Rock n’ roll icon JOAN JETT & her Blackhearts have unveiled the anticipated official music video for the single “Any Weather,” which comes via hernewly released album Unvarnished.

Joan is fresh off the heels of her surprise performance at iHeartRadio Festival and her intimate record release show at Santos Party House in NYC. The new video – directed by Kevin Kerslake – was shot in Los Angeles, CA, and showcases a never-before-used camera technique to give the production a raw and classic aura.

“Embedding the theme of the video in the form of my approach, cinematically-speaking – my camera crew and I ripped apart two state of the art cameras, exposing their guts and effectively turning them into 21st Century versions of crude, antiquated devices,” explains director Kevin Kerslake on the unique filming techniques used during the video shoot. “They were the digital filmic equivalent of two tin cans and a piece of string.”

Joan 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 new 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, Joan has continued her work with longtime writing partner/producer, Kenny Laguna. “It’s a real band album. Everybody was involved,” explains Joan.

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 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 www.joanjett.com
