Rolling Stones Unveil Previously Unreleased ‘Troubles A’ Comin” Cover
The Rolling Stones have recorded countless songs over the years, some of which never even made it to an album. But with anniversary reissues opening up a second chance to make a first impression, Mick Jagger and the crew are making the most of it. Currently celebrating the 40th anniversary of their 1981 Tattoo You album with a remastered and expanded edition, the band has just revealed their cover of the Chi-Lites' "Troubles A' Comin'." Take a listen in the player below.
This newly expanded edition includes nine previously unheard tracks that all came about during the recording and promotion of the classic Tattoo You album. This version of "Troubles A' Comin'" was recorded in 1979 in Paris during the period when bassist Bill Wyman was still a prominent member of the band. It's a guitar-driven track that is bolstered by that Mick Jagger swagger.
