Joan Jett will release new music for the first time since 2006 with a 10-song album featuring contributions from Dave Grohl and Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! “Unvarnished” drops October 1st.
It will be Jett’s 14th studio album with the Blackhearts. She says it’s the most autobiographical work she’s done, with songs about the death of her parents and about topics including the victims of Hurricane Sandy and the modern tendency to overshare online.
She and the Blackhearts will perform next week on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they’ll debut the first single, ”Any Weather.”
