The upcoming, deluxe re-issue of the Rolling Stones’ 1971 album Sticky Fingers—home to “Brown Sugar,” “Dead Flowers,” “Bitch,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking,” and “Wild Horses”—has made good on one of its first promises, via an acoustic version of “Wild Horses” that released Wednesday.
The Stones will support the release on their first North American stadium tour since 2007 for the 15-date Zip Code tour that kicks off May 24 (the re-issue is due out May 26) in San Diego and concludes July 15 in Quebec. When asked how much of the 1971 collection would be played on tour, Mick Jagger told Rolling Stone, “We’re floating the idea of playing the whole album. At the very least, we’ll play the songs we don’t normally play.” He continued, “It’s a really great album, but it has a lot of slow songs…I’m just worried it might be problematic in stadiums. Maybe we’d play it and everyone would say, ‘Great,’ but maybe they’ll get restless and start going to get drinks.”
Turns out even legends worry about holding your attention. “Wild Horses” is streaming below.
