Rolling Stones unveil details of new live album

The Rolling Stones have unveiled the details of their next album, 'Shine A Light', to be released by Universal Music / Polydor. The album is from the Martin Scorsese-directed concert film 'Shine A Light' and will be released simultaneously with the movie.

From the unmistakeable opening riff of 'Jumping Jack Flash' to the classic sounds of Tumbling Dice, Sympathy For The Devil, All Down The Line and Start Me Up plus some unusual gems from the Stones catalogue - 'You Got The Silver' and 'Faraway Eyes' - 'Shine A Light' will be released on 7 April 2008. Included are three stunning collaborations - with blues legend Buddy Guy on 'Champagne and Reefer', Jack White from White Stripes on 'Loving Cup' while Christina Aguilera duets with Mick Jagger on 'Live With Me'.

'Shine A Light' will be released on double CD worldwide with a single disc version available in the US.

'Shine a Light' is a 22 track Rolling Stones live double album recorded during two memorable nights at New York's Beacon Theatre in 2006. Produced by The Glimmer Twins and mixed by Bob Clearmountain, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood are supported by their long-standing backline including bassist Darryl Jones, Chuck Leavell keyboards, Bobby Keys on saxophone, backing vocals Lisa Fischer, Blondie Chaplin and Bernard Fowler, and the horn section - Tim Ries, Michael Davies and Kent Smith.

UK Cinemagoers will have the chance to experience a Stones concert as never before - as the fifth member of the band, from the front row and from behind the scenes.
