The Bird and The Bee will be releasing Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen on August 2nd. The band will be putting their spin on a bunch of Van Halen hits and shared a cover of the 1984 song “Hot For Teacher.”
The group cover Van Halen without guitars! Pushing the piano to do that work. Beck also joins the group for a bizarre and quirky spoken word bit.
“The Bird and The Bee bring unforeseen angles to the Van Halen song book. Makes sense because, like Eddie Van Halen, Greg is a kind of musical wunderkind in his own right and Inara’s vocals bring a cool counterpart to Diamond Dave’s pyrotechnics,” observes Beck. “Making a cameo on their version of ‘Hot for Teacher’ felt like an extension of the kind of riffing and fooling around we do in the studio on a normal session.”
