Big B Singled Out Week: Hangovers With You featuring The Dirty Heads

Big B releases his brand new studio album "Fool's Gold" this week and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about some of his favorite songs from the album. Today he tells us about "Hangovers With You" featuring The Dirty Heads:

I had been friends with The Dirty Heads for about a decade, dating way back to the days when I was still playing with OPM and doing shows together. We had always talked about making music together, so when it came time to do this record I called them up just as they were coming off tour with Matisyahu, which was perfect timing.

We had been going back and forth for a while, but they called and said they had some free time to work together. I had this part already written that I really liked and Jared had a part that he wrote that eventually became the hook, so we put them together and it eventually became "Hangovers With You".

Duddy B from Dirty Heads did a verse on the track, and the cool thing about him is that he never writes anything down. He just goes into the booth and records it, so it was pretty amazing to watch him work. My producer Jim Perkins built the track up and then Duddy came back in to record some guitar parts over it.

The cool part is that the guys in Dirty Heads didn't really know what I was up to with it, and when they heard the album they were super impressed with it. About a week later, I got a phone call saying that they were going to put me into the mix for their upcoming summer tour and a week later I got the call that I was going out on tour with them and The Expendables.

For me, it was the biggest pay off ever to have them hear the music I was working on and invite me out on tour with them. It's a honor to get a chance to play with them, and at the same time I get to hang with my friends all summer.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
