Rock n' Roll icon Joan Jett will release her new album Unvarnished on October 1. The single entitled "Any Weather," featured on the new album will have its television debut August 8 on Jimmy Kimmel Live (11:35pm/10:35pm CT on ABC).

Jett has said that Unvarnished is the most autobiographical project she’s ever done, allowing some of life’s hardest passages, such as the loss of both her parents, dictate what she wrote about. The album also broadens to other subjects, such as applauding the determination of Hurricane Sandy’s victims and lighthearted commentary on today’s trend of oversharing.

Jett expanded her creative process to work with musicians like Dave Grohl and Against Me’s Laura Jane Grace, as well as continuing her work with longtime writing partner Kenny Laguna. "It’s a real band album. Everybody was involved," she says.
