The Rolling Stones have just announced a brand new track, titled ‘Living In A Ghost Town’.

The song was recorded in LA and London last year, but had to be finished off in isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s the first original song released by the band since 2012’s ‘Doom and Gloom’ and ‘One More Shot’.

These two songs featured on their greatest hits album GRRR!.
