Joan Jett Strips Down 1981 Classic For New Album: Look + Listen

Preempting the new Joan Jett & the Blackhearts’ album Changeup, Joan Jett strips down her 1981 song “(I’m Gonna) Run Away” for the latest single from their first-ever acoustic LP.

Due out digitally March 25 with a vinyl version to follow, Changeup features 25 reimagined songs from Jett’s catalog complete with acoustic instruments. The thinner take on I Love Rock ’n Roll’s “(I’m Gonna) Run Away” kicks off the collection, that also includes new versions of “Crimson & Clover,” the Runaways’ “Cherry Bomb,” and an acoustic “Bad Reputation,” which Jett first unveiled in 2021.

Earlier this year, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame teamed with Epiphone for the Joan Jett Olympic Special, a model inspired by the rocker’s longtime Gibson Melody Maker, with the musician saying:

“What attracted me to guitar was just being able to make that kind of noise and have control over it.” “So when we were talking about releasing my new Epiphone Signature guitar, it had to have my sound.”
