The Rolling Stones have taken one for the team and released a brand new track for us to enjoy as we continue to isolate, appropriately named Living In A Ghost Town.
This is the band’s first original release since their greatest hits album Grrr, back in 2012, which featured new tracks, Doom and Gloom and One More Shot.
The Rolling Stones release brand new material for the first time since 2012. Living In A Ghost Town will “resonate through the times that we’re living in right now.”
Initial writing for the track began before lockdown laws were finalised. The rock band then decided to finish the song during the coronavirus induced quarantine. Guitarist Keith Richards explains:
“So, let’s cut a long story short. 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 Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it. Stay safe!”
Drummer and guitarist, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have commented on the track as well, mentioning the songs’ “haunting melody” and adding that it “captures a mood”.
“So 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. And here it is – It’s called ‘Living in A Ghost Town’ – I hope you like it,” lead singer, Mick Jagger confirms.
