Rolling Stones' new single(s) to be premiered on July 22

Streets Of Love / Rough Justice, the new double single of the Rolling Stones will be on the radio tomorrow. Here in Argentina I just heard a minute of Streets Of Love and I'm surprised.

Two singles, a mid tempo (Streets Of Love) for the soft radios and a rocker (Rough Justice) for the rock radios. I only heard a minute and with the guy on the TV talking.

There are those who are saying that about U2.

I'm anxious to hear it...

Streets Of Love sucks, but Rough Justice is the best Stones track in years!!!
OMFG, it rocks my socks.

Rough Justice sounds like Stones circa 1971-72. Nice surprise.

"Streets of Love" is a generic dial-a-ballad. Might work if they sounded more into it.

"Rough Justice" is noisy, I guess. It rhymes "fox" with "cocks," so it's not all bad, but it still doesn't do much for me.

They're not really songs so much as excuses to tour anyway.

Why do they even bother recording new albums? They tour with mostly their old (ie. good) stuff anyway, so all this album business is a huge waste of time and resources.

Yeah, they're basically human jukeboxes now.

Bizarrely, that MP3 of "Streets of Love" omits the first verse:

Hey, we're gonna play a new song
So go to the bathroom
Before the line gets long


Pure poetry, really.

They'd release another compilation, but they used that excuse last time.

haha i laugh at u2 fans who say that the stones are to old to record or tour or whatever. agreed, the last two u2 albums (20-25 years into their carreer) are way better then what the stones produced 20-25 years into their carreer (i.e. undercover and dirty work), but only maybe slightly better than what the stones did 25-30 years into their carrer (steel wheels and voodoo lounge). i can only hope u2 will make future albums that top those albums. and, as most of you, i will probably love those albums anyway.

now on topic: rough justice rocks hard!!!!!!! it is a great surprise and im very much looking forward to hearing the entire album. streets of love is soso, but i do like hearing mick sing i, i, i, i, - i, i, i with his typical mick voice. that alone makes it worthwile for me. the third leaked track oh no not you again is really cool. 2 out of 3 are great / really promising for the album. cant wait!!

ps u2 and the stones are and have always been my favorite two bands.

While the Stones can occasionally churn out a great single ("Don't Stop" from Forty Licks was catchy), the main point is that they simply aren't relevant anymore, and haven't been for a while. Part of this is that the albums themselves don't really carry much weight. Steel Wheels wasn't bad, especially considering how terribly dated most other 80's albums sound. Neither was Voodoo Lounge. But they just weren't "important", and said nothing new. Mick Jagger is a capitalist pig who will sell the rights to any Stones song at the drop of a hat, and it's clear that his main goal in life is to make money; not exactly a noble pursuit (although what would you expect from a graduate of a business school?). Contrast this with Bono, who is still working out childhood issues on record and on stage, and taking on new ones as well. That's the difference between the bands. U2 never were as decadent as the Stones, but they didn't burn out on their own legend either, and never really stood for anything besides danger, something hard to pull off when you're over 35.

The Stones tours tend to receive more notice than the actual albums, which just proves that they are a revival act, nothing more.

The last truly great Stones album may be It's Only Rock And Roll, and that's arguable. While Some Girls has some great tracks, it certainly isn't on the level of the other classics.

Rough Justice

From Billboard:
The Rolling Stones' new single, "Streets of Love"/"Rough Justice," will be released Aug. 22 in the U.K. as a limited edition, numbered CD and on seven-inch vinyl. "Streets of Love" was given its first British airplay on Friday on national AC/pop station BBC Radio 2 and has been made "single of the week" by the station this week. "Rough Justice" is expected to gain favor at more rock-oriented radio outlets including national broadcaster Virgin Radio.

"Streets of Love" was recorded in summer 2004 and produced by Don Was. Both tracks will be included on the band's first studio album since 1997's "Bridges To Babylon," which is due in early September and has yet to be given a confirmed title. The Stones are currently in their regular rehearsal home of Toronto preparing for the upcoming Onstage tour, which begins Aug. 21 at Boston's Fenway Park.
