Joan Jett And The Blackhearts Release New Single Fresh Start

Tuesday, 11 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have released a new single.

Fresh Start is the rock legend's first new material since the release of 'Unvarnished' in 2013. The song was written for the soundtrack to Bad Reputation, a documentary about Jett that is due out on September 28.

The track is Jett through and through: fast-paced punk rock with big chords and even bigger riffs. Lyrically it focuses on the importance in grabbing opportunities when you get the chance. "So you say you're not satisfied? And you wanna bigger piece of pie?" she sings. "Take my advice don't hesistate, before you know it it'll be too late."

Check out Fresh Start below, following its premiere with Entertainment Weekly.

We Got Lucky: Kevin Devine And Petal's Kiley Lotz Sculpt A Perfect Tribute To Tom Petty

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

Photo: Robin Pope Here’s a thing. Do you remember when Rod Stewart was cool? Probably not. It’s been over 40 years since Faces, the original lad-rockers, split. Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.
