Image Credit: Brigitte Sire When multi-instrumentalist and producer Greg Kurstin (he’s worked with everyone from Britney and Kylie to Lily Allen and Little Boots) and singer-songwriter Inara George, a.k.a. indie-pop duo The Bird and the Bee, take on a covers album, they aim high. Like, Hall & Oates high.

The third full-length from the duo (dog in pic not included) will be the faux-loftily titled Interpreting the Masters, Vol. 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall & John Oates, featuring their take on H&O classics like “Maneater,” “Rich Girl,” “Private Eyes” and the exclusive-to-EW ballad “Sarah Smile.” Stream it below, two weeks before the official March 23 release date:

Did they master the Masters? Tell us in the comments section, below.
