The All-American Rejects New Single ‘Beekeeper’s Daughter’ Out January 24th

The All-American Rejects sitting

will kick off 2012 with the release of ‘Beekeeper’s Daughter’ – the band’s first single since ‘Gives You Hell’ became the No. 1 most-played song of 2009 at Top 40 radio. Written by Rejects’ lead singer, lyricist, and bassist Tyson Ritter and guitarist Nick Wheeler, the track, available digitally on January 24th, captures a tumultuous time while Ritter was living in Los Angeles after wrapping two years of touring behind the band’s 2008 album ‘When The World Comes Down’.

“‘Beekeeper’s Daughter’ is a story about a guy who thinks he can get away with anything and always have a girl there waiting for him,” Ritter said. “He never backs down from that opinion. At the end of it, he’s even stronger and more snide and thinks he’s invincible no matter what. He’s an a-hole, but at that point in my life, I was kind of an a-hole. As we were making ‘Kids in the Street’, I went from that to being a completely humbled guy who’s looking at his reflection saying, ‘Wow, what have I done?’ It may make me not seem very likeable, but it was important that I be truthful and really open up on this album about what I’ve been through.'”

‘Beekeeper’s Daughter’, along with the rest of the tracks on ‘Kids In The Street’, was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Greg Wells, who is known for his work with Adele, Katy Perry, and OneRepublic, among many others. “Greg was the first producer we’ve worked with who really spoke my language, which translated into the sound of the album,” Ritter explained. “If you really want to know what ‘Kids In The Street’ sounds like, it sounds like The All-American Rejects finally got their sh** together and wrote a record that was going to keep them around.”
