AFP photoThe Rolling Stones today release a greatest hits album titled “Grrr!” featuring two new tracks recorded over the summer in Paris, as fans count down to a string of 50th-anniversary concerts.
The first new single, “Doom and Gloom” was released online last month, and is available to stream from the band’s official website, www.rollingstones.com, while the second, “One More Shot,” was put online on Nov. 8.
“Dirty, swaggering and perfectly Stonesy,” is how the Daily Telegraph’s reviewer described the latest track. The songs are the Stones’s first new recordings together in seven years.
“Grrr!” will be released in several formats, including 50- and 80-track box sets, featuring such classics as “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” or “Honky Tonk Women”.
Celebrating a half-century in rock and roll this year, the Stones played their first concerts in five years at two small venues in Paris late last month.
They have announced four major concerts in Britain and the United States to mark the anniversary. The band is currently rehearsing in Paris.
