Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl have released a new COVID-19 song that touches on anti-vaxxers, masks and gaining weight in lockdown, before celebrating an imminent return to normality.
The Rolling Stones and Foo Fighters frontmen dropped the surprise track along with a hectic black and white music video on YouTube, which Jagger shared on Twitter.
"I wanted to share this song that I wrote about coming out of lockdown, with some much-needed optimism," Jagger wrote.
"Thank you to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass and guitar, it was a lot of fun working with you on this."
The lyrics include lines like "Thats a pretty mask / But never take a chance / Tik Tok stupid dance," and "Trying to write a tune / You better hook me up to Zoom...Think I've put on weight /
I'll have another drink then I'll clean the kitchen sink."
The song also takes the mickey out of conspiracy theories perpetuated by anti-vaxxers, flat-Earthers and global warming deniers with lines like: "Shooting the vaccine / Bill Gates is in my bloodstream /It's mind control" and "The earth is flat and cold / Its never warming up."
Jagger also declares the world is "headed back to paradise" after "escaping the prison walls" of lockdown amid the pandemic.
Meanwhile, Grohl tweeted that recording a song with Jagger was "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!!"
