Rock n’ roll icon JOAN JETT is currently streaming her entire new album Unvarnished at USAToday.com. The album is set for release on September 30th via Blackheart Records, and is her first full-length album since 2006’s Sinner. In addition to streaming her new album, Joan has also announced the details for her surprise record release show at Santos Party House in NYC, which will take place on Wednesday, October 2nd. Limited tickets will go on sale tomorrow – Thursday, September 26th, at 12pm EDT.
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.
