“Hi-De-Ho” appears on Fear of the Dawn, a “really hard” rock record due out April 8th on the artist’s own Third Man Records. The song opens with White playing the song’s signature riff on guitar, before wailing in a way that evokes a call to prayer. After this extended introduction, White comes thumping in with the hardest bass line this side of “Seven Nation Army,” as Q-Tip spins out a stream of consciousness verse riffing on the words, “Hi-de-hi-de-ho with me.”
“Queen of the Bees,” meanwhile, previews Entering Heaven Alive, a “very mellow” acoustic LP that arrives July 22nd. The playful track finds White singing over a shuffling guitar riff, “I feel lonely/ When I’m left all alone/ I feel homely/ When you leave me at home.” Check out both songs below.
So far, White has previewed Fear of the Dawn with “Taking Me Back” and its title track, and offered a look at Entering Heaven Alive with “Love Is Selfish.” Apart from their separate albums (which you can pre-order here and here), “Hi-De-Ho” and “Queen of the Bees” will be pressed on a limited edition, tri-color 7″ that will be available exclusively at Third Man Records’ Cass Corridor location in Detroit on April 9th.
