The Rolling Stones documentary premiers this fall. And GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
CROSSFIRE HURRICANE AND GRRR!
Big things in store for The Rolling Stones. Not only is the legendary band releasing a new greatest hits collection, but also, their tumultuous story from socially blacklisted musicians, to timeless icons is being presented to the public in the film Crossfire Hurricane. "We're FIFTY!"
KINK's music director Brad Dolbeer says about the new track we just premiered, “Sometimes groups that have been around for a while release songs on their Greatest Hits albums that have been collecting dust for a number of years. Not the case with the new Stones song Doom and Gloom. This is the Rolling Stones at their best. Crunchy opening riff from Keith, the solid drumming from Charlie, and Mick at his best growling a very time appropriate lyric on the state of the world. The best song they’ve had in years…"
Check out the lyric video below.
GRRR!, a greatest hits album by the band. November 12, 2012 (November 13th in North America) marks the date fans can pick up GRRR! In any of the five formats it is being released in: the 3-CD version including 50 tracks and a 24-page booklet; the 3-CD, 50 track Deluxe Edition that includes a 36-page hardback book and five post cards; the Super Deluxe Edition Box Set with a 4-CD version including 80 tracks, 7’ vinyl, a hardback book, 5 postcards, and a poster in a presentation box; or a 12’ Vinyl Box Set with a 5×12’ vinyl including 50 tracks packaged in a case bound LP box. GRRR! will feature two new studio recordings completed in Paris in August 2012 titled, “Gloom and Doom” and “One More Shot.”
After a year of production with the full cooperation of The Rolling Stones, Crossfire Hurricane will have its world premiere in Leicester Square, London on October 18th, 2012. Fans over the pond in the U.S. can watch the documentary on HBO on November 15th, 2012.
A one-minute trailer (shown below) frames the Stones as the antithesis of The Beatles’ good-humored public persona, ensuring a film that will capture the provocative livelihood signature to The Rolling Stones. From turbulence like the Redlands drug bust, the descent of Brain Jones, and 1969’s unruly Altamont Festival, to enlightening moments such as the formation of the Jagger-Richards songwriting anomaly, this 150 minute documentary covers a career matched by no other.
