Text from Mike this morning, catching me on my way to the shoppes to be first in line to buy the new Stones…
As was reported yesterday, it seemed the Stones would drop their new blues record today. Turns out, it’s a pre-order beginning today, album drops December. GAH!
This is, of course, a bit of a let-down for me. In retrospect, it did seem odd that they’d drop a release with no preamble, but I was more than ready to roll with it. Alas, it is not to be.
For today, all we have is more info on the release:
Title: Blue & Lonesome
Release Date: December 2, 2016
Just Your Fool
Commit A Crime
Blue and Lonesome
All Of Your Love
I Gotta Go
Everybody Knows About My Good Thing
Ride ‘Em On Down
Hate To See You Go
Hoo Doo Blues
Just Like I Treat You
I Can’t Quit You Baby
Dammit. Now I gotta wait ’til December 2. I think that’s a bit of false advertising on Don Was’ part. The way he said it, it sounded like the release was today. If it’s some dumbass way to drum up excitement, he may have a bit of a disconnect with Stones fans. As if we needed teasing to be excited about a new Stones release… Anyway. Mark your calendars for December, folks!
