the bird and the bee - One Too Many Hearts

the bird and the bee announces digital-only release of their new Valentine's Day EP 'One Too Many Hearts'.

The past year has been an eventful one for the bird and the bee, the Los Angeles band made up of singer Inara George and multi-instrumentalist/producer Greg Kurstin. The Los Angeles Times named them one of "10 Bands on the Horizon for 2007" and their self-titled debut, a deliciously subversive indie-pop album, was released in January to rave reviews. The New Yorker called it "a sure delight" and Rolling Stone described their distinct sound as "audible sunshine." Their music could be heard on shows like Grey's Anatomy, and they toured throughout the United States, Europe and Japan, both as a headliner and opening band for such artists as Lily Allen, Sia and Rilo Kiley.

Always enchanting, the bird and the bee are now releasing the 'One Too Many Hearts' EP just in time for Valentine's Day! The four-song EP includes three new songs by the duo: "Birthday", "The Last Day Of Our Lives", which Inara George describes as "kind of a flower child-funk/Serge Gainsbourg-thing", and "Come As You Were".

The EP's closer, "Tonight You Belong to Me" is a duet sung by George and Gus Seyffert (a multi-instrumentalist who has toured with the band playing guitar and autoharp). The song was originally written in 1926 and was most famously made a Country hit by Dottie West in 1977 and later performed as a duet by Bernadette Peters and Steve Martin in the 1979 film The Jerk.
