Dirty Honey, one of the hottest new bands in rock today, offer up a brand new Amazon Original, a soul-and-swagger-filled cover of Aerosmith‘s “Last Child,” written by Steven Tyler and Brad Whitford and originally released on the iconic band’s 1976 album, Rocks. Click HERE to check out Dirty Honey’s cover version, available now only on Amazon Music.
Dirty Honey recorded the track on December 21 at the historic RCA Studio B in Nashville, TN, the same studio where The King of Rock & Roll himself, Elvis Presley, recorded more than 250 songs. Six-time Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, John Prine, and the Lady Gaga/”A Star Is Born” six-million selling “Always Remember Us This Way”) produced the track. Fans can go HERE to check out the in-studio, behind-the-scenes video footage of the recording, as well as Labelle discussing the track, Dirty Honey’s connection to Aerosmith, and working with Cobb.
Said Labelle, “Aerosmith has been a huge influence on our band, and ‘Last Child’ is a staple in our live set, so to be tipping our hat to the band is really special. Plus, we’re all big fans of the way Dave makes records. He does it live, he tracks live, he does minimal overdubs, and we love that. Our goal has always been to make music that has soul, that has a live feel, and has a performance element to it instead of perfectly in-tune vocals and perfectly played guitar solos. That’s our philosophy for everything we do, we’re trying to capture performance, not perfection.”
Dirty Honey are currently on the first leg of its 2020 “Rolling 7s” North American tour. The 25-date, coast-to-coast trek kicks off in Austin, TX at The Parish and wraps up six weeks later on February 28 at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. Hotly-tipped UK rock outfit The Amazons will open on all dates. The itinerary is below; for all ticketing and VIP information, go to https://www.dirtyhoney.com
