Rolling Stones -Living in a Ghost Town (SOTD)

News on April 24th, Friday after Easters-after Bob Dylans Murder Most Foul, another rock legend(s) and Trexs, the -Old gods, almost dead-their Satanic Majesties ....The Rolling Stones release Living in a Ghost Town . their first new song since 2012 ! Cisstomised for the CH19 sitauation the video presents an empty London. The șlyrics go like this: 

 “Life was so beautiful / Then we all got locked down … Please let this be over / Stuck in a world without end.”

Elsewhere, Jagger sings of chaos (“Glasses were all smashing / Trumpets were all screaming”) and societal collapse:
Preachers were all preaching
Charities beseeching
Politicians dealing
Thieves were happy stealing
Widows were all weeping
There’s no beds left for us to sleep in
Always had the feeling
It would all come tumbling down.
more details on The Guardian, here. 
Living in a Ghost Town was apparently the product of recent recording sessions. By Jagger’s account, the lyrics were already eerily prescient – “about being in a place which was full of life, and then now bereft of life ... full of plague terms” – but were reworked to suit the current moment. They are certainly a far better attempt at coming up with something contemporary and newsy than A Bigger Bang’s clumsy Sweet Neo-Con or indeed Jagger’s Skepta-assisted solo single England Lost.
