Rolling Stones Releasing New Single, Will Play Shows in U.K. and U.S.
The Rolling Stones are about to release a new single. The song, “Doom and Gloom” will debut on BBC Radio 2 at 8:15 BST on Thursday, October 11. The track will be available for download shortly afterward. The song is off the band’s upcoming greatest hits album, GRRR! and was recorded in Paris with famed producer Don Was. It was the first time that the remaining members of the band put something together in the studio in seven years.
In late August Billboard reported that the Rolling Stones will perform two shows at London’s O2 Arena and two shows at the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn in November, Billboard.com reports. The news comes after months of speculation as to whether The Rolling Stones would celebrate their 50th anniversary with live performances. According to the report, Richard Branson and Australian promoter Paul Dainty will promote the shows, which will earn the Stones a hefty $25 million for the four performances.
