The track, which has been made available on YouTube as a performance video featuring Jagger at home and Grohl in studio, was written by Jagger in lockdown and features the Stones man on vocals and guitar, while the Foos singer plays drums, guitar, and bass.
On the track, 77-year-old Jagger, who last performed in Ireland with the Rolling Stones in 2018, reflects on a world of 'zoom calls', ‘home in these prison walls’, ‘poncey books’, ‘fake applause’ and ‘too much TV’.
Speaking about the song, he said, ‘It’s a song that I wrote about coming out of lockdown, with some much-needed optimism.
"Thanks to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass and guitar, it was a lot of fun working with him. Hope you all enjoy Eazy Sleazy."
Grohl added, "It’s hard to put into words what recording this song with Sir Mick means to me. It’s beyond a dream come true.
"Just when I thought life couldn’t get any crazier . . . and it’s the song of the summer, without a doubt!!"
Foo Fighters, who released their 10th album Medicine At Midnight in February, were Jagger's backing band at a Saturday Night Live wrap party back in 2012.
Speaking in 2017 about the performance, Grohl said, "And then the party starts and we see him and we’re like, 'Pleeeease, Mick Jagger,’ and he came up and did Bitch and it was amazing.
"He was so on it and the audience was like, ‘Oh, my God,’ and we just go straight into Miss You to make sure he doesn’t leave the stage and it was nuts because you don’t realize how Mick – he’s super cool. He’s a great guy."
