PARIS – A new song by the Rolling Stones, one of two included in their forthcoming “Grrr!” greatest hits album, will be released on Thursday, the group’s Universal record label said.
“Doom and Gloom”, recorded in Paris over the summer, will be broadcast by radio stations and available as a digital download via iTunes from Thursday morning, the label said on Wednesday.
“Grrr!” will be released on November 12 and will also include another new song, “One Last Shot”.
Both songs are the result of the band’s first recording in seven years. Their last album “A Bigger Bang” was released in 2005.
The Rolling Stones celebrated their 50th anniversary this year.
The new album will be available in several formats including CD and vinyl.
On November 5, a remastered version of “Charlie is My Darling”, the first documentary about the Rolling Stones, will be released. The documentary by Pete Whitehead was filmed on September 3 and 4, 1965, after the release of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”.
A poor quality 50-minute pirate version exists but the 65-minute official version has been painstakingly restored, Universal said.
