Rolling Stones man releases previously unreleased tracks

Mick Jagger has announced he will release his very first career-spanning retrospective this autumn.

‘The Very Best Of Mick Jagger’ is due out in the US on October 2, and features 17 tracks spanning The Rolling Stones frontman’s solo career from 1970 onwards.

The album includes duets with the likes of Bono, David Bowie and reggae legend Peter Tosh, among others.

It also features three previously unreleased tracks, including ‘Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup)’, which was produced by John Lennon and recorded in 1973 in Los Angeles. The other two tracks are demos from Jagger‘s ‘Wandering Spirit’ session with famed producer Rick Rubin.
