Just days after the City of West Hollywoods first official Joan Jett Day, the rock ‘n roll icon’s new single, Any Weather is now available on iTunes. The single is the first track to be released off her upcoming album Unvarnished, which will be released October 1st.
The album features ten original tracks and a Deluxe Edition will feature four additional bonus tracks. To coincide with the release of the single, “Any Weather” will make its television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on August 8th at 11:35pm/10:35pm CT on ABC. The single can be accessed directly on iTunes here.
Jett has said that Unvarnished is the most introspective album she’s ever done. While still keeping to her signature sound, Jett observes her own life as well as life around her. From applauding the determination of Hurricane Sandy’s victims to lighthearted commentary on today’s trend of over-sharing, the album touches a variety of subjects.
Jett expanded her creative process to work with musicians Dave Grohl and Against Me!s Laura Jane Grace, as well as Blackhearts guitarist Dougie Needles and drummer Thommy Price. In addition, Jett has continued her work with longtime writing partner/producer, Kenny Laguna. “Its a real band album. Everybody was involved,” she says.
