I Rolling Stones non smettono di stupire i loro fan e li hanno sorpresi rilasciando un nuovo singolo.

Sebbene siano stati attivissimi per tutto questo tempo, gli Stones non rilasciavano un brano inedito ormai dal 2012. Allora erano usciti “Doom and Gloom” e “One more shot“, insieriti nella raccolta “GRRR!“, mentre nel 2016 hanno pubblicato l’apprezzatissima raccolta di cover blues “Blue and lonesome“. Dopo aver deliziato i fan con “You can’t always get what you want”, suonata a distanza durante questo periodo di lockdown per il concerto One World Together At Home, il gruppo ha deciso di rilasciare un nuovo brano. Si tratta di “Living in a ghost town“, che suona tremendamente attuale ma, come ha spiegato Mick Jagger, in realtà è stato scritto un anno fa, in dieci minuti. Registrato a Londra e Los Angeles, il brano è stato poi completato in quest’ultima fase con i membri del gruppo in isolamento e rilasciato in queste ore, potete ascoltarlo qui sotto.

Living in a ghost town, il testo

I’m a ghost
Livin’ in a ghost town
I’m a ghost
Livin’ in a ghost town
You can come 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 like a ghost
Living in a ghost town, yeah

Once this place was hummin’
And the air was full of drummin’
The sound of cymbals crashin’
Glasses were all smashin’
Trumpets were all screamin’
Saxophones were blarin’
Nobody was carin’ if it’s day or not

Woah, woahI’m a ghost
Livin’ in a ghost town
I’m goin’ nowhere
Shut up all alone
So much time to lose
Just starin’ at my phone
Every night I am dreamin’ that you’ll come and creep in my bed
Please let this be over, not stuck in a world without end, my friend

Woah, woah
Woah, woah

Preachers were all preachin’
Charities beseechin’
Politicians dealin’
Thieves were happy stealin’
Widows were all weepin’
There’s no beds for us to sleep in
Always had the feelin’
It will all come tumblin’ down

I’m a ghost
Livin’ in a ghost town
You can look for me
But I can’t be foundWoah
We’re all livin’ in a ghost town (Woah)
Oh, livin’ in a ghost town (Woah)
We were so beautiful (Woah)
I was your man about town (Woah)
Livin’ in this ghost town (Woah)
Ain’t havin’ any fun (Woah)
If I wanna party (Woah)
It’s a party of one (Woah)
Woah
