Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are back with a new single, “Fresh Start.” The track was recorded exclusively for the soundtrack of her upcoming documentary “Bad Reputation.” Check out the song below, courtesy of YouTube.
This is Jett’s first release since 2013, and it’s a personal one too. Talking to “Entertainment Weekly,” the rocker says it’s all about finding inspiration as an aging rock n’ roll singer.
“Sometimes you need to say to yourself, ‘Am I still enjoying what I’m doing? I need to find the fire again,” she explains. “As rock and rollers get older, what do they write about? I’m not sure there’s an answer but we’re looking for it.”
“Bad Reputation” hits theaters on September 28th. The soundtrack will be released the same day, available for pre-order on Amazon. Fans can catch Jett live on September 15th in Pomona, California at the Los Angeles County Fair along with Cheap Trick.
