The new Rolling Stones album will be titled 'GRRR!', it will be released for the 50th anniversary and it will contain two new songs.
The Rolling Stones, ABKCO Music and Universal Music Group have announced a new career spanning hits set to be released on November 12 outside North America and November 13 in the U.S. The set is only the second time that music from all of their labels has been gathered in one set after 2002′s Forty Licks.
GRRR! will be released in five formats:
3 CDs/50 Tracks ' with 24 page booklet
3 CDs/50 Tracks Deluxe Edition ' with 36 page hardback book and five postcards
5 CDs/80+ Tracks Super Deluxe Edition ' with 7″ vinyl, hardback book, poster and five postcards in a preservation box
5 Vinyl LPs/50 Tracks ' in a casebound LP box.
The set travels from 1963 cover of Chuck Berry's Come On (their first single) to two new tracks, Gloom and Doom and One Last Shot, both recently recorded in Paris, France.
These brand new recordings constitute the first time Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have all been together in the studio since completing A Bigger Bang album in 2005, and follow on from the critically-acclaimed expanded re-releases of the historic 40th Anniversary live Madison Square Garden concert Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! in November 2009 and of two of their seventies masterworks, Exile on Main St., in May 2010, and Some Girls, in November 2011.
A track listing is expected in the near future.
In other news, don't hold your breath for any more shows outside the two London and two New York events. Noise11.com hears that there are no plans for any further shows including the rumoured Australian show and if you want to see the Rolling Stones live then get your arse to London or New York.
