‘The Rolling Stones’has announced they will release a greatest hits album entitled ‘GRRR!’, which will feature a collection of the group’s best known tracks.
These timeless tracks will be accompanied by two new songs entitled “One Last Shot” and “Doom and Gloom”. The new songs were recorded by the band’s Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts in Paris.
The latest addition of music making marks the group’s first recordings in seven years.
The greatest hits album will commemorate the group’s 50th year in the music business. It will also offer fans a unique treat; those who will buy the album can choose between a three-CD album with 50 songs and an epic 80-track version labeled ‘super deluxe’.
The album will be fronted by a painting of a gorilla by American artist Walton Ford.
The alum comes a decade after the 40-track ‘Forty Licks’ greatest hits album which the band released on their 40th year.
Prior to announcing the release of their new album, the Stones hinted about a ‘special announcement’, which fans thoughts would involve new live shows in London and New York.
The last time the band was seen live onstage was in August 2007 during their O2 gig.
In September of 2011, however, Sir Mick made it clear the group were not planning to perform live anytime soon by saying: “Don’t hold your breath”, as quoted by The Sun.
