“WILD HORSES (LIVE)” FEAT. FLORENCE WELCH IS OUT TODAY
ALBUM PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE NOW
14 March 2019 (Toronto, ON) - The Rolling Stones today announced the release of a brand-new Best Of compilation album, Honk. Featuring the biggest hits and classic cuts from every Rolling Stones studio album from 1971 to 2016’s Blue & Lonesome, Honk will be released April 19 via Polydor/Interscope/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
The 3CD deluxe version and digital equivalent will collect 36 essential Stones’ tracks including eight Top 10 singles: “Brown Sugar”, “Tumbling Dice”, “Angie”, “It’s Only Rock’n’Roll (But I Like It)”, “Fool To Cry”, “Miss You”, “Emotional Rescue” and “Start Me Up”. Also available will be a 1CD and 2LP edition featuring 20 Stones’ hits. Bringing the band’s story up to date, Honk also contains hit single “Doom & Gloom” – recorded in 2012 – as well as “Just Your Fool”, “Ride ‘Em On Down” and “Hate To See You Go” from the band’s 2016’s GRAMMY Award-winning, No. 1 album, Blue & Lonesome.
The bonus disc of the Deluxe 3CD edition includes 10 live tracks recorded at packed-out stadiums around the world during the band’s more recent sold-out tours. These include “Dead Flowers” with Americana star Brad Paisley recorded in Philadelphia in June 2013, “Bitch” with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl (both during the 50 And Counting tour), as well as an electrifying version of “Wild Horses” featuring Florence Welch from the band’s show in London in May 2018 during last year’s leg of the No Filter tour.
A Deluxe 4LP coloured vinyl will also be released as a special fan edition, featuring the 36 studio tracks and the bonus 10 live tracks. This handsome heavyweight vinyl set will come housed in a special slip box. It is available exclusively via MusicVaultz.com.
Canadian fans will have access to a limited-edition Fan Pack version of Honk that will include the standard CD edition, an exclusive pair of sunglasses and an exclusive koozie – both featuring the Canadian Rolling Stones’ Tongue!
Honk showcases the band’s remarkable run of hits. Taken from the band’s imperial phase, Honk features “Happy” (Exile On Main Street, 1972), “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)” (Goats Head Soup, 1973) and “Beast Of Burden” (Some Girls, 1978) alongside later singles like “Waiting On A Friend” (Tattoo You, 1981), “Undercover (Of The Night” (Undercover, 1983), “Harlem Shuffle” (Dirty Work, 1986), “Rock And A Hard Place” (Steel Wheels, 1989), “Love Is Strong” (Voodoo Lounge, 1994), “Out Of Control” (Bridges To Babylon, 1997), “Rough Justice” (A Bigger Bang, 2005) and “Just Your Fool” (Blue & Lonesome, 2016).
Honk also highlights classic Stones’ album cuts – “Bitch” (Sticky Fingers, 1971), “Rocks Off” (Exile On Main Street, 1972), “Dancing With Mr. D” (Goats Head Soup, 1973) and “Respectable” (Some Girls, 1978) – as well as stand-alone tracks such as “Don’t Stop” (Forty Licks, 2002) and “One More Shot” (GRRR!, 2012).
The 10 live tracks are similarly wide-ranging, drawn from three of the band’s most recent tours: the 50 And Counting Tour, the Zip Code Tour and the No Filter Tour. These tours were powerful reminders of the Stones’ formidable gifts for performance and songwriting as the band treated audiences to hits and deep cuts drawn from the full span of their illustrious career.
On Honk, “Get Off My Cloud”, “Let’s Spend The Night Together” and “Under My Thumb” (recorded in Cardiff, Manchester, and London, respectively, during the 2018 No Filter tour) ably represent the band’s groundbreaking early-mid ‘60s years; while the version of “She’s A Rainbow” from Paris, 2017, provides a relatively rare outing of this classic piece of psychedelic Stones. The appearance of “Dancing With Mr. D” meanwhile, recorded in Arnhem in 2017, marks the song’s acclaimed return to the band’s set lists for the first time in 44 years.
The Rolling Stones will be touring the USA with their No Filter tour starting April 20, 2019, and are currently recording tracks for their next studio album.
