Rickie Lee Jones & Madeleine Peyroux Team For Remake of "Rock On", Tour

by VVN Music

Rickie Lee Jones and Madeleine Peyroux have teamed up for a new version of the David Essex classic Rock On.

As the official video for the song opens, the two artists state that it is "A Message of Hope". The song then plays over a mix of protest footage along with pictures and video of various leaders, great and not.

Jones said of the video, "Standing up to Intimidation, women march. Offering respect in a disrespectful climate, women fight for their rights, living, and rising in the dangerous world in which we live. this song is a tribute to US!"


The duo has also recorded a new version of the film classic As Time Goes By.


Rickie Lee Jones burst onto the scene in 1979 with her international hit Chuck E.'s in Love and her self titled debut album. Since then, Rickie has released sixteen more studio and live albums including her latest, The Other Side of Love (2015).

Madeleine Peyroux released her debut album, Dreamland, in 1996 and has a total of eight studio albums to her name including 2006's Half the Perfect World which peaked at 33 in the U.S.
