Southern California alternative rock outfit DIRTY HEADS spent the summer touring across the U.S. on the headlining “Island Glow” tour and are excited to share a new live- recorded version of their hit single “John Linen” which features rapper Yelawolf who was featured as an opening act on the first leg of the tour. The single is out today across all digital platforms via Better Noise Music HERE along with a new music video featuring performance footage from the tour. Watch it streaming below or HERE.

“We were stoked to have Yelawolf on tour with us,” shares vocalist JARED WATSON. “He puts on a great show and knows how to have a good time. So, we invited him up to run a verse and he delivered a moment that was one of the highlights of the show and tour.”

“It was such an honor sharing the stage with Yelawolf, he absolutely murdered this verse,” says guitarist DUDDY B. “I'm glad we were able to capture this moment live for y’all.”

YELAWOLF remarks: “Jared and Duddy really looked out for me on the tour we rocked together. Dirty Heads became instant fam and when the opportunity came to jump on ‘John Linen’ I was all over it! The song fuckin' slaps...these dudes know their shit and I’m a snob about hip hop, especially…if I don’t vibe I’m out. This song, however, I was psyched to be a part of! Looking forward to more collaborations with the Dirty Heads!”

The original version of “John Linen” featured Alex Vince and Ivuss (aka pro surfer Ivy Miller) and was released in April. The single has since accumulated 78.5 million streams and its lyric video has 478K views. It is also featured on the deluxe edition of their critically acclaimed 2022 album, MIDNIGHT CONTROL, out now via Better Noise Music, and includes 13 new tracks with acoustic versions of hit songs “Rescue Me”—which spent the entire month of August at #1 on the Alternative radio charts—“Life’s Been Good,” and “Island Glow,” three Lo-Fi versions of album tracks and three previously unreleased songs.
