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 is due out on October 1. It will be Jett’s 14th studio album with her band the Blackhearts. The singer and guitarist 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.
“It's a real band album. Everybody was involved,” Jett said in a press statement.
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will perform August 8 on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they'll debut "Any Weather," the first single from the album.
