Earlier this month, The Rolling Stones released their first new original music since 2012, a single aptly named Living in a Ghost Town.

Frontman Mick Jagger announced the surprise release on Twitter, saying: "The Stones were in the studio recording new material before the lockdown & one song - Living In A Ghost Town - we thought would resonate through the times we're living in."

Mick later said to Apple Music, that the track was actually written a year ago adding: "It wasn't written for now, but it was just one of those odd things,".

Along with the single the iconic band released a video that features the Mother City's Sea Point Promenade and more. 


The 76-year-old sings lyrics that seem to echo everyone's lives right now. Including the lines:  "Life was so beautiful / Then we all got locked down,".
