Not to be clichéd or anything, but are you ready to rock? Jet are back with their first new music in many a year, a collaboration with The Bloody Beetroots called ‘My Name Is Thunder’. As you may have guessed, it rocks.

Part of a new double single, the track will also appear on the Italian dance music project’s new album, which will be released later this year.

“I knew this song needed a certain rock tone – a tone like Nic Cester of Jet had,” The Bloody Beetroots bloke Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo says. “We thought instead of someone ‘like Nic Cester,’ how about we get the real Nic Cester! Thinking he would be in Australia, it was fate that he lived just a couple hours away from me in Italy. I found him, we worked together, ate together, drank together and created something very powerful together. Around this time the Jet guys started talking and thinking about getting back together, when Nic shared this with his bandmates, the idea came up to have ALL of Jet involved. Because of our different influences, we had different ideas on the mixing and from that, we came up with two versions. It’s the best of both our worlds!”

Here’s the full-tilt rock version…
