Joan Jett Releasing First New Album In Seven Years
Joan Jett & The Blackhearts will issue their first new album in over seven years with the release of Varnished, according to Rolling Stone. The 10-track album, which is the followup to 2006's Sinner, will be released on October 1st and includes appearances by Dave Grohl and Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! The highly personal set will touch upon such weighty topics as "the death of (Jett's) parents. . . the victims of Hurricane Sandy and the modern tendency to overshare online." Look for Jett and the band on August 8th, when they perform the album's first single, "Any Weather," on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live.
 
Joan Jett feels that after all this time, there's too much novelty placed on the fact that female rockers exist in a male-based industry: "I don't find that there's any difference whether or not you're female or male -- that has nothing to do with whether or not you can play music! I mean, girls play cellos and violins in symphony orchestras -- so why can't a girl play a guitar? We try to put out the best values for kids to pick up on; hard work, y'know, determination, do what you believe in doing, don't let people push you around. Y'know, things like that."
