Honey Bee

Album: Let's Go Sunshine (2018)
  • "Honey Bee" features the voice of Kooks singer Luke Pritchard's late father, who died when he was a child. It came from a demo that his sister sent him of his father, singing which was recorded in the '60s or '70s. Pritchard told Billboard:

    "My dad died when I was a kid, so I never had the opportunity to sing with him, but we spliced his vocal. We have some computer programs now, and managed to clean up. I sing the first verse and he sings the second verse. That's quite a cool moment."
