Mick Jagger on Tuesday unveiled 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 Jagger in lockdown features him on vocals and guitar in collaboration with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl providing his signature powerhouse drums, guitar and bass.
A press release stated, “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 humor. 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.”
A performance video clip for “Eazy Sleazy” features Jagger at home and Grohl in the Foo Fighters studio. “Eazy Sleazy,” produced by Matt Clifford, is available via YouTube and social platforms.
Jagger 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’ ”
Grohl said, “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!”
