Triple M Record Of The Week: The Rolling Stones
‘Just Your Fool’ is Triple M's Record Of The Week.
Five decades in the making and just three days to record, Rock’n’Roll greats The Rolling Stones are back with their brand new single ‘Just Your Fool’ from the upcoming new album Blue & Lonesome.
The new music takes the band back to their roots and the passion for blues music which has always been at the heart and soul of The Rolling Stones.
Blue & Lonesome sees The Rolling Stones tipping their hats to their early days as a blues band when they played the music of Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Eddie Taylor, Little Walter and Howlin’ Wolf - artists whose songs are featured on this album.
Their approach to the album was that it should be spontaneous and played live in the studio without overdubs. The band - Mick Jagger (vocals & harp), Keith Richards (guitar), Charlie Watts (drums), and Ronnie Wood (guitar) were joined by their long time touring sidemen Darryl Jones (bass), Chuck Leavell (keyboards) and Matt Clifford (keyboards) and, for two of the twelve tracks, by old friend Eric Clapton, who happened to be in the next studio making his own album.
Blue & Lonesome OUT ON DECEMBER 2 - PREORDER AVAILABLE NOW
WHAT IS RECORD OF THE WEEK?:
The Triple M Record Of The Week is what it says it is…
Each week Triple M selects a song from all the new music being considered for the playlist as the ‘Record of The Week’.
It’s a song, sometimes an album we think is going to do big things and we want to give it a head start and feature it on air across the week.
We’ll also get your feedback on it and feature it in the Music Jury.
So far we’ve featured new music from Kings Of Leon, Disturbed, Catfish And The Bottlemens, Blink 182, Sting and Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as the great new songs from local legends The Amity Affliction, Bernard Fanning and Birds of Tokyo.
