Rolling Stones Release iTunes Collection


The band continue their 50th anniversary celebrations by launching a one-stop destination for their discography.

The Rolling Stones destination on the iTunes Store will feature all of the band’s indispensable classic studio albums in pristine sound quality, from their eponymous 1964 debut, The Rolling Stones, No. 2 in 1965, to 1968’s Beggars Banquet, Sticky Fingers in 1971, Exile On Main St. in 1972 and beyond, providing a handy one-stop opportunity for aficionados to acquire their catalogue.

Fans will also be able to download a ‘Rolling Stones 50’ eBook, a Rolling Stones app, and and a host of recent documentaries made on the band including Charlie Is My Darling-Ireland 1965 and the award winning Crossfire Hurricane.

Earlier this month, Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood spoke about the possibility of the band releasing new material.

The legendary rock’n’roll band have been playing a number of high-profile live dates this year as part of their ’50 & Counting’ tour and are set to headline Glastonbury later this month. But in an interview with Boston radio station WZLX, the guitarist said they were trying to fit in some recording sessions into their schedule.

Speaking about the band’s recent gigs, Wood said: “We’re playing better than ever. The shows are the best we’ve ever done. These shows have proved to be a kick in the pants for us. Not only can we do it, we’re better than ever.
Closest gigs to us here in Ireland all mean a boat or plane ride,  Saturday June 29, at Glasto, or two dates at London’s Hyde Park on July 6 and 13.
