Living In A Ghost Town - Orange Vinyl
The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones released a new song that was partially recorded while the band was in isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the band originally intended it to be part of an upcoming album, but decided it was an appropriate track to release during the COVID-19 pandemic as everyone is stuck inside and the streets in some parts of the world look like a literal ghost town
Mick Jagger said the band were “recording some new material before the lockdown and there was one song we thought would resonate through the times that we’re living in right now. We’ve worked on it in isolation. And here it is.”

Keith Richards said: “We cut this track well over a year ago in LA for a new album, an ongoing thing, and then shit hit the fan. Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it.”
