The Rolling Stones recently dropped their surprise new single “Living in a Ghost Town,” their first original composition since “Doom and Gloom” and “One More Shot” off the 2012 compilation album GRRR!
“It wasn’t written for now, but it was just one of those odd things,” Keith Richards said of the track. “It was written about being in a place that was full of life but is now bereft of life, so to speak…I was just jamming on the guitar and wrote it really quickly in like 10 minutes.”
