Indie Synthpop Duo The Bird and The Bee Working on Fourth Album

    Looks like one of MY favorite indie/synthpop bands, The Bird and The Bee, are working on a new album! AHHHH! So exciting! Per a tweet from 1/2 of The Bird and The Bee, Greg Kurstin on May 16th:

    “Really excited about new bird n the bee album. Think it’s my fav! 9 songs pretty much finished so far.” {SOURCE}

    I know this isn’t much to go off of but it’s something! The duo’s last album, Interpreting The Masters Volume 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates came out last March on Blue Note Records, preceded by the digital release of “I’m Into Something Good,” a cover by Hall & Oates. The album didn’t really have any official singles and only managed to peak at #75 on the Billboard 200 chart, still besting their previous release, Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future, which peaked at #78. I’ve been a fan of The Bird and The Bee since their #1 Billboard Dance Club Play single, “Fucking Boyfriend,” and seeing them open up for Lily Allen only solidified my love for Kurstin and Inara George. Their past three albums have been amazing so I’m expecting no less from their fourth…perhaps even more, based on Kurstin’s glowing commentary up above.

    Since the release of their last album, Kurstin and George have both been busy, lending their writing and producing talents to other artists. Kurstin worked on the latest Foster The People album and makes appearances on new albums by Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Dido, Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Cosgrove. George too has been busy, writing songs for singer/songwriter Priscilla Ahn‘s new album When You Grow Up.  Check out the video for “Love Letter To Japan,” off the band’s sophomore album, Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future.
