On August 24, 1981, The Rolling Stones released their 16th U.K. and 18th U.S. studio album, 'Tattoo You,' composed mostly of studio outtakes recorded during the '70s and featuring arguably the band's most well-known song, "Start Me Up."
In celebration of the four-decade milestone, the band is offering up the new single, "Living In The Heart Of Love," as a thank you, and you can hear it now!
The band shared Thursday morning news of a 40th anniversary edition of Tattoo You which will arrive on October 22. "A whole new experience… 9 new unheard tracks," they captioned. "Alongside an all-new 2021 remaster of the classic album & Stones infamous Wembley Stadium ‘82 live show. Available in expansive super deluxe boxsets, on 2CD & 2LP, limited edition picture disc, super limited clear LP & more."
Mick & Co. teased fans with posts on their social media accounts earlier this week showing Stones-related flash artwork, a style that the inked among us will recognize from numerous tattoo shop walls.
Honestly, whoever came up with the flash work above should get a nice bonus from the band -- there will definitely be more than a few of these in the stands of their recently rescheduled No Filter tour.
The trek will now begin on September 26 and will continue through 13 cities including 10 of the original dates. While unable to fulfill shows previously scheduled in Vancouver, Louisville, Cleveland, and Buffalo, the Stones have added three new stops in NOLA, L.A., and Vegas to the list. See the full list of dates above.
