L7 have shared a two song single, where the A-side is a cover of Joan Jett’s “Fake Friends” featuring Jett herself, and the B-side is a slowed-down rework of “Burn Baby” called “Witchy Burn.”
The new single package was originally planned for release around L7’s New Zealand and Australian tour in May, which was cancelled because of the spread of COVID-19.
“When the tour got cancelled due to this horrible virus, we decided to release the tracks as a way to keep our fans’ spirits up a bit, as well as our own,” Donita Sparks explains of the track. “New material gets everyone excited and happy and maybe gets them dancing around their cribs. That’s something positive the band can do for our fans in these uncertain times. When rock n’ roll duty calls, L7 answers.”
