Dirty Heads Release SUPER MOON Today
The 10-track album sweeps you away into a world of chill vibes and a nostalgic reggae influence with an alternative rock sound and feel. The Dirty Heads signature sound is all over this feature release, yet one of their timeless and most accessible music yet. In celebration, the band reveals their new video for the melodic song "Fear and Love," written about the irony that both are connected instead of opposites.
Super Moon was produced by four-time Grammy®-winning Nashville, Tennessee-based super producer Dave Cobb (A Star is Born soundtrack, Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson). It features summer anthem song "Lift Me Up,""a classic Dirty Heads weed song," says Jared Watson, and the title track, "Super Moon," which he describes as "a 70's sci-fi kung fu Western car chase soundtrack. It gives you a look into the sonics, tone, and creative narrative of this album." Watson continues, with a deep sense of pride, "It was all recorded live in the same room to tape in Studio A in the old RCA building in Nashville, Tennessee, where legends like Johnny Cash and Elvis recorded a lot of their work."
"Dave told us, 'It doesn't matter what's trending right now - f trends, f rules!'" laughs Jared. "I'm a perfectionist, I have high standards. All our albums, I end up happy with 50 percent. But I love every moment of Super Moon. You can hear our confidence as songwriters and performers. We called on the spirits of Elvis and Johnny Cash to make this album, and when I hear it, I smile the biggest I've ever smiled."
