The Bird and the Bee return this summer with their first album in five years, entitled Recreational Love. The duo, which pairs Grammy-nominated producer Greg Kurstin (Sia, Foster the People) with Living Sisters member Inara George, have embraced their pop side on lead single “Will You Dance?,” which was KCRW Today’s Top Tune on May 5. Check it out here.
The song is about losing inhibition and doing what you like, and it’s accompanied by a video about just that. The video – which premiered on Funny or Die – stars The Big Bang Theory‘s Simon Helberg as an office worker who is compelled to party with The Bird and the Bee after encountering them in a restroom, much to the chagrin of his boss Patton Oswalt. View it here in a Brooklyn Vegan post that also includes info on a handful of live shows from the band in New York and Los Angeles.
Recreational Love is out July 17.
