The Rolling Stones Share New Single ‘Living In A Ghost Town’


The Rolling Stones shared a new single, “Living In A Ghost Town.” The legendary rockers began recording the track in Los Angeles and London and finished it in isolation.

The new Mick Jagger/Keith Richards co-write features guitar and backing vocals from Keith and Ronnie Wood as well as lead vocals and harmonica from Mick all over Charlie Watts‘ rock-solid beat. The song also sees contributions from longtime Stones collaborators Darryl Jones (bass) and Matt Clifford (keyboards, french horn, sax, flugelhorn).

The band detailed the timely track with individual statements. Read them below:

Mick- ‘‘So the Stones were in the studio recording some new material before the lockdown 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. And here it is – It’s called ‘Living in Ghost Town’ – I hope you like it”

Keith- “So, let’s cut a long story short. We cut this track well over a year ago in L.A. 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!”

Charlie- “I enjoyed working on this track. I think it captures a mood and I hope people who listen to it will agree.”

Ronnie- “Thanks so much for all your messages these past few weeks, it means so much to us that you enjoy the music. So we have a brand new track for you, we hope you enjoy it. It has a haunting melody, it’s called Living in A Ghost Town.”
