The Head And The Heart Release New Song “Honeybee”

The Head And The Heart have released their new song “Honeybee” today from their forthcoming album Living Mirage which will be released May 17th via Warner Bros.Records / Reprise Records. Purchase/stream “Honeybee” here. You can also watch the visualizer for “Honeybee” here and acoustic/unplugged version of the song via the video below.

Songwriter and vocalist Jon Russell etched out the sauntering “Honeybee,” in Joshua Tree during the band’s first writing session. Then an a-cappella floor stomp about rescuing a decaying relationship, during a writing workshop in Los Angeles. Jon subsequently traveled 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 – realizing 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.”

“Missed Connection,” the first single from the new album, was released two weeks ago where it was #1 Most added at AAA last week (already sitting at #11 on Mediabase AAA chart) and #1 Most added at Alternative this week, and in the most added category 2 weeks in a row (already charting at Alternative radio after just 2 weeks.) ”Missed Connection” is now available to download, stream or watch the lyric video. Pre-order Living Mirage here.

The band will kick off a 38-city tour starting in Buffalo, NY on June 21st, making stops in Austin, Denver, Chicago, Atlanta and more, before wrapping October 20th in Toronto, ON.
