The rock and coffee giants join forces
The Rolling Stones are the latest act set to release an album through the coffee giant Starbucks.
The album, titled ‘Rarities 1971-2003’, will be released through Starbucks outlets and general stores in the US and in Canada from November 22.
However, The Rolling Stones album will not be exclusive to the coffee house, unlike other recent records.
Alanis Morissette released her latest album, an acoustic version of her 1995 smash ‘Jagged Little Pill’, through Starbucks six weeks before its’ proper release, which resulted in HMV Canada pulling all her works from the shelves in protest.
Bob Dylan also released his ‘Live At the Gaslight 1962’ album through the chain earlier this year.
The 16-track Stones compilation features live concert tracks, B-sides and cover versions.
Mick Jagger told Billboard: “With every studio session, there are always songs that never appear on the final album and at the time you think, what a shame that song did not make it.”
