The Rolling Stones, English rock band, have come through with ‘Living In A Ghost Town’, their first single since 2012.
The less than four-minute project sees the group examining the global impact of the coronavirus pandemic, particularly how it has fizzled movements and brought about lockdown characterised by boredom.
‘Living In A Ghost Town’ chronicled what life looks like before the advent of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel virus, and what it is presently.
“Life was so beautiful, now we all got locked down/Feel like a ghost, living in a ghost town,” Mick Jagger, the band’s lead vocals, was heard saying in the song.
In an interview with Apple Music, Jagger had revealed that the song was recorded a year ago in Los Angeles but was “finished in lockdown.”
“We thought would resonate through the times we’re living in. It wasn’t written for now but it was written about being in a place which was full of life, and then now that’s all bereft of life, so to speak,” he told the outlet.
“And when I went back to what I’d written originally lyrically, it was all full of plague terms and things like that.
“Keith Richards and I both had the idea that we should release it. But I said, ‘Well I’ve got to rewrite it – some of it is not going to work and some of it was a bit weird and a bit too dark’.”
The Stones recently made headlines for their participation in ‘One World: Together At Home’, a visual concert, aimed at supporting global fight against the pandemic.
