Group teams with Alok
The Rolling Stones have teamed with Brazilian DJ and record producer Alok for a new remix for “Living in a Ghost Town.” The remix has a U2 vibe that’s heavy on the EDM and vocal effects.
The track was written by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards and was created and recorded in Los Angeles and London. It was finished in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic and released to all DSPs last month.
The song features Jagger on vocals, backing vocals, harmonica and guitar; Richards on guitar and backing vocals; Charlie Watts on drums; Ronnie Wood on guitar and backing vocals; Darryl Jones on bass; and Matt Clifford on keys, French horn, sax and flugelhorn.
It’s the Stones’ first original track in eight years. No word on whether it’ll appear on an upcoming album.
The group was forced to postpone its 2020 No Filter Tour due to the pandemic. The 15 date trek was set to kick off in San Diego on May 8th and wrap in Atlanta on July 9th. No new dates have been announced as of press time, but AEG Presents/Concerts West advise ticket holders to hold onto their original tickets and await further information.
As part of YouTube’s #StayHome campaign, The Rolling Stones have launched a weekly series entitled Extra Licks on the band’s official YouTube channel, featuring six concert films making its digital debut.
