Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger has revealed he wasn’t very excited on releasing three Rolling Stones tracks from the band’s archives which were recorded during sessions for the bands 1973 record ‘Goats Head Soup’.
The songs ‘Criss Cross’ , ‘All the Rage’ and ‘Scarlet’ have now been included as bonus tracks on a new version of the album which is released this Friday September 4th.
Speaking to The Sunday Times he said: “They said, ‘We’ve found these three tracks’,”
“I said, ‘They’re all terrible.’ That’s always my initial reaction, ‘They’re all useless!’ I mean, actually, I always liked the songs, but they weren’t finished”.
However Jagger changed him mind when he realised the band could bring the tracks up to scratch.
“Sonically they still sound like they were recorded then, even if they weren’t perfect,” Jagger said.
“You can make them sound a little better than they did. But I think these three songs are all up there with the rest of the songs on this record”.
The band recently released an official video for ‘Scarlett’ (the original version) featuring Irish actor Paul Mescal know from his Emmy-nominated role in Normal People.
