A Van Halen Tribute Album Is Coming From Indie Group The Bird And The Bee

June 11, 2019

We’ve heard plenty of different covers of classic rock songs over the years, but you’ve probably never heard Van Halen like this. 

The indie pop band The Bird And The Bee have just released another track from their upcoming Van Halen tribute album titled ‘Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen’. Their latest single is a cover of “Ain’t Talking ‘Bout Love.” Check it out below. 

This is the band's second tribute album; back in 2010, they released an album paying tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates. According to the group's multi-instrumentalist Greg Kurstin, he says that when he wants to listen to hard rock there's just nothing like Van Halen. 

“When I want to listen to hard-rock music there’s still nothing that hits me like they do. Every time I hear them it takes me back to when I first found them on the radio, and it felt so dangerous to me—like they were from a whole other world. It would be so great if people who would never usually listen to Van Halen heard this record, and then ended falling in love with them too.”
