TATOO YOU (40TH ANNIVERSARY)

OUT NOW!

 

22 OCTOBER 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - The Rolling Stones today release 40th anniversary, expanded deluxe editions of their chart-topping, multi-platinum 1981 album Tattoo You via Universal Music/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.

 

THE ROLLING STONES’ TATTOO YOU (40TH ANNIVERSARY) IS OUT NOW WORLDWIDE LISTEN HERE

 

The newly remastered set, released today on October 22, is accompanied by no fewer than nine previously unreleased tracks from the era, including the unheard "Come To The Ball". It follows the unveiling of the irresistible rocker "Living In The Heart Of Love" on August 19 and the never before released "Troubles A’ Comin", an infectious and multi-faceted cover of the Chi-Lites original, on September 30.

 

The release comes 40 years after the celebrated album was first released on August 24, 1981, and as the rock 'n' roll legends have returned to the road on the critically-acclaimed No Filter tour in the US, which kicked off on September 26 in St. Louis and extends into November.

 

Anticipation for the new editions of Tattoo You has been high among Stones devotees and new admirers alike. The 40th anniversary remaster of the original 11-track album includes such enduring favourites as "Hang Fire", "Waiting On A Friend" (showcasing jazz saxophone giant Sonny Rollins) and of course the opening track that's been a band signature ever since, "Start Me Up". The deluxe formats also include Lost & Found: Rarities and Still Life: Wembley Stadium 1982.


The Lost & Found disc contains no fewer than nine songs from the period of the album's original release, newly completed and enhanced with additional vocals and guitar by the band. Among these, "Living In The Heart Of Love" is a quintessential Stones rock workout, complete with urgent guitar licks and fine piano detail.

 
Other highlights of Lost & Found include a killer version of "Shame, Shame, Shame", first recorded in 1963 by one of the band's blues heroes, Jimmy Reed; their reading of Dobie Gray's soul gem "Drift Away"; and a fascinating reggae-tinged version of "Start Me Up".

Still Life: Wembley Stadium 1982 is an unmissable memento of the band's London show in June of that year on the Tattoo You tour. The mighty 26-track set is packed with Stones mega-hits, including an opening "Under My Thumb" and all-time greats such as "Let's Spend The Night Together", "(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction" and "Honky Tonk Women".

 
The Wembley show has covers of the Temptations' "Just My Imagination," Eddie Cochran's "Twenty Flight Rock," the Miracles' "Going To A Go Go" and early rock 'n' roller the Big Bopper's "Chantilly Lace." It also features early live workouts for tracks from the then-new Tattoo You such as "Start Me Up", "Neighbours", "Little T&A" and "Hang Fire".

 

Universal Music's Tattoo You (40th Anniversary Edition) follows the 2020 reissue of the Stones' 1973 landmark Goats Head Soup, which took the album back to No. 1 in the UK. Remarkably, this marked the second time their peerless catalogue had produced a UK chart-topper twice over, after 2010's deluxe edition of their 1972 staple Exile On Main St.

On first release, Tattoo You, produced by the Glimmer Twins with associate producer Chris Kimsey, topped the charts in the US (where it went quadruple platinum), Canada, Australia and across much of Europe, with gold and platinum awards around the world.
