Big news!

Rock’n’roll legends The Rolling Stones have just released their first brand new song in eight years, the aptly titled ‘Living In A Ghost Town’.

‘Living In A Ghost Town’ is said to have been written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and recorded between both LA and London, with the band finalising the track for release while in isolation. The song itself is a standard affair for the Stones, and while it won’t rank among the classics, you can’t deny that the fellas still know how to pen a catchy rock’n’roll track.

Keith Richards discussed the new song in a statement today, bluntly saying, “Let’s cut a long story short. We cut this track well over a year ago in LA for part of a new album, an ongoing thing, and then shit hit the fan Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it, “Living in a Ghost Town”. Stay safe!”
