The Head and the Heart Release 'Honeybee (Live Acoustic)'
The Head and the Heart have released the song and Kevin Gray directed video for "Honeybee (Live Acoustic)," a stripped down version of the song "Honeybee," a front runner from the band's fourth full-length album, Living Mirage, released on Warner Records / Reprise Records to critical praise earlier this year.
Generating more than 14,000,000 listens, "Honeybee" is outpacing daily streams of ultimate fan favorite "Rivers and Roads" from their self-titled debut. The Head and The Heart had this to say about the release:
"We wanted to give you all a version of 'Honeybee' stripped of everything but vocals, acoustic guitar and piano, the way it was originally written. While on tour this Fall we found a charming old warehouse in Philly and took it over for a recording session with some friends. And we brought a camera crew along to capture the magic..."
"'Honeybee' really captures the idea of 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."
