It's been on Spotify and Deezer for nearly an hour too ;-)

More than "Sweet Neo Con" it's closer to the great unreleased "Ivy League", the instrumental version heard on "Voodoo Brew".

Fantastic. I like it the more I listen to it. It has a good groove. I like the changes where it gets more intense, and then the part where it slows down a lot to that sparse reggae. And I suspected that it would have a big hook, and it did!

While there is clearly a slight nod to some reggae vibe during that particular section, I'd like to hear a full on true dub version of the entire song turned inside out and dissected down to all of it's most basic elements.
With a drum beat here, a stabbing guitar lick there, add an echoed out vocal swooping in and out...I've always wanted to hear a pure dub version of Heaven also as it would easily lend itself to that, as would this.
Ordered the 10" vinyl single already, and it's a shame they couldn't have added a dub to the b-side - or even a remix of any kind....or anything at all come to think of it.
Oh well - love the Stones, and based on first impressions loving the new tune....thumbs up...for the time being anyways.smiling smiley

Not a big fan of the mix (drum, bass too prominent, guitars hidden), but cool song and very fitting now - also using the little buzz from that recent corona live event.

Just came up on my phone lol, I got to wait 60 minutes, what a lovely surprise from the boys, had a feeling they would do something during the lockdown, pleased most of you guys like it.

Oh the suspence of waiting to hear it, reminds me of the old days when the Stones used to make music together winking smiley

On my third listen to the full song.
Liking it more each time... this song is going to get a lot of play.

"Preachers were all preaching
Charities beseeching
Politicians dealing
Thieves were happy stealing
Widows were all weeping
There’s no beds left for us to sleep in
Always had the feeling
It would all come tumbling down"

-
"Speaking in more depth about Living In a Ghost Town to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Jagger said he originally wrote the song in 10 minutes, but made minor rewrites in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

He also sympathised with those suffering: “It’s 20 million people lost their jobs completely for something that’s nothing to do with them at all. And also the less money you have, the more worries you have. So for lots of people, it’s really tough. I mean, I have friends and they live in really small apartments in a big city and they don’t have anywhere to go and they’ve lost their job. I’m very, very lucky and I’m very aware how lucky I am, but not everyone’s as lucky as me.”

I bought the track from google play. I think everyone should buy this from somewhere so we get this to #1.

Not sure who's playing on there but I'll be so bold as to say that the production/musicianship is better on this than anything on ABB, which is not saying a lot of course.

What does he sing at 1:18 : "Trump (?) is _____ screaming" ?

Gotta love the "Life was so beautiful than we all got locked down" at 00:50
or "If I wanna party, it's a party of one" at 3:46
Maybe Trump is heard a screaming ?

Well... if it takes a global pandemic to get the Stones back to work creating a new album then that's the price we will have to pay...

Pretty Good - it has a VooDoo Lounge feel; the intent is to address current situation from a lyrical standpoint.

"Living In A Ghost Town"

I'm a ghost
Living in a ghost town
I'm a ghost
Living in a ghost town

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

Once this place was humming
And the air was full of drumming
The sound of cymbals crashing
Glasses were all smashing
Trumpets were all screaming
Saxophones were blaring
Nobody was caring if it's day or night

I'm a ghost
Living in a ghost town
I'm going nowhere
Shut up all alone

So much time to lose
Just staring at my phone

Every night I am dreaming
That you'll come and creep in my bed
Please let this be over
Not stuck in a world without end

Preachers were all preaching
Charities beseeching
Politicians dealing
Thieves were happy stealing
Widows were all weeping
There's no beds for us to sleep in
Always had the feeling
It will all come tumbling down

I'm a ghost
Living in a ghost town
You can look for me
But I can't be found

We're all living in a ghost town
Living in a ghost town
We were so beautiful
I was your man about town
Living in this ghost town
Ain't having any fun
If I want a party
It's a party of one

Would make sense, can't quite hear that though, "Trump's world is a screaming" ? Hum, nope

Just heard it on the radio. Was shocked to hear the DJ say “and here’s the new one from The Rolling Stones”

I’m also happy to see the Stones are being spoken about in reverential terms from the average person these days. Seems like the whole Rolling Stones are old thing got tired and everyone is on the living legends bandwagon.

Pretty good song after one listen.

Good song...but morbidly depressing..wish the tone had been uplifting. We really could have used that. I don't even want to hear it a 2nd time. Maybe later when this is over and we feel safe and we can look back...

Thanks to Deathgod...you get up, go to
work, come home and suddenly there´s a new Stones single...
the boys know what timing means. It might get some airplay.

Fitting lyrics and a sunny groove!

Have listened a few times now on Spotify and youtube....
Lyrically...maybe leaves a bit to be desired. The vocals are pretty good, but do I detect some autotune? Nothing wrong with that, but...I love Mick's wailing harmonica part.
Musically, I'm digging the grooves...nice guitars-Stonesy vibe throughout...and Charlie keeping it real...my head keeps involuntarily nodding to the groove and the beat which is a good sign...

Love it! From the "dub guitars", through the beautiful bridge and throughout.

Drums and bass are phenomenal. My daughter told me the auto tune was "so 2009", though, but I can live with that thumbs up
