Dirty Honey has served up a new track from their upcoming self-titled debut album.
Embedded below is “Tied Up,” the second track preview from Dirty Honey, which comes out on April 23 and features eight new songs from the L.A.-based band. It follows the album's lead single “California Dreamin'” that dropped earlier this month and was the first piece of new music from the band since 2019.
As previously reported, the band had been hard at work on the album throughout 2020, despite the pandemic. Back in June, Dirty Honey shared a video of how they were working with producer Nick DiDia via Zoom, with the band based in Los Angeles and DiDia based in Australia. Dirty Honey was originally slated to fly to Australia to work with DiDia in person, but the pandemic derailed those plans.
Despite the pandemic influencing how they were able to work, don’t expect the tracks from Dirty Honey to reflect much of 2020.
Frontman Marc Labelle told Rolling Stone, “I have to say, it was a rather uninspiring time to be making a record. I’ve been sitting in my apartment for the last six months; I haven’t really seen or done anything with anybody. You’re trying to write songs about relationships or the state of the world, but you haven’t really experienced anything like that in so long. I consciously tried to stay away from writing about the pandemic, I just didn’t think that anybody would want to be reminded of it when this was all over. It’s tough when you’re not living a life to write about life.”
