The Go-Go’s have shared their first new song in 19 years. It’s called ‘Club Zero’ and it was “created via email exchanges amongst bandmembers,” according to a statement. Listen to it below.
The new single arrives just ahead of the premiere of a new documentary about The Go-Go’s, which airs August 1 on SHOWTIME. Directed by Alison Ellwood (Laurel Canyon, History of the Eagles), the film will chronicle the group’s rise from being part of the 1970s Los Angeles punk scene to becoming a chart-topping pop group, and will include footage behind the making of ‘Club Zero’.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, The Go-Go’s Jane Wiedlin explained: “I was reading about the Zero Zero Club, which was an underground, after-hours club in Hollywood in the Eighties. I thought about how cool that title was. I just felt that the point of that song was the perfect thing for the Go-Go’s to say in 2020. We’re not putting up with this whole boys’ club anymore. It’s fucking bullshit. And that’s what Club Zero is: ‘Zero fucks given.’ It felt like what people needed to hear right now.”
The Go-Go’s released their last studio album, God Bless the Go-Go’s, in 2001.
