Glass Animals have shared a new version of their 2020 track ‘Heat Waves’ featuring iann dior – listen below.

The original version of the track appeared on the Oxford band’s third album ‘Dreamland’, and has steadily been climbing the charts since, currently sitting at Number One in Australia.

The new version of ‘Heat Waves’ comes complete with a glossy extra verse from dior, the Puerto Rican-born, Texas-raised 21-year-old rapper who released his debut album ‘Industry Plant’ at the end of 2019.

Last week, Glass Animals announced rescheduled dates for their 2021 UK tour behind ‘Dreamland’, which features a huge London gig at Alexandra Palace.

iann dior, meanwhile, recently shared a performance for NME Home Sessions, running through renditions of ‘Flowers’ and ‘Holding On’ – watch the full set above.

Speaking to NME last year, he discussed his debut album ‘Industry Plant’, saying: “I love that project. I think that, from the name to the music, it was a statement because everybody around me was calling me an industry plant, and that I wasn’t a real artist.
