The Rolling Stones share new Scarlet remix

The Rolling Stones are sharing a new remix of their latest single, “Scarlet”, by The Killers and producer Jacques Lu Cont.

The version follows a War On Drugs remix as the second update of the recently-released original version – which also features Jimmy Page and will be featured on the September 4 series of reissues of their 1973 album, “Goats Head Soup.”

“My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session,” says Keith Richards of “Scarlet.” “They were just leaving, and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay. We weren’t actually cutting it as a track; it was basically for a demo, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it, but it came out well, with a lineup like that, you know, we better use it.”

“I remember first jamming this with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie’s basement studio,”
recalls Mick Jagger. “It was a great session.”

“Goats Head Soup 2020” will be available in multiple configurations, including four-disc CD and vinyl box set editions, Deluxe 2CD and 2LP versions, and single CD, vinyl and cassette packages.

The 4-disc Super Deluxe box set delivers 35 tracks on three CDs and one Blu-ray disc (Dolby Atmos, 96kHz/24 bit high resolution stereo, and 96 kHz/24 bit DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1); featured are the new stereo album mix – sourced from the original session files; rarities, alternative mixes and three previously-unreleased tracks; videos for “Dancing With Mr. D”, “Silver Train” and “Angie”; and, “The Brussels Affair”, a 15-track live set recorded in a memorable show in Belgium on the autumn 1973 tour that followed the album's late August release.

The 4 discs are housed in the boxset alongside a 120 page book with an array of photos and three essays on the album, the era and its legacy, and 4 x 1973 reproduction tour posters, rolled up within the packaging to avoid creases.

The 2CD and 2LP editions deliver the new stereo mix and the rare tracks, with the single CD and vinyl offerings presenting the 2020 stereo mix.
