Indie Synthpop Duo The Bird and The Bee Working on Fourth Album

Looks like one of MY favorite indie/synthpop bands, The Bird and The Bee, are working on a new album! AHHHH! So exciting! Per a tweet from 1/2 of The Bird and The Bee, Greg Kurstin on May 16th:
"Really excited about new bird n the bee album. Think it's my fav! 9 songs pretty much finished so far." {SOURCE}
I know this isn't much to go off of but it's something! The duo's last album, Interpreting The Masters Volume 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates came out last March on Blue Note Records, preceded by the digital release of "I'm Into Something Good," a cover by Hall & Oates. The album didn't really have any official singles and only managed to peak at #75 on the Billboard 200 chart, still besting their previous release, Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future, which peaked at #78. I've been a fan of The Bird and The Bee since their #1 Billboard Dance Club Play single, "Fucking Boyfriend," and seeing them open up for Lily Allen only solidified my love for Kurstin and Inara George. Their past three albums have been amazing so I'm expecting no less from their fourth...perhaps even more, based on Kurstin's glowing commentary up above.

Since the release of their last album, Kurstin and George have both been busy, lending their writing and producing talents to other artists. Kurstin worked on the latest Foster The People album and makes appearances on new albums by Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Dido, Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Cosgrove. George too has been busy, writing songs for singer/songwriter Priscilla Ahn's new album When You Grow Up.  Check out the video for "Love Letter To Japan," off the band's sophomore album, Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future.

Hot Video Alert: Calvin Harris feat. Kelis - Bounce

Love me some Calvin Harris. Love me some Kelis. Love me some Calvin Harris & Kelis. "Bounce" is the second single to be taken from Harris' upcoming third studio album. The song premiered on Annie Mac's show on Radio 1 back at the end of April and features hot remixes from Michael Woods, R3Hab, Sandro Silva and Fly Eye. Following his last single, "Awooga," "Bounce" continues to showcase Harris as a producer and DJ as promised, stepping back from singing on his own tracks. While I've always loved everything about Harris (including his vocals) I absolutely LOVE me some Kelis so the fact that Harris isn't singing doesn't bother me in the slightest.  It's nice to see Harris collaborating with electro diva Kelis on his new album.  I absolutely LOVED his remix of her single "4th of July (Fireworks)."

The "Bounce" video was directed by Vincent Haycock (Cheryl Cole, HIM) and features Kelis looking hot, showing up halfway through the video and doing her thing, rocking a glittery Cleopatra headdress of some kind.  The beginning of the video features a girl breaking up with her hip-hop-dancing boyfriend, telling him to "BOUNCE."  The video follows the broken up boyfriend living it up in Vegas, dancing with Elvis, hookin' up with girls and partying like a crazy fool.  The night culminates with said boy showing up at a club where Calvin Harris just happens to be spinning and passing out afterwards in a drunken heap. I sure to love me a good alcohol and sex-fueled music video.  Download "Bounce" when it's released in the UK on June 12th via Fly Eye/Columbia/Sony.
