Rolling Stones Tease ‘Angry’: Look + Listen

Preempting the legendary rockers’ long-anticipated first album of original songs in 18 years, the Rolling Stones took to a seldom-working website to tease what could be their brand new single.

Offering their fans a chance to “Hear a clip of the new song,” on Saturday (9.02) the legendary rockers’ social media accounts linked to a website for a track titled “Don’t Get Angry With Me” (or “Angry”.) However, following multiple attempts to hear the snippet, the site appeared to crash with “Experiencing heavy traffic,” along with a “500 Error” page message.

After end-users flocked to the Stones’ social media pages, complaining that the music wouldn’t load, the automatic reply was “Oh don’t get angry with me.”

Late last month in local British newspapers via an advertisement for Hackney Diamonds, the Stones teased the arrival of their new album – the first LP since the 2016 blues covers album Blue & Lonesome, and first collection of original music since 2005’s A Bigger Bang. “Our friendly team promises you satisfaction. “When you say gimme shelter we’ll fix your shattered windows,” the ad stated, quoting the title of three Stones classics.

Working on new music over the last few years, Mick and the boys released “Living in a Ghost Town,” in April of 2020. And in a 2021 interview with The Los Angeles Times, Keith Richards said the band might’ve finished a new album had the pandemic not interrupted things, with Jagger adding “We have a lot of tracks done, so when the tour’s finished, we’ll assess where we are with that and continue.”

In March, Richards told Rolling Stone that the new full length would feature some of the final sessions with drummer Charlie Watts (who died in August 2021) but that it would also feature contributions from Watts’ live replacement, Steve Jordan. Additionally, in an Instagram video shared in January, Richards said, “There’s some new music on its way.”

Earlier this year the Stones enlisted the Beatles’ Paul McCartney to play bass on at least one track, with the band laying down the album in a Los Angeles studio with producer Andrew Watt.
