Mick Jagger, Dave Grohl team up for pandemic-inspired track

Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl have teamed up for a hard-rock pandemic anthem called Eazy Sleazy.

“It’s a song that I wrote about coming out of lockdown, with some much needed optimism,” Jagger said in a statement Tuesday. “Thanks to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass and guitar. It was a lot of fun working with him.”

The duo recorded the song and video  in different studio locations — Jagger at home and Grohl in the Foo Fighters studio — and the lyrics mention “prison walls,” “virtual premieres,” numbers that are “grim” and Zoom calls. Jagger complains: “I’ve got nothing left to wear.”

The song also name-checks Bill Gates, lampoons conspiracy theories and those who deny climate change and gleefully reveals “There’s aliens in the deep state.”

But there seems to be hope. Jagger looks ahead and sees a “garden of earthly delights” when vaccines are administered and lockdown ends.

“Everything’s gonna get really freaky/Alright on the night/Soon it’ll be a memory/You’re trying to remember to forget,” Jagger croons.

Grohl, meanwhile, said recording the song with Jagger was “beyond a  dream come true.”

“Just when I thought life couldn’t get any crazier … it’s  the song of the summer, without a doubt!” he said.
