Joan Jett Announce New Solo Album Featuring Dave Grohl
27
Joan Jett announced first solo album in seven years, Consequence of Sound reports.

The record titled "Unvarished" is scheduled for release on October 1 and features guest appearances from Dave Grohl and Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace alongside with Joan's band the Blackhearts.

Rolling Stone reports that the album is Jett's most autobiographical work to date. The record will feature tracks about Hurricane Sandy and the death of Jett's parents.

"I'm in a different part of my life," Jett recently told the Modesto Bee. "The song's aren't all sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. There comes a time when you have to go through stuff. For me - this isn't very uplifting but I call it the decade of death, losing people, companion animals very close to me, my parents, really heavy things."

The first single is entitled "Any Weather," and Jett will debut the song on US chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live on August 8. In a statement, Jett commented: "It's a real band album. Everybody was involved."

    So if it's Joan Jett's solo album, featuring the Blackhearts...wouldn't that make it a Joan Jett and the Blackhearts album? PS, Joan Jett is hot as hell!

    Oh Cause being in the Foo Fighters and Them Crooked Vultures, despite a hell of a lot of guest spots in bands such as Tenacious D, QOTSA, NIN doesn't count. He's not my favorite modern musician, but you can't deny he's done a hell of a lot of work since Nirvana.

    I dislike Dave Grohl. Not a fan of Nirvana or Foo Fighters so that makes sense. I think he has a high and mighty ego though like "Yeah I've been in Foo Fighters and Nirvana. I'm sweet." Who the hell cares?

    Nah he actually doesn't. He's quite a humble man. Also, he was in Nirvana, TCV, Foo Fighters etc, so even if he wanted to say something like idk "I'm sweet" he damn sure can.

    Dave Grohl was stroking his goatee thoughtfully and said, Eureka, I haven't collaborated with miss Joan JETT yet... Heh then the rest of the foos or Sir Paul or JPJ and Josh or Jimmy Page or Trent or any other badass legend in the room laughed heartily and said, get er' boy! And Teh Almighty Gorhl thus bringeth forth another legend for 1 more round in the sun!
