Sir Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones has released a new track titled “Eazy Sleazy” which he recorded with Foo Fighters frontman/guitarist Dave Grohl. Jagger, who himself has already been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, described the track as a ‘piss-take on conspiracy theories’.

Speaking with Rollingstone on how the track came together, Jagger offered:

“I wrote the lyrics really quickly: Just the pandemic and hopefully coming out of the pandemic; the-light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel chorus. It sounded really good and I thought, ‘You gotta put it out now because it’s not gonna be any good in three or six months.’ I said, ‘I’d love to do it with someone really great and is working from home.’

I knew Dave and [Foo Fighters] just put out an album so I knew he got that out of the way. I phoned Dave up and said, ‘Dave, would you be interested?’ He said [puts on American accent], ‘Yeah, I’m really bored!’ ‘You just put an album out.’ ‘I’m really bored! I want to do it. I want to work!’ I said, ‘Fine, I’ll send you the song.’ It was all done quite quickly. Dave likes it ’cause it rocks hard. I like to rock hard, too, so it feels good in that way.”

As for his inspiration for the track, Jagger offered:

“I wrote most of the music first with some of the lyrics and then I just went and filled in the blanks. But yeah, it’s a reflection on the last year; the physical and mental strains put on society. The whole year, we’ve been doing this and going through different emotions through it and having false starts and stops and openings and closings.

[Laughs] End of last summer, everything seemed to be going well and people were out and about and great and then, especially in Europe, everything’s shut down again and you haven’t had any kind of social interaction. It’s a long time for people to have to endure that. [Also] the deep psychological ramifications of it on people and children not going to school and not socializing. We don’t know what they’re really going to be [long-term].”

“It’s hard to put into words what recording this song with Sir Mick Jagger 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!!”
