Listen to Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl’s surprise new single ‘Eazy Sleazy’ 

Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl have joined forces for a new collaborative single, ‘Eazy Sleazy’ – you can listen to it below.

The surprise track from the Foo Fighters and The Rolling Stones frontmen was shared on YouTube this afternoon (April 13), having been penned by Jagger during the coronavirus-enforced lockdown.

Jagger provides vocals and plays guitar on the infectious rock team-up, with Grohl performing drums, guitar and bass.

‘Eazy Sleazy’ finds Jagger reference “zoom calls”, being “home in these prison walls”, fake applause and a “TikTok stupid dance”, while looking ahead to life post-COVID and the “garden of earthly delights” awaiting.

“It’s a song that I wrote about coming out of lockdown, with some much needed optimism,” Jagger explained. “Thanks to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass and guitar, it was a lot of fun working with him – hope you all enjoy ‘Eazy Sleazy’.”

Grohl added: “It’s hard to put into words what recording this song with Sir Mick means to me. It’s beyond a dream come true. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any crazier……and it’s the song of the summer, without a doubt!!”

Foo Fighters appeared as Mick Jagger’s backing band during a Saturday Night Live wrap party back in 2012, with Grohl recalling the “amazing” experience of performing together years later in 2017.

“And then the party starts and we see him and we’re like, ‘Pleeeease, Mick Jagger,’ and he came up and did ‘Bitch’ and it was amazing,” he remembered. “He was so on it and the audience was like, ‘Oh, my God,’ and we just go straight into ‘Miss You’ to make sure he doesn’t leave the stage and it was nuts because you don’t realize how Mick – he’s super cool. He’s a great guy.”

Foo Fighters, meanwhile, released their 10th album ‘Medicine At Midnight’ back in February – check out NME‘s four-star review here.

Tom Cruise loves doing stunts so much that he ruins takes by grinning 

Tom Cruise has shared his love for movie stunts, to such an extent that it often ruins takes.

Cruise is set to return to his role in Mission: Impossible for the seventh film in the series, out later this year.

Discussing the film and more in a new interview on The Graham Norton Show, Cruise revealed that when doing a lot of his own stunts, he gets called back to re-shoot after he can’t hide his excitement and begins smiling on camera.

“The first time of any stunt is nerve wracking but it also exhilarating. I have been told a few times during shooting a stunt to stop smiling,” he said.

Cruise went on to say that he’s broken “a lot of bones” while doing stunts across his career, adding: “I am a very physical actor and I love doing them. I study and train and take a lot of time figuring it all out.”

Mission Impossible: Fallout

It was announced this week that the release date of Mission: Impossible 7 was being pushed back once again, this time to 2022.

The film, which was slated for a November 2021 release, will now open on May 27 2022, the same opening date when the first Mission: Impossible film was released in 1996, and also the 2000 sequel.

Mission: Impossible 7 has been filming worldwide for the last year, with initial production in Italy last February postponed due to the early coronavirus outbreak in the country. Since then, the film has shot in the UK and Abu Dhabi.

Back in December, it was reported that Cruise scolded two crew members who were seen standing too close to each other in front of a computer monitor, saying: “If I see you do it again you’re fucking gone.”

Five crew members reportedly quit Mission: Impossible 7 following the incident.

Soft Cell reunite to record their first album in 20 years 

Soft Cell have confirmed that they are working on their first new album in 20 years.

The synth-pop duo, comprised of Marc Almond and Dave Ball, are busy at work on what will be their first new music since 2002’s acclaimed LP ‘Cruelty Without Beauty’.

The new album also comes as a surprise to fans who attended what was supposed to be their final gig at London’s O2 Arena in 2018.

Speaking to the Daily Star, instrumentalist Dave Ball said: “Before the O2 show, Marc and I hadn’t seen each other in about 15 years. In the years between, we’ve started to sound mature. The new songs are still catchy, but a lot more worldly-wise.”

Opening up on what fans can expect from the record, which is set to arrive in 2022, Ball said: “We haven’t tried to write another ‘Tainted Love’. Maybe we should!

“But it’d be inappropriate for two 60-something men to try to write bouncy little pop numbers. That doesn’t mean we’ve become miserable, and it’s not heavy industrial music either. I’d say the songs are sounding quite minimal, melodic and bass-driven.”

He added: “I’m really pleased with how it’s coming along, it’s sounding great.”

Soft Cell’s last new material came with the track ‘Northern Lights’, which was released in August 2018.

The duo have released five studio albums, with the most recent being their 2002 reunion record ‘Cruelty Without Beauty’.
