A new single featuring pop icon Lady Gaga and soul legend Stevie Wonder. Enough to make your mouth water while waiting for the release of the record Hackney Diamondsscheduled for October 20 in stores.
On September 6, the Rolling Stones revealed during a press conference broadcast live all the details of the release of their 26th album, Hackney Diamonds. For the occasion, the legendary rockers revealed a first extract from this highly anticipated record, by broadcasting the clip for the single Angry. Today, they return with a second extract on which they invited Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder, to discover now.
A second collaboration for the Rolling Stones and Lady Gaga
This is not the first time that Mick Jagger and his clique have collaborated with Lady Gaga. More than ten years ago, in December 2012, these artists had already shared the same stage: that of the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The interpreter of Bad Romance then joined the Stones to sing the global hit Gimme Shelter on the occasion of the last date of their world tour 50 and Counting Tourcelebrating the group’s half-century of existence.
And clearly, this was just the beginning. To the site’s journalists UNILADMick Jagger explained how this new collaboration came about:
“We had done some gigs with her before, and we were playing a song that I had written on the piano, some kind of gospel, and she was in the studio next door and she said, ‘Is- can I come?’ She came, joined us and we sang together and we started again the next day to put some order in.”
On the new song Sweet Sounds Of Heaven, we also find Stevie Wonder, another old friend of the Rolling Stones. During the British group’s American tour in 1972, Stevie Wonder, who was then only 22 years old, opened for the concerts, which generally concluded with a collaborative medley mixing hits (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction And Uptight (Everything’s Alright).
Sweet Sounds Of Heaven: the Stones sing the blues
After the very energetic Angrytime for a calmer and calmer song with Sweet Sounds of Heaven. In a mixture of gospel and psychedelic blues Paint it Blackin no less than 7 minutes and 22 seconds, the artists give their all, for our greatest pleasure.
This prestigious collaboration will not be the only one on this album, since we will also find Paul McCartney on Cock My Head OffElton John on piano on the titles Get Close And Live By The Sword, as well as Bill Wyman, the Stones’ first bassist, who left the group in 1993 and responded to pay tribute to his friend, the late Charlie Watts. It’s certain: we long to be able to listen Hackney Diamonds in its entirety.
