Prior to the COVID-19 lockdown, The Rolling Stones had been spending a significant time in the studio working on new material. Jagger and co. thought that one track in particular, Living In A Ghost Town, particularly resonated with the times we’re living in, and they’ve decided to share it with the wider world.
Here’s what the band had to say on the single:
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 A 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 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!”
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.”
Charlie: “I enjoyed working on this track. I think it captures a mood and I hope people who listen to it will agree.”
