Dirty Heads have revealed the official video for ‘Celebrate‘, whichfeatures The Unlikely Candidates and is the second single off the band’s new album SWIM TEAM (out now on Five Seven Music).
Currently #1 MOST ADDED at Alternative Radio in the US, ‘Celebrate’ juxtaposes joy and nostalgia with beguiling alternative pop and lyrical honesty. The emotional heart of the record, the song tells the story of a touring band living their dream while simultaneously longing for home and the families they’ve left behind.
Dirty Heads’ Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell comments, “It’s a look inside a band and touring as well as the journey you take to make it. We’re not bitching about anything, but you’re on the road and you miss your family. We all started doing this a while ago. None of us were married at the time. None of us had kids. Now it’s all different.”
The video, directed by Wayne Isham (Metallica, Foo Fighters, Michael Jackson), features an evocative band performance as real family photos and home footage are projected on and around them. Dirty Heads will be revealing additional behind-the-scenes content, personal interviews and more from the making of this video in the coming weeks.
‘Celebrate’ follows the California quintet’s hit summer single ‘Vacation‘, which went Top-10 at Alternative Radio and was the # 1 Most Added at Alternative Radio for two straight weeks upon its release.
Both tracks are taken from SWIM TEAMwhich sees Dirty Heads pushing their sound, moving between pop, alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock with the same spirit and spark that’s powered them since the beginning.
The album’s wide-ranging sound is also due in part to the diverse team of collaborators: Jonas Jeberg [Demi Lovato, Juicy J, Jason Derulo], Blueprint [Jay-Z, Kanye West, Timbaland, Eminem, Nas, Prodigy], Oren Yoel [Miley Cyrus, Kanye West], HEAVY [Andrew McMahon], and The Score.
