A new song by The Rolling Stones has been released. According to the Stones forum the track will be called ‘Living In A Ghost Town’.
The lyrics with the words “locked down” suggest that this song was written and recorded in the past two months, most likely as the band were together rehearsing for the American tour which was due to commence in May.
You can look for me
But I can’t be found
You can search for me
I had to go underground
Life was so beautiful
Then we all got locked down
Feel a like ghost
Living in a ghost town
The song is expected to drop at 2am 24 April (East Coast Australia), 5pm 23 April (London), midday 23 April (NYC/Eastern) or 9am 23 April (California/PT).
