Excerpt from music.yahoo.com:
The iconic star released her first collection of new music in close to a decade, “Unvarnished,” at the end of last month, and there’s no sign one of rock’s edgiest gals has lost a bit of her sharpness. So what has Jett been up to since we’ve heard from her last?
Well, for a start, there’s Yahoo Music’s exclusive premiere of the “Any Weather” video for your perusal. This particular song was co-written with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl — a collaboration Jett has said she’d been longing to do for some time — and the two recorded it in his studio.
While the lyrics may sound like a typical ode to sticking with a romantic relationship (“We can stay together/through any weather”), the son actually, according to the singer, carries an eco-friendly message that Jett calls “a love song to the Earth.” The theme is supported by the stunning visuals of beautiful global scenery, juxtaposed with more menacing images of devastation and pollution. With Jett rocking her way through it all.
“It touches on a lot of subject matter that a lot of people can relate to,” Jett told Yahoo Music last month, who also told Billboard that the devastation of 2012’s Hurricane Sandy contributed to her lyrical ideas. She noted that upon entering Grohl’s studio, he hopped on drums, she hopped on guitar, and “it just flowed out.”
Excerpt from guitarworld.com:
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts have premiered a music video for “Any Weather,” a track off their new album, Unvarnished.
The video, which was directed by Kevin Kerslake, was shot in Los Angeles and showcases a new camera technique, which gives the production a raw, classic aura.
“Embedding the theme of the video in the form of my approach, cinematically speaking, my camera crew and I ripped apart two state-of-the-art cameras, exposing their guts and effectively turning them into 21st century versions of crude, antiquated devices,” Kerslake says. “They were the digital filmic equivalent of two tin cans and a piece of string.”
