Rolling Stones to reissue Some Girls this fall

Last year, Rolling Stones fans were treated to a deluxe reissue of the band’s 1972 classic, “Exile On Main Street.”

This year, the band is giving 1978’s “Some Girls” a re-release, according to Mick Jagger.

“I just finished off doing all the outtakes for the 'Some Girls' album we're releasing at Thanksgiving,” Jagger tells Spinner. “We did 'Exile,' we did a lot of different takes, a lot of different cuts that hadn't come out before, so we're doing the similar kind of thing with 'Some Girls,' so I've just been doing them because a lot of them weren't complete, so I had to complete them, and then we're gonna mix those and put them out for Thanksgiving.”

"Some Girls Live in Texas 1978" will be released November 21 on DVD and Blu-ray; the deluxe versions of the DVD and Blu-ray releases will include CDs. The concert film will also be shown for one night only in movie cinemas worldwide in October. The dates (which will vary by city) and locations for the theatrical release are to be announced.

Beyond that, there’s a big anniversary looming…

“Then we talked about maybe what events are going to be going around for the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones,” Mick added. “We don't really know the answer to that, but we talked about it a bit.”

Jagger was asked what such a huge milestone meant to him.

“It sounds a lot of years to me,” he replied. “But you know, you're very lucky to have been doing it that long, so I guess I should be happy [laughs].”

As for more immediate calendar-related dates, Mick’s latest project, “SuperHeavy,” releases its debut album next Monday, September 19 (Sep 20 in North America).

The SuperHeavy lineup features Jagger, Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart, singer Joss Stone, composer A.R. Rahman and reggae artist Damian Marley.
