If you know, you know! Ayron Jones delivered some of the nastiest guitar grooves in recent years on his Child of the state album, and with his first single since that breakthrough record, well, he’s going for something downright “dirty.”
“Filthy” is not only the song title, it’s also a perfect description of the bad man blues rock that Jones lays down on the track, and it’s something that he pays close attention to in the song’s lyrics. At one point, Jones boasts, “They don’t call me dope in my town / They call me dirty / I don’t need a judge to tell me I’m guilty.“
The singer says: “Where I come from, the word ‘Filthy’ is used as the highest compliment in the country. It means you’re so good at what you do and who you are that it should be a shame. It was , I had in mind when I started working on this song. I wanted to celebrate counterculture and promote pride in what it means to be considered ‘different’.”
At present, the song functions as a standalone single, although it is possible that a new album could be on the horizon after his 2021 Child of the state record made him a rock radio staple over the past few years. If you like the track, be sure to download it via your desired platform here.
Jones has dates booked for the fall in the US, while a European trek is planned to end his touring year. See all his stops and get ticket information here.
