Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Joan Jett has recorded a song for the forthcoming film, Miss You Already. The song is the title track to the movie — which focuses on the lifelong friendship of two women — and hits on the film’s themes of loss and the preciousness of memories in a razor-toothed surge of guitars with a hot chorus,” according to Rolling Stone. It was written by Jett, guitarist Dougie Needles and Jett’s longtime manager Kenny Laguna. “I give her pop..She gives me menace,” said Laguna of the track. Helmed by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, the movie stars Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette, Dominic Cooper and Jacqueline Bissett. Jett also spoke with Rolling Stone about sexism in rock. “People look at women differently,” Jett says. “Men are viable into old age. Women all of a sudden become matronly? C’mon, man!” Jett — who is on the road with The Who through November — said a typical day off stage consists of doing “nothing.” “If I can help it,” she said “I’d work at the animal shelter. Or I kick back on my royalties, just be out in nature.”
