The song will be featured on the first The Fresh Beat Band soundtrack, which spans all three seasons of the television series and will be available in January. Both the soundtrack and the tour will showcase the Fresh Beats' catchy, preschool-friendly tracks, from "Here We Go" to "Stomp the House."

The Fresh Beats recently released singles, "Here We Go" and "A Friend Like You," have been mainstays at the top of the iTunes children's music chart since their debut.

"We are so excited to get out on the road, meet our amazing fans and perform our songs," said The Fresh Beat Band. "The concert has something for everyone to enjoy and we can't wait to see the families singing and dancing along."

Nick Jr. is rolling out new episodes of The Fresh Beat Band every Friday through Dec. 9. In anticipation of the forthcoming tour, The Fresh Beat Band will appear in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday aboard the Dora the Explorer float and will perform with Jason Mraz at Carnegie Hall Friday. The Fresh Beat Band also will ring the opening bell at the NYSE on Friday.

In 2011, The Fresh Beat Band performed live on "The View" and on the Ellipse in Washington, D.C., at Nickelodeon's Worldwide Day of Play. The Fresh Beat Band debuted in 2009 on Nickelodeon and has amassed an amazing core fan base.

Kids are introduced to the fundamentals of music such as melody, rhythm, tempo and performance styles.

In each episode, preschoolers sing and dance along as they help The Fresh Beat Band solve everyday challenges.

Viewers also learn the importance of friendship, working together in a positive way and respecting each other's differences.
