Listen: Joan Jett covers T. Rex’s ‘Jeepster’

A T. rex tribute album is set for release on September 4

Joan Jett is the latest to release a song for the tribute compilation AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan And T.Rex.

The compilation, which is set for release on September 4th, will feature T.Rex covers from U2 (featuring Elton John), Joan Jett, Father John Misty, Lucinda Williams, Kesha, Perry Farrell, Todd Rundgren, Metric’s Emily Haines, Devendra Banhart, King Khan, and more. A few months ago, we were gifted Nick Cave’s rendition of T.Rex’s 1971 Electric Warrior track “Cosmic Dancer.”

Jett’s rendition of “Jeepster” stays true to the original, aside from Jett’s quintessential raspy sneer.
