Joan Jett’s New Album

On the same day she was honored by the Sunset Strip Music Festival, Joan Jett and Blackheart Records officially announced the October 1 release of her new album Unvarnished. The press statement follows:

 

Rock ‘n Roll Icon Joan Jett Announces First New Music In Almost A Decade

 

New Album Unvarnished To Be Released October 1

 

First single “Any Weather” Will Have Television Debut August 8 on Jimmy Kimmel Live at 11:35pm/10:35pm CT on ABC

 

 

 

[unvarnishedcover]Hot on the heels of being honored at this year’s Sunset Strip Music Festival and the City of West Hollywood’s official proclamation of August 1 as “Joan Jett Day,” the rock n roll icon is set to release her first CD of all original music in more than seven years.  Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will release their 14th studio album Unvarnished October 1 on the Blackheart Records label.  The album features ten original tracks and a Deluxe Edition will feature four additional bonus tracks.  The first single, “Any Weather” will make its television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on August 8th.   To coincide with the television debut, the single will be available August 6th via iTunes preorder at http://www.itunes.com<http://www.itunes.com>.

 

 

 

Jett has said that Unvarnished is the most autobiographical project she’s ever done, allowing some of life’s hardest passages, such as the loss of both her parents, dictate what she wrote about. The album also broadens to other subjects, such as applauding the determination of Hurricane Sandy’s victims and lighthearted commentary on today’s trend of oversharing.  Jett expanded her creative process to work with musicians like Dave Grohl and Against Me’s Laura Jane Grace, as well as continuing her work with longtime writing partner Kenny Laguna.  “It’s a real band album. Everybody was involved,” she says.  For more information, visit http://www.joanjett.com<http://www.joanjett.com>
