The Rolling Stones have their first #1 on iTunes with their new song “Living In A Ghost Town”. The track, released last week, took the top spot on the digital platform in over 20 countries around the world. “Living in a Ghost Town” is the band’s first new song since 2012 and their first #1 in 40 years.
“Living in a Ghost Town” was recorded by the band over a year ago as part of a new album, but given the current times, the Stones felt it needed to be released sooner than later.
“…shit hit the fan [and] Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it,” Keith Richards said in a video statement.
Mick Jagger says they felt the song would “resonate through the times that we’re living in right now.”
