26-SONG COLLECTION ANGELHEADED HIPSTER: THE SONGS OF MARC BOLAN AND T. REX OUT SEPTEMBER 4 ON BMG

 

Joan Jett has released her interpretation of the T. Rex hit “Jeepster,” from the star-studded Hal Willner-produced collection Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan and T. Rex, out September 4 on BMG.  Jett delivers a stunning tribute to her teenage idol, harkening back to her formative years on the Sunset Strip absorbing everything Bolan and T. Rex had to offer. For her reimagining of the standout track from the 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s chart-topping Electric Warrior albumJett is joined by a group of luminaries including Marc Ribot on guitar, Jim White on drums (PJ Harvey, Cat Power), Thomas Bartlett arranging and on piano (The National, Sufjan Stevens) and production by the late Hal Willner.

 

Watch the video for Joan Jett’s take on “Jeepster” here: 

“Jeepster” is the fourth song to be released from Angelheaded Hipster, following Kesha’s “superstar vocals” (SPIN) on “Children of the Revolution,” Devendra Banhart’s “serene…trippy” (Rolling Stone) “Scenescof” and Nick Cave’s “gorgeous rendition” (Brooklyn Vegan) of “Cosmic Dancer.” Each of the 26 tracks on Angelheaded Hipster was produced by the acclaimed Hal Willner, who passed away from COVID-19 in April. Willner had previously served as the Saturday Night Live sketch music producer for nearly 40 years, produced albums for Lou Reed, Marianne Faithfull and William S. Burroughs, and concept albums drawing upon the music of Thelonious Monk, Kurt Weill, vintage Disney films and others.

 

For Angelheaded Hipster, Willner brought together a wide-ranging cast to reimagine Bolan’s greatest songs – Jett, Kesha, Banhart and Cave plus Marc Almond, Børns, Helga Davis, Perry Farrell, Elysian Fields, Gavin Friday, Emily Haines, Jesse Harris, King Khan, Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl, Maria McKee, Father John Misty, John Cameron Mitchell, Gaby Moreno, Nena, Beth Orton, Peaches, Todd Rundgren, Lucinda Williams, Victoria Williams With Julian Lennon and U2 Feat. Elton John.

 

Marc Bolan was a folk pop troubadour, Glam Rock’s metal guru, a pop star who burned as bright as any, a brilliant guitarist, style icon and poet. He has been famously cited as a major influence by some of the biggest names in music, from David Bowie to Johnny Marr. He died in 1977 aged just 29, after a car crash in London.
