The Rolling Stones have released their first new song in seven years. It’s titled Doom and Gloom, and it’s one of the two new tracks from their new album, GRRR! Greatest Hits, due for release a month from now.
The BBC premiered the hard-rocking tune this morning. It’s reminiscent of Jumping Jack Flash and Gimme Shelter with a 21st century theme:
Doom and Gloom was recorded in Paris a few months ago, along with a second new song, One More Shot, which hasn’t been released.
Earlier this week, guitarist Keith Richards revealed the Stones have been booked for concerts in New York or London, though he didn’t say when. The band’s sax player, Bobby Keys, says the shows will take place next month. But there’s been no official confirmation.
