The Stones To Release New Single
Plus Bobby Keys seemingly confirms November London showsThe Stones will release brand new single 'Doom & Gloom' tomorrow, according to NME.
The song is one of two brand new tracks that have been recorded for forthcoming Best Of, Grrr!, which is released on 12 November. The song is the first brand new material by the Stones since 2005's A Bigger Bang LP.
Meanwhile, long time Stones collaborator Bobby Keys has confirmed that the band will play shows in London and New York.
He says in a new interview Billboard that the Stones are "gonna do some more concerts, starting in November with two in England and then a couple here in the States, then there's a few added concerts after that. Keith told me a couple months ago there was something in the wind and just be ready to go. I'm waiting for them to send me the plane ticket and the information, and then I'll go."
He also says that these shows may be amongst the last that the band will perform.
"The reality is this train is going to pull into the last station pretty soon -- I don't know how soon. I've been saying this since 1980," he notes with a laugh. "But I feel like it's kind of winding down. This may be sort of the 'Sayonara, see you later, had a good time, keep in touch.' I don't know that for sure. I haven't officially been told anything...I just take my cue primarily from what Keith says, so we'll have to see."
