The Rolling Stones have shared their latest single ‘Sweet Sounds Of Heaven’ featuring Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder.
The gospel-infused track reminiscent of some of the band’s classic hits such as ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ and ‘Shine A Light’ sees Wonder take over on a Fender Rhodes, Moog and piano while Lady Gaga provides backing vocals. While appearing on Zane Lowe‘s Apple Music 1 show to discuss the song, Mick Jagger shared: “It’s all played live. And of course, we did overdubs, but it’s all played in the room. Yeah, there’s that moment, especially in that session where we had Stevie, and you’re feeling your way out a little bit and then you do that soul ending, which is you do sometimes on stage where you stop and you start.”
The Stones frontman also spoke about working with Gaga. “She’s a really great singer and I’d never heard her sing quite that style before. Not exactly. We did it live in the room and that was a great experience, her just coming in the room and her just opening up and seeing her bits and feeling her way and then getting more confident.”
‘Sweet Sounds Of Heaven’ is the second track to be release from the Stones’ forthcoming LP ‘Hackney Diamonds‘. It follows the lead single ‘Angry‘ which came with a music video starring Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney.
