'Unvarnished' is the brand new album by legendary rocker, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. The first album of all new music released in almost a decade, 'Unvarnished' is Jett's 14th studio album and includes 14 tracks.
Jett 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 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, Jett has continued her work with longtime writing partner/producer, Kenny Laguna. "It’s a real band album. Everybody was involved," she says.
