Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has teamed up with Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl on a brand-new track called Easy Sleazy

The song references the coronavirus pandemic and some of the struggles we faced during lockdown, with lyrics like: "Looking at the graphs/With a magnifying glass/Cancel all the tours/Football's fake applause". 

There are even some conspiracy theories thrown in there, with lines like: "Shooting the vaccine/Bill Gates is in my bloodstream/It's mind control/The earth is flat and cold." 

Speaking about the song, according to Vulture, Mick said in a press release:  "It's a song that I wrote about coming out of lockdown, with some much needed optimism."  

While Dave Grohl added: "It's the song of the summer, without a doubt!!"
