AUDIO: Rolling Stones premiere unreleased version of Dead Flowers

The Rolling Stones are premiering an unreleased version of fan-favorite “Dead Flowers” as a preview to the upcoming reissue of their classic 1971 album, “Sticky Fingers.”

The tune is one of several previously unreleased and alternative takes of a selection of album tracks featured on the project, including an alternative version of “Brown Sugar” featuring Eric Clapton; unreleased versions of “Bitch” and “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”, an acoustic take on “Wild Horses”, and five tracks recorded live at The Roundhouse in 1971 including “Honky Tonk Women” and “Midnight Rambler” – all featured on the Deluxe and Super Deluxe Editions.

Due June 8 (June 9 in North America), the remastered album will be available on CD, 2CD, LP, 2LP, a Deluxe Edition Boxet, Super Deluxe Edition Boxset and via digital download.

The Super Deluxe edition also includes “Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out!”, a 13-track audio recording of the Stones March 1971 show in Leeds, shortly before they began their self-imposed UK ‘exile’ period in France over tax issues. A DVD includes two tracks from the band’s Marquee Club show in London on March 26, 1971.

The Rolling Stones launched a 15-date stadium tour of North America in San Diego on May 24.
