Joan Jett Releases New Song Ahead of Forthcoming Documentary
The new Joan Jett documentary, Bad Reputation, arrives in theaters on Sept. 28, and the iconic rocker is releasing a new track from the forthcoming soundtrack.
The song–“Fresh Start”–is a hard rocking song that offers wisdom from Jett’s point of view.
“So you say you’re not satisfied and you want a bigger piece of pie,” she sings. “take my advice don’t hesitate, before you know it, it will be too late.”
“Sometimes you need to say to yourself, ‘Am I still enjoying what I’m doing? I need to find the fire again,’” Jett said of the song, which is her first release in five years, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Part of it was just thinking about rock in general. It’s always been a young person’s game, writing about sex, love and partying. 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.”
