Rolling Stones: 50th Anniversary collection to include 2 new songs

The Rolling Stones have announced the fall release of a new greatest hits collection to mark the band’s 50th Anniversary.

Due November 12 worldwide (November 13 in North America), “GRRR!” will be available in five different formats, including a three-CD 50-track version and a four-CD super-deluxe version that includes 80 songs.

The collection follows the history of The Stones, from their first single, 1963’s cover of Chuck Berry’s “Come On”, through hits like “The Last Time,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Get Off Of My Cloud,” “Jumping Jack Flash,” “Honky Tonk Women,” and concert staples “Brown Sugar,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Miss You” and “Start Me Up.”

“GRRR!” will also feature two new songs - “Doom And Gloom” and “One Last Shot” – recorded last month in Paris. The tracks mark the first time Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have all been together in the recording studio since completing 2005's "A Bigger Bang" album.

Artwork for the collection, created by American artist Walton Ford, is being shared as part of an innovative campaign using 3D Augmented Reality.

Over the past three weeks, fans have been invited to download the free uView app, which can be used to scan the “GRRR!” sleeve and watch it come to life in 3D animation right before their eyes. The technology has been developed in partnership with Aurasma, the leaders in image recognition and augmented reality technology.

50 Track 3CD album
3CD / 50 tracks in a digipack with 24 page booklet
