Full Official Unboxing: Their Satanic Majesties Request - 50th Anniversary Special Edition

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones album "Their Satanic Majesties Request", ABKCO Music is releasing a special edition deluxe double vinyl/double hybrid Super Audio CD (compatible with all CD players) package on September 22. The set contains both the stereo and mono versions of every song, all newly remastered by Bob Ludwig.

 

The Satanic Majesties reissue is due out September 22 and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and UDiscoverMusic.com.

Another big development comes via Mick Jagger, who dropped two new solo tracks himself recently.  “Gotta Get A Grip” and “England Lost” can be heard below.

As to why he suddenly released two new solo tracks, Jagger gave his reasons in the following statement:  “I started writing these two songs in April and wanted them out straight away.  Doing a whole album often takes a long time even after finishing it with all the record company preparations and global release set up.  It’s always refreshing to get creative in a different fashion and I feel a slight throwback to a time when you could be a bit more free and easy by recording on the hoof and putting it out there immediately.  I didn’t want to wait until next year when these two tracks might lose any impact and mean nothing.”

Both “Get A Grip” and “England Lost” can be found on multiple digital and streaming platforms.
