The Rolling Stones Return With New Single/Video "Living In A Ghost Town"

Veteran rockers The Rolling Stones have returned with their brand new single "Living In A Ghost Town", and its accompanied video.

The song, written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards was recorded in LA and London last year and finished in isolation. Grab it here.

Mick- ‘‘So the Stones were in the studio 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 – It’s called ‘Living in a Ghost Town’ - I hope you like it”

Keith- “So, let's cut a long story short. We cut this track well over a year ago in L.A. for part of 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 , "Living in a Ghost Town". Stay safe!”

Charlie- “I enjoyed working on this track. I think it captures a mood and I hope people who listen to it will agree.”

Ronnie- “Thanks so much for all your messages these past few weeks, it means so much to us that you enjoy the music. So we have a brand new track for you, we hope you enjoy it. It has a haunting melody, it’s called Living in A Ghost Town.”

New Entry: Medicine Men Premiere New Single "Now...In The Desert"

Glasgow new wave/kraut rock/psych band Medicine Men have premiered their new single "Now...In The Desert".

The song is taken from their upcoming new album 'A Different Port', set to be released on May 15th via Last Night From Glasgow Records. Get your copy here.

The band's words: "This is a track that has been about 5 years in the making. My oldest friend from childhood Alan Henderson Jnr had a studio down at the Hidden Lane. We used to record at a different studio in the same lane and whenever I had finished for the night I always knew he’d still be in. He played me loads of different instrumental stuff he’d been working on but I remember one late night when he first played me a piece simply called “NOW”. I thought it was brilliant and asked him there and then if I could record a vocal for it. For one reason or another we never got round to it and the years (and years) went by and he moved out of the studio and all the way to Spain. Eventually, one day I get an email with a file attached so big it nearly broke my computer, and it was the track I had asked him for all those years ago. I had assumed that it had been lost in transit during his various moves between countries. But luckily it hadn’t. So I took it in to the band, we added some synths, some real drums, some real bass, and of course the vocal, but we retained the original African blues tinged vibe that Hendy had originally. Much of that percussion and instrumentation is exactly the same. Thankfully, Gordon McNeil managed to bring it all together so well for us in the mix."
