You’re a pretty little flower, I’m a busy little bee – honey that’s all you need to see, I can take you for an hour but then I’m gonna leave
The All-American Rejects shot to fame in 2003 thanks to their self-titled debut and 2005′s Move Along which spawned the hit singles “Swing, Swing”, “Dirty Little Secret” & “Move Along”. I also enjoyed their more recent album – 2008′s When The World Comes Down - and I am excited to announce to you today that they are making a comeback in 2012 through the release of their new album, Kids In The Street. While no date has been set yet for the release of the album the first single has premiered online – “Beekeeper’s Daughter” is the track Interscope has picked, which will be released digitally on January 24th and will be sent to Top 40 radio a week later on the 31st.
While I’m happy to have these guys back I have to admit that I am a little bit disappointed by the track because I had hoped for something a little stronger (given how good previous lead singles “Swing, Swing”, “Dirty Little Secret” & “Gives You Hell” were) but I’m wondering whether “Daughter” is possibly just a promotional single, to get word back out there that AAR is back in the game. The album doesn’t have a released date yet so I’m assuming that Interscope would like to test the waters a little, considering it has been a couple of years since these guys were actively on radio. Regardless, I am excited to hear more from these guys, and look forward to getting my hands on a copy of their album when it hits stores later this year.
*Single not available for digital download yet, link will be made available here once it is released later this month.
