Additionally, the track features Darryl Jones on bass, and Matt Clifford playing keyboards, French horn, saxophone, and flugelhorn.
On speaking about the track, Mick 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. We’ve worked on it in isolation. And here it is – It’s called ‘Living in Ghost Town’ – I hope you like it.”
Keith Richards also said,
“So, let’s cut a long story short. We cut this track well over a year ago in L.A. for part of a new album, an ongoing thing, and then shit hit the fan Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it , “Living in a Ghost Town”. Stay safe!”
Charlie Watts added,
“I enjoyed working on this track. I think it captures a mood and I hope people who listen to it will agree.”
Ronnie Wood said his piece as well:
“Thanks so much for all your messages these past few weeks, it means so much to us that you enjoy the music. So we have a brand new track for you, we hope you enjoy it. It has a haunting melody, it’s called ‘Living in A Ghost Town’.”
