Rolling Stones legend Sir Mick Jagger has teamed up with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl for a lockdown-themed song written by the Stones’ front-man.
Easy Sleazy features the performer on vocals and lead guitar, backed by Grohl on drums, bass and backing guitar with a video showing them both performing remotely in separate studios.
Sir Mick teamed up with Grohl for the singer after he said he believed his adaptability has helped him "roll with the punches" through the uncertainty. And that optimism had extended to his music, including the surprise - remote - lockdown collaboration with the Foo Fighters' star.
Easy Sleazy, which features the performer on vocals and lead guitar, backed by Grohl on drums, bass and backing guitar with a video released alongside the song showing both stars performing the track remotely in what looks to be separate studios.
The track references Zoom calls, "football's fake applause" and "stupid" TikTok dances, as well as dealing with anti-vaxxers.
Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, Jagger, 77, said: "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. The deep psychological ramifications of it on people and children not going to school and not socialising.
“We don't know what they're really going to be." On the track he hits out at anti-vaxxers, saying; "They don't get it."
Their track which is out now attempts to provide a sardonic and humorous take on coming out of lockdown, at least in the UK, as Jagger reflects on a year of "crazy" Covid lifestyle changes, big and small - including the fight against misinformation.
