In late August, the Rolling Stones gathered in a Paris studio to record two new songs for GRRR!, a 50th anniversary hits collection to be released November 13th. While "Doom and Gloom," a political rocker written by Mick Jagger, was released last month, today "One More Shot" appeared on YouTube ahead of its official premiere on Thursday.

Keith Richards brought the track to the band, with a slashing open-G riff and Mick Jagger howling, "Give me one more shot/That's all I got." Stones fans may pick up echoes of "Street Fighting Man" in the riff, while the melody is reminiscent of 1989's "Mixed Emotions."

"It's got all this fucking power," producer Don Was told Rolling Stone in September. "Everyone was smiling. You can recognize it's the Rolling Stones from a mile away."

The Stones are in Paris right now rehearsing for four upcoming shows in London and New York

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
