The Rolling Stones release new single Living In A Ghost Town

The Rolling Stones have released a new single, “Living In A Ghost Town.”

While the song and companion video – featuring deserted streets in locations around the world – are a thematic fit for the current global pandemic, the band reveal the track has been in the works for some time.

“So, let's cut a long story short,” explains Keith Richards. “We cut this track well over a year ago in L.A. for part of a new album, an ongoing thing, and then s**t 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!”

“So the Stones were in the studio recording some new material before the lockdown,”
adds Mick Jagger, “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 … I hope you like it.”

“Living In A Ghost Town” marks the Stones’ first original new music since “Doom And Gloom” and “One More Shot” were included in their 2012 compilation, “GRRR!”

The Rolling Stones recently postponed their No Filter North American tour amid the coronavirus pandemic; the 15-date series was scheduled to open May 8 in San Diego, CA.

The iconic band are also recorded a new version of their 1969 classic, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, for “One World: Together At Home: The Album”, a newly-released collection of live in-home performances from the April 18 global broadcast in support of the fight against COVID-19.
