An extra guest has joined Dirty Heads‘ “Vacation.”

The reggae rockers have released a new version of their 2017 single featuring guest vocals from Train‘s Pat Monahan. As for why a four-year old song is getting a collaborative update now, the original track has been exploding on TikTok over the past year, thanks to the “Vacation Challenge” trend.

“We are so impressed with how fans, new and old, have taken this song and made it their own on social media,” says Dirty Heads. “Thank you to Pat Monahan for hopping on this new version — it is a gift to everyone who has made us smile with their ‘Vacation challenge’ videos over the past year.”

“I’ve been a Dirty Heads fan for a long time and my whole family has loved this song since it came out,” adds Monahan. “Getting a chance to sing on it was really cool for all of us and I think it made me a much cooler human.”

Dirty Heads will hit the road this summer on a co-headlining tour alongside Sublime with Rome. The outing is set to kick in July, and will run through mid-October.
