Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl have joined forces for the new track, titled, “Eazy Sleazy,” which spotlights life during the pandemic. The song, which was co-written by the two, features Jagger on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Grohl supplying drums, lead guitar, backing vocals and bass. “Easy Sleazy” was produced by Jagger's longtime collaborator and Rolling Stones live keyboardist, Matt Clifford.
Grohl spoke about the new tune to Rolling Stone and explained, “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!!”
We caught up with Mick Jagger during the Stones' last bunch of road dates, and he explained to us that keeping a firm toehold in the pop and entertainment world has always been an important element of his — and the band's — career: “I like to stay in the game, y’know? I think that’s part of it, y’know? The Rolling Stones, it’s like, you have to be still doing it, but to make it exciting for yourself and everyone else. Y’know, I never wanted it to be, like, overtly over trend following, or things like that. You’ve got to be true to yourself and stuff. I just think, by definition, if you’re in popular music, then you better be in it — not just going up your own ego, or own alley. I think you’ve got to tip your hat to what interests you and what’s going on.”
