Who can be more legendary than The Rolling Stones? Right now, no one. And while we have decades of incredible music from their discography to listen to during this quarantine, we’ve also been blessed with a brand new song, called ‘Living In A Ghost Town.’ Written by none other than legends Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, even before we heard the song, we knew it would be a hit, just like every other song by The Rolling Stones.
Mick’s vocals are still so incredible, as well as the whole instrumentation for the song, and the harmonica in it just adds to its flair. It even sounds like their earlier music all those years ago, keeping long-time fans happy and pleased with it. We can already tell it’ll be amazing live! Even the lyricism, though it wasn’t written during quarantine, feels perfect to describe our current situation.
Listen to the song here, and check out below what the band said about the song!
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 Ghost Town’ – I hope you like it. – Mick
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! – KeithThe Rolling Stones
Isn’t it interesting that they wrote it before everyone was in isolation but it feels fitting to this time now? And, we don’t just get this new song, but they also released a music video! Check it out below!
The video showcases many different cities around the world through a lens view, as well as the band recording the song. All the empty streets in the video make us wonder just how much of a genius Mick Jagger is, they’re living in a ghost town (or in our case, living in quarantine) and no one’s around.
So, we all know that it’s an incredible song and video, but what do you think of it? Let us know by commenting below or by tweeting us @TheHoneyPOP!
