Rolling Stones debut new single "Doom and Gloom"

By Malcolm Abram Published: October 12, 2012

 Mick, Keef, Ronnie and Charlie a.k.a. The Rolling Stones (inc.) are still making music, and here's the new single from the Glimmer Twins and company that will be on their upcoming Greatist Hits compilation (yeah, that's right, yet ANOTHER compilation/touring excuse because "Tumblin' Dice and "Start Me Up" are so hard to find...)

Anyway, the tune is a sneering, chunky-chorded blues rocker with a dash of lyrical social awareness...Get ready to hear this song as the going-to-commercial music bed in every televised sports event for the next several weeks (perhaps finally pushing out the Black Keys "Gold On The Ceiling")

..Love it? Hate it?



Doom And Gloom marks the first time that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have been in the studio together for seven years. Taken from the forthcoming album GRRR! Greatest Hits, Doom And Gloom was recorded in Paris and produced by longtime Rolling Stones producer Don Was, who has worked with the band on five previous albums (Voodoo Lounge/ Stripped/ Bridges To Babylon/ Live Licks/ A Bigger Bang), with the radio mix produced by Jeff Bhasker.


GRRR! Greatest Hits, out November 13th from ABKCO/Interscope/UMe, is a must for Stones fans featuring a second brand new recording One More Shot, as well as classic tracks Gimme Shelter, (I Cant Get No) Satisfaction, Jumpin Jack Flash, Street Fighting Man, Start Me Up, Beast of Burden, Tumbling Dice, Love Is Strong and more.
