The Rolling Stones are streaming a previously-unreleased cover of the Chi-Lites’ 1970 track, “Troubles a’ Comin”, ahead of its inclusion in a series of expanded reissues of their 1981 album, “Tattoo You.”

Recorded in Paris, France in 1979, the songis one of nine unreleased tunes from the era for the album’s 40th anniversary series; due October 22, the 1981 record has been remastered as a standalone set, with most packages featuring unreleased recordings and a 1982 concert from London’s Wembley Stadium.

“It’s a funny album,” Mick Jagger recently revealed to Rolling Stone about “Tattoo You”. “It’s not an album where you can say we went into X studio, we spent six months and this is the album. It’s just tracks that got recorded any time from 1972 to 1981. It wasn’t really an album. It was all over the place. It doesn’t have a kind of center.”

“Tattoo You” 40th Anniversary Editions will be available in a multiple formats, including CD, LP and digital, Deluxe 2CD and 2LP versions, and 4CD and 5LP Super Deluxe Boxset.

Upon its original release, the project was the group’s last album to top the US Billboard 200 while reaching the Top 5 in more than a dozen countries.

The Rolling Stones dedicated their No Filter US Tour to Charlie Watts during an emotional opening night in St. Louis, MO on September 26.
