AUDIO: Nickelback cover Don Henley classic Dirty Laundry

Nickelback are streaming a cover of Don Henley’s 1982 classic, “Dirty Laundry.”

The Canadian rockers recently recorded the tune during sessions for the follow-up to 2014's “No Fixed Address.”

“Sometimes you play a song in the studio just for fun,” says the band. “And sometimes it’s so fun you have to record and share it with everyone.”

“Dirty Laundry” was the second single from Henley’s solo debut, “I Can’t Stand Still.” The song reached No. 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Nickelback are returning to live action when they launch a European tour in Helsinki, Finland on September 2.

The 2-month trek will mark the first extended series of concerts since the group was forced to cancel 2015 tours when singer Chad Kroeger underwent surgery to remove a cyst on his voice box that required an extended period of vocal rest as ordered by doctors.

Nickelback are suing Lloyd’s Of London for $13 million after the company refused to pay insurance on the cancelled tours by claiming that Kroeger’s condition was pre-existing and, as a result, not covered by their policy.
