New song, released early for lockdown
The Rolling Stones have released a surprise new song this evening called, rather appropriately, Living In A Ghost Town.
The song was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and Mick explains that “the Stones were in the studio recording some new material before the lockdown and there was one song we thought would resonate through the times that we’re living in right now. We’ve worked on it in isolation”
Keith is slightly more forthright, pointing out that “we cut this track well over a year ago in L.A. for part of a new album, an ongoing thing, and then shit hit the fan.” The pair then decided the song “really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it.”
Living In A Ghost Town is being made available on 10-inch orange vinyl. A purple vinyl or CD edition is exclusive to The Rolling Stones online store. Physical formats are released on 26 June (vinyl) respectively.
