the times, we hope the song does as much for you as it does for us." – PORTUGAL THE MAN
“We had a blast doing this one and we made it a true family affair. While quarantining together, I [Ben] got my 7 & 10 year old nieces to sing some of the backing vocals and my brother in law played ukulele. We are honored to be involved in this project and hope it raises a lot of money for a good cause.” – THE KNOCKS
"Very happy we could all make some music in our living rooms to share with kids and their parents during this difficult mess we’ve found ourselves in. I'm also very happy that this music is helping to provide support to Save the Children for all the work they continue to do to provide opportunities for children and families to have a better existence on our planet.” – ANDERSON EAST
“I’m excited and proud to have been given the opportunity to write and record a song that not only hopefully speaks to someone out there when things are crazy and uncertain, but also helps to raise money for an essential cause. I love my three nephews who performed on this song with me, so whether it’s education, health or protection for kids in need, Save the Children is a super important presence in communities around the world and I’m grateful to help.” – MATT MAESON
"with this song & this project, I know all of us involved wanted to make something for the kids & the parents at home right now. ‘night night’ reminds me of the songs my dad would sing me to sleep with when I was a child. it’s amazing because now I get to bring a new lullaby into the world & help some kids while we’re at it… & adults too! - I know I’ve already fallen asleep to it a few times :)" - gnash
