Joan Jett Unveils Acoustic Single ‘(I’m Gonna) Run Away’
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts have released a new acoustic single titled "(I'm Gonna) Run Away," off their first-ever acoustic album, Changeup, set for a March 25 release.
You can listen to the song and see the full Changeup track listing below.
Changeup marks Jett's first studio album with the Blackhearts since 2013's Unvarnished. That record peaked at No. 47 on the Billboard 200, making it her first one to chart since the 1990 covers album The Hit List.
Jett previously teased Changeup in 2021 with an unplugged rendition of her signature 1980 song "Bad Reputation." The new 25-song LP will feature acoustic versions of several of Jett's most popular songs, including "Cherry Bomb" and "Crimson and Clover."
"(I'm Gonna) Run Away" first appeared on Jett's 1981 album I Love Rock 'n Roll, which soared to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and went platinum off the strength of its chart-topping title track. The album's second single, "Crimson and Clover," also became a Top 10 hit, peaking at No. 7.
Jett is set to embark on the long-awaited Stadium Tour with Motley Crue, Def Leppard and Poison in June. She'll play a series of headlining shows before that, starting on March 26 in Atlanta and wrapping on June 4 in Augusta, Ga. You can see her headlining tour dates below.
