The track will feature on the band’s forthcoming expanded edition of their 1973 ‘Goats Head Soup’ album, which arrives in September.
A new video for the track is now also expected to arrive on August 6 at 7pm BST on The Rolling Stones official YouTube channel. Featuring Paul Mescal, the video will also contain a special introduction from Mick Jagger.
You can listen to the track here:
“I remember first jamming this with Jimmy and Keith [Richards] in Ronnie’s basement studio. It was a great session,” Mick Jagger remembered of the song, which you can hear below.
Keith Richards added: “My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session. They were just leaving, and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay.
“We weren’t actually cutting it as a track: it was basically for a demo, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it. But it came out well — with a line-up like that, you know, we better use it.”
