Beck has teamed up with The Bird and The Bee's Inara George and Greg Kurstin for a cover of Van Halen's 1984 classic "Hot for Teacher."

The song will feature on the band's upcoming album Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen, to be released on August 2.

The album, produced by Kurstin, features guest musicians including Justin Meldal-Johnsen and drummers Joey Waronker and Omar Hakim.

"The Bird and The Bee bring unforeseen angles to the Van Halen song book. Makes sense because, like Eddie Van Halen, Greg is a kind of musical wunderkind in his own right and Inara's vocals bring a cool counterpart to Diamond Dave's pyrotechnics," said Beck, who plays the role of the teacher, Mr. Goodbody.

"Making a cameo on their version of 'Hot for Teacher' felt like an extension of the kind of riffing and fooling around we do in the studio on a normal session," he added.
