The Rolling Stones release Living In a Ghost Town, first original music since 2012

Mick Jagger says brand-new single will reverberate through the times were living in and citations coronavirus crisis with the lyric: Life was so beautiful, then we all came locked down

The Rolling Stones have exhausted their first original music since 2012, a new- and very apocalyptic- single called Living in a Ghost Town.

Mick Jagger said the band were” enter some brand-new textile before the lockdown and there was one song we envisioned would resonate through the times that we’re living in right now. We’ve worked on it in isolation. And here it is .”

Keith Richards said:” We chipped this track well over a year ago in LA for a brand-new book, an ongoing thing, and then shit reached the love. Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it .”

A moody, often strutting move, its texts seem to reference the coronavirus crisis, in the lines:” Life was so beautiful/ Then we all get locked down … Please let this be over/ Stuck in a nature without end .”

Elsewhere, Jagger sings of chaos (” Glass were all crushing/ Trumpets are still screaming “) and societal collapse 😛 TAGEND

Preachers were all preaching
Charities beseeching
Politicians dealing
Thieves were happy stealing
Widows were all weeping
There’s no bunks left for us to sleep in
Always had the feeling
It would all come toppling down.

Last Sunday, the isolated band performed together You Can’t Always Get What You Want via four separate video attaches for One World: Together at Home, a concert to benefit donations and the World Health Organisation, co-organised by Lady Gaga. A 79 -song album version of the eight-hour event has since been released.

The Rolling Stones’ most recent original textile came out as part of the 2012 best-of collection Grrr !, which featured two brand-new chants: Doom and Gloom, and One More Shot. They had now been secreted an book of off-colors submerges, Blue and Lonesome, in 2016, and the other knocks compiling, Honk, in 2019. Their last album of original material was 2005′ s A Bigger Bang.

The quartet are approaching the milestone of 60 times in the business, after Jagger and Richards constituted the group in 1962.

Despite a combined age of 302, they still often act live, and have toured each year since 2012. Their No Filter tour began in September 2017, with the next leg originally scheduled for north America in early May. The strap shelved it due to the coronavirus crisis, apologising and saying they were” enormously disheartened “. Replacement dates have not yet been scheduled.

Speaking in more depth about Living In a Ghost Town to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Jagger said he initially wrote the song in 10 minutes, but did minor reworks in the aftermath of the coronavirus crisis.

He likewise sympathised with those suffering:” It’s 20 million people lost their jobs completely for something that’s nothing to do with them at all. And also the less fund you have, the more frets you have. So for a lot of beings, it’s really tough. I entail, I have friends and they live in really small apartments in a big city and they don’t have anywhere to go and they’ve lost their job. I’m exceedingly, very lucky and I’m particularly aware how lucky I am, but not everyone’s as luck as me .”
