As CV-19 continues to keep the world on indoor lock down and the legendary rock royalty act having to reschedule their No Filter tour, there’s no better time than the present for The Rolling Stones to unveil “Living in a Ghost Town”.
According to a recent interview with Apple Music‘s Zane Lowe, the UK-based band’s front man, Mick Jagger, admitted that he and Keith Richards wrote the song over a year ago, “It wasn’t written for now, but it was just one of those odd things,” he said. “It was written about being in a place which was full of life but is now bereft of life so to speak…” As the song lyrics aptly reflect the current state of the world, the band decided to unveil it, with only some slight changes.
Along with the Universal Music-released recording, The Stones added an appropriate video of London’s now-barren streets so listen and watch “Living in a Ghost Town”.
As the group hasn’t released an album of new material since 2005’s A Bigger Bang. “Living in a Ghost Town” may be the calling card single for for The Rolling Stones’ next album so stay tuned for more updates on what may come.
