The Hives reveal winner of single artwork competition: Rowenna Harrison

The Hives - We Rule The World artwork

The Hives release the infectious, funky anthem that is "We Rule The World (T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S)" as a single on 25th February 2008 (Polydor). Recorded with hip-hop producer Pharrell Williams in Miami for 'The Black and White Album' it is an electrifying collaboration, a meeting of great minds and big ideas, taking The Hives into new sonic terrain.

The single will be released digitally and as a Limited 10" Vinyl backed with exclusive remixes: Matt Helder from Arctic Monkeys shakes up "We Rule The World (T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S)", as does Russell Leetch from Editors while Nick Zinner from Yeah Yeah Yeahs gets his magic fingers on previous single "Tick Tick Boom" with his Post Colonization Mix.


The Hives recently invited fans to submit artwork in a competition for the sleeve of the new single which yielded a hearty response. The band got their heads stuck in to the virtual postbag, whittling down the few hundred entries to a strong shortlist, and then a final favourite featuring first class portraits of the band by one Rowenna Harrison from London. Rowena's design will adorn the 10" single sleeve and accompany the digital release.
