A song written by KISS’s Paul Stanley and Jean Beauvoir, has just come out of storage to see the light of day from Eurovision Song Contest winners and Finland’s finest shock rockers Lordi.
Beauvoir, who is known for working with names such as Bruce Springsteen, The Ramones and of course KISS, has had the song collecting dust in a desk drawer ever since the end of the 1980s.
Now, ‘Like A Bee To The Honey‘ is finally released, as not only the latest single from Lordi, but also featuring an appearance from Hanoi Rocks legend Michael Monroe.
“This is a tremendous honour to a band that wouldn’t even exist without KISS. Simply having the privilege to listen to a song from the 1980s that no fan has ever heard before… And then to get to be the artist that brings the song for everyone to hear – It is mind-blowing,” said band frontman Mr. Lordi.
Mr. Lordi, along with the band’s guitarist Amen had been making songs together with Jean Beauvoir as a trio, and one of these songs, ‘Scream Demon’, made its way to the new album Killection. It was during these songwriting sessions in Helsinki that the very existence of ‘Like A Bee To The Honey’ came up.
Beauvoir thought the song would fit the new record perfectly, and the band was more than ready to get this rare gem on their album. The song made even more unique by the introduction of the band’s first recorded saxophone solo, courtesty of the aforementioned Michael Monroe.
Lordi have released their new lyric video for single ‘Like A Bee To The Honey‘, a track written by Paul Stanley/Jean Beauvoir.
