The upcoming re-issue of Sticky Fingers promises plenty of rare treats and bonus material for Stones fans, and now we’ve got our first taste.
See below for a new lyric video for a previously unheard, stripped-down version of the band’s classic “Wild Horses,” which harks back to the album’s iconic Andy Warhol zipper cover.
The expanded release of the band’s 1971 album lands 26 May in North America (a day earlier rest of the world) and contains alternative version of “Brown Sugar” featuring Eric Clapton, unreleased interpretations of “Bitch,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and “Dead Flowers” as well as five tracks recorded live at London’s The Roundhouse in 1971 including “Honky Tonk Women” and “Midnight Rambler.”
The super deluxe edition will also feature Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out!, a 13-track recording of a Stones gig in Leeds in March 1971, shortly before their ‘exile’ in France began.
Produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller, Sticky Fingers was recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Olympic Studios in London and Mick’s English country home Stargroves, and topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Mick Jagger said the group is considering playing the 1971 album in full on this summer’s North America tour.
“We’re floating the idea of playing the whole album,” Jagger told RS. “At the very least, we’ll play the songs we don’t normally play.”
The Stones kick off their summer tour — dubbed the Zip Code tour — on May 24 in San Diego with tickets going on general sale April 13.
