The Rolling Stones are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their album Tattoo You, which of course opens with the iconic track "Start Me Up."

In celebration of the anniversary, the Stones are releasing a new master of the record with nine previously unheard tracks, including an early version of "Start Me Up," which had a much more reggae vibe.
