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

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
