Beck Unleashes A Collabo With ItsNotYouItsMe Underground Favorites The Bird And the Bee For A Van Halen Cover 'Hot For Teacher'!




Beck unleashes A collabo with ItsNotYouItsMe underground favorites The Bird And the Bee for a stellar cover of Van Halen's 'Hot For Teacher'. Beck along with The Bird and the Bee impeccably meld together a dynamic and dazzling number.

Sending out quite thee razzle dazzle cover a la 1980's legends Van Halen. Young legend Beck summoned frequent friend producer Greg Kurstin and singer Inara George to help cover the wild track.Van Halen's juggernaut 1984 ode to the always classic theme of professor lust in "Hot For Teacher". The Dave Lee Roth fronted cover is a jazzy snazzy upbeat synthpop take on the classic hit.

Beck does some beautiful spoken word intro portraying a substitute teacher “We’ll be reviewing the text from Moby Dick, so please turn now to page 69," Beck says. Singer George from The Bird and the Bee then open's into the song's luminous lyrical thesis. Beck comes back around in the middle of the song to deliver a detention slip to George and then one more time to lecture.

Greg Kurstin the producer has also won several Grammy awards for his work with Adele. The Bird and the Bee's " Hot For Teacher" is the 3rd tune previewed from thee soon to be released album, following the duo's reworking of 1978's VH gem "Ain't Talking 'Bout Love" and their piano-esque "Panama."

Beck said the following about the smashing duo: “The Bird and The Bee bring unforeseen angles to the Van Halen songbook. 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. 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.”

This album follows the band's 2015 record "Recreational Love" and their 2010 covers album "Interpreting the Masters, Vol. 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates." Without further ado press play on thee latest hit parade with The Bird and the Bee and Beck's yummy sunny cover of 'Hot For Teacher' featured right below!
