The Rolling Stones announced Tuesday that they will release “Doom And Gloom,” one of the two new songs from their upcoming career-spanning collection, GRRR!, this Thursday on iTunes. The song will premiere on England’s BBC Radio 2 and will be available for download after that. The group also released the tracklisting from GRRR!.
The Rolling Stones have two new songs, and they’ll be available on a new collection called “GRRR!,” due out on November 13. “Gloom And Doom” and “One Last Shot” were recorded at their recent sessions in Paris, France.
In recent years particularly, labels like Rhino and Sony Legacy have released more best-of collections and box sets than ever. But how many is too many? If nearly all the compilations are identical in tracklisting, what’s the point?
Rock legend [lastfm]Steve Winwood [/lastfm]has personally selected the songs that will be featured in a career retrospective package that is set to be released by Island Records/UMe on June 8.
