Here’s a nice little surprise for a Tuesday morning: A new single from Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl titled Eazy Sleazy. A decent cross of chunky Rolling Stones arena-rock and old-school British punk a la Sex Pistols, with Sir Mick bitching about life in lockdown. Watch it above and read the official bumpf below.
THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Mick Jagger unveils an exciting surprise for his fans worldwide in the form of the instant release of a track titled Eazy Sleazy. The hard-rocking tune written by Mick in lockdown features Jagger on vocals & guitar in collaboration with Foo Fighters main man Dave Grohl providing his signature powerhouse drums, guitar and bass too.
The infectious Eazy Sleazy is every inch a song of our times, full of caged energy, a rock ‘n’ roll attitude and tongue in cheek, satirical messaging. MJ muses about the life we’ve all been living with deliciously dark sardonic humour. He reflects on a world of ‘zoom calls’, ‘home in these prison walls’, poncey books, fake applause and too much TV. With optimism and change in sight he looks forward to the world beyond lockdown and the “garden of earthly delights” that lies beyond. The performance video clip for Eazy Sleazy features Jagger at home & Grohl in the Foo Fighters studio.
Mick commented: “It’s a song that I wrote about coming out of lockdown, with some much needed optimism. Thanks to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass and guitar, it was a lot of fun working with him. Hope you all enjoy Eazy Sleazy.”
Dave commented: “It’s hard to put into words what recording this song with Sir Mick means to me. It’s beyond a dream come true. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any crazier … and it’s the song of the summer, without a doubt!!”
