Blues cover is lifted from new album 'Blue & Lonesome'
The Rolling Stones have shared a video for their cover of blues song ‘Hate To See You Go’.
The track is lifted from their upcoming album of blues covers, ‘Blue & Lonesome’. It will be released on December 2 through Polydor.
‘Hate To See You Go’ is one of two songs written by legendary blues musician Little Walter to feature on the band’s first studio album in over a decade.
Watch the video below. It combines studio footage with shots of Chicago, New York and other cities.
‘Blue & Lonesome’ was recorded in just three days at British Grove Studios in west London and sees the band return to “their roots and the passion for blues music”.
The 12-track album features covers of songs by Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Eddie Taylor and Howlin’ Wolf. It sees the band joined on record by touring members Darryl Jones (bass), Chuck Leavell (keyboards) and Matt Clifford (keyboards). Eric Clapton also features on two tracks.
Co-producer Don Was says of the record: “This album is manifest testament to the purity of their love for making music, and the blues is, for the Stones, the fountainhead of everything they do.”
