Joan Jett's Blackheart Records Gives The Gift Of Rock

The holidays are right around the corner and Blackheart Records, Joan Jett's record label, will be celebrating with a holiday album available on iTunes. The album features newly recorded holiday standards from Girl in a Coma, The Dollyrots and original tunes from Seattle punks The Cute Lepers and veteran Blackheart band The Vacancies. A modern take on "Silent Night" closes out the 11-track offering. Recently recorded with Joan Jett on vocals and guitar, the track includes excerpts from Barack Obama's victory speech in Chicago earlier this month.

Girl in a Coma, The Dollyrots, The Vacancies and The Cute Lepers are all featured artists on Jett's Blackheart Records, a company she started over 25 years ago, making her the first woman to start her own rock label.

Preview the album by downloading the recently recorded "Silent Night," a Blackheart twist on the holiday classic featuring Jett and guests.
