Tiktok Releases First Album of Major Viral Hits

Some of the major viral hits on TikTok have been given the full classical treatment and will get a traditional release on CD and vinyl this summer, the platform publicized Friday.

The tie-up with Warner Classics is the first time TikTok has expressed into the traditional music market and will see the 18 songs released on running platforms as well as in record stores.

Everybody who spent any substantial time on the video streaming platform will identify songs such as “No Roots” by Alice Merton which used on 1.3 million videos.

Or pleasant piano ditty “Pieces” by Danilo Stankovic, cast-off by some 3.4 million TikTokkers.

All given a full work-over by Germany’s Babelsberg Film Orchestra.

“Listening to No Roots in a new musical context is inspiring,” Merton said in a statement. “I’m excited about the project and I’m looking forward to seeing how it comes to life.”

Some cuts imitate the weird tunes that can blow up on the platform, such as “Monkeys Spinning Monkeys”.

The upbeat, flute-filled ditty that makes seamless background music for many light-hearted videos (27.1 million and counting).

“Wellerman Sea Shanty” harks back to the sea shanty craze that took over TikTok in early 2021.

After a Scottish postman, Nathan Evans, chronicled himself singing the 19th century folk song.

It feasts like wildfire, with Queen’s Brian May and veteran composer Andrew Lloyd Webber among those present their versions of the viral tune.

Thirty-second clips of the 18 amplified songs were accessible for use on TikTok from Friday.

Six full-length singles from the album released across streaming platforms on July 8, with the full album.

“TikTok Classics: Memes and Viral Hits”, hitting streamers and shops in August.
