It’s 2013, which means we haven’t had officially released new music from Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in seven years. That may sound like a long time to wait, but it’s nothing compared to the TWELVE years we had to wait between 1994’s Pure and Simple and 2006’s Sinner.
Fortunately, The Blackhearts have been slowly unveiling new tracks for us at their live shows since 2011. The wait is nearly over! I THINK they are still planning to release something this year. *crosses fingers*
The cool thing about hearing new music like this is that we get to hear the way the songs evolve over time. If you find all the recordings of each of these songs on YouTube, you’ll find many instances where the lyrics have changed.
Here are the four new tracks I’ve heard so far. (Thank goodness for YouTube!) Pick your favorites in the poll at the bottom of the post.
