As part of an upcoming reissue of their 1981 album Tattoo You, The Rolling Stones have shared a brand new unheard track.
'Troubles A' Comin', a cover of a tune by the American R&B vocal quartet Chi-Lites, is one of nine previously unreleased tunes included on the release on a "Lost & Found: Rarities" disc, recorded during the same era as the 1981 album.
The reissue of the album will also feature a live recording of The Stones at Wembley Stadium in 1982 and a 2021 remaster of the original record.
In August of this year, their drummer Charlie Watts passed away at the age of 80. Alongside 78-year-old frontman Sir Mick Jagger and 77-year-old guitarist Keith Richards, Watts was among the longest-standing members of the Stones.
In Hot Press' obituary for Charlie, Pat Carty wrote that "Watts never considered himself a rock n’ roller at all, that was Mick and Keith’s job as far as he was concerned.
He was a jazzer to his perfectly polished, custom made shoes and at odds with the lifestyles of his mates. The wife he leaves behind is the same Shirley Shepherd he married in 1964, they had one daughter, Seraphina, and Watts, by all accounts, was a devoted father and grandfather."
