Living In A Ghost Town is a brand new song from The Rolling Stones, which frontman Mick Jagger says "resonates through the times that we're living in right now".
Recorded in Los Angeles over a year ago for their forthcoming album, the Stones say the new track "captures the mood" many of us are feeling while living under the pandemic restrictions.
Speaking ahead of the track's release on Thursday, Jagger said: '‘So the Stones were in the studio recording some new material before the lockdown and there was one song we thought would resonate through the times that we’re living in right now."

Describing it as the song as "haunting", Ronnie Wood also thanked fans for their messages of support. He said: "Thanks so much for all your messages these past few weeks, it means so much to us that you enjoy the music."
The full video was filmed during the Covid-19 restrictions in London.
