Watch Jefferson Starship’s New Music Video for ‘It’s About Time,’ a Powerful New Song Co-Written by Grace Slick; ‘Mother of the Sun’ EP Out 8/21 (Pre-Order)

In early July, Jefferson Starship premiered a new song, and “It’s About Time” is a resilient anthem of empowerment from the longtime band that was co-written by longtime member Grace Slick alongside lead singer Cathy Richardson and guitarist Jude Gold.

It’s taken from the new Jefferson Starship EP, Mother of the Sun, which is out on Aug. 21 and can be pre-ordered from our Rock Cellar Store by clicking here.

The band’s first new song in 12 years, “It’s About Time” packed a powerful lyrical punch — and the band has since premiered a music video for the tune:

Per Rolling Stone, David Freiberg recently explained what went into Jefferson Starship putting together new music, which will be released as an EP titled Mother of the Sun on Aug. 21.

He further explained that the project came together after the death of co-founding member Paul Kantner in 2016; the five remaining bandmates received the blessing from Kantner’s family to continue on playing under the Jefferson Starship name.

Said Cathy Richardson in a statement:

“Paul Kantner was our bandleader and the visionary who kept Jefferson Starship going through so many eras. He inspired so much about this record, from the messages in the lyrics to the title and album art to the collaborative process of creating music as a band with some of his original muses — Grace, Marty, and Pete. Mother of the Sun is dedicated to PK.”

The new Jefferson Starship EP (pre-order a copy here) features a song with former singer/guitarist Marty Balin, who passed away in 2018.
