Rock and roll icon Joan Jett and her band The Blackhearts have released their new single and music video “Whiskey Goes Good,” a celebration of life’s ups and downs. The track is featured on the band’s latest digital EP, “Mindsets,” released in June on Jett’s independent record label, Blackheart Records.
“It goes good with the hard times and good with the bad times / Good with the fun times and good with the sad times,” Jett sings in the song’s chorus. “So always remember when ya done all ya could, that whiskey don’t go bad.”
“Mindsets” is a blend of punk and rock and roll that feels timeless and immediate at once, serving as a reminder of what Joan Jett And The Blackhearts are all about. Regarding the lyrical themes of the 6 songs in the EP, Joan said: “The last several years have been tough ones on the whole world. These songs reflect the various ‘mindsets’ needed to make it through the day, the week, the year, or the next minute. It’s a way to feel more connected to that big, beautiful, scary world out there, and in your head. The Blackhearts and I had an incredible experience writing, rehearsing, and recording these songs. Dougie Needles, our guitar player, created great songs from which we built out the EP.”
