    Joan Jett loves rock 'n' roll so much that despite a seven-year itch between albums, she'll be back with a new on in October. Joan Jett & the Blackhearts will release their 14th studio album Unvarnished on October 1 on the Blackheart Records label.

    The album features 10 original tracks and a Deluxe Edition will feature four additional bonus tracks.

    Owwwwww! [Insert Joan Jett scream here].

    Jett has said that Unvarnished is the most autobiographical project she's ever done, allowing some of life's hardest passages, such as the loss of both her parents, dictate what she wrote about.

    The album also broadens to other subjects, such as applauding the determination of Hurricane Sandy's victims and lighthearted commentary on today's trend of oversharing. Jett expanded her creative process to work with musicians like Dave Grohl and Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace , as well as continuing her work with longtime writing partner Kenny Laguna. "It's a real band album. Everybody was involved," she says.
