The Head And The Heart release new track ‘Honeybee’

The Head And The Heart have released their new track, ‘Honeybee’, the second to be released from their forthcoming album Living Mirage, out May 17th via Warner Bros. Records/Reprise Records.


Songwriter and vocalist Jon Russell etched out the sauntering ‘Honeybee’ in Joshua Tree during the band’s first writing session, which was then an a-cappella floor stomp about rescuing a decaying relationship, conceived during a writing workshop in Los Angeles.

Jon subsequently travelled to Seattle to flesh out tracks with Matt Gervais and Charity Rose Thielen, who notably finessed the sweetly harmonic bridge to ‘Honeybee’. The entire band later convened in Nashville, reinvigorated by the music’s unscripted direction.

“Honeybee really captures the idea of living the end of your life with some regret – realising you have been living a life complacent with the familiar – maybe even taking the person closest to you for granted and regretting not expressing your love towards them until it’s too late”, commented Charity. “It’s a concept that connects with all of us and this song, sonically, for the band is intriguingly minimalist. It feels fresh.”

‘Honeybee’ follows ‘Missed Connection’, the first single to be taken from the upcoming album, and comes ahead of an extensive 38-date US tour starting in June following the release of their upcoming fourth album next month.
