EXILE press release says ten new tracks

This is the official EXILE press release from UNIVERSAL MUSIC

THE ROLLING STONES’ ICONIC
EXILE ON MAIN STREET
TO BE RELEASED
WITH NEVER-BEFORE-HEARD TRACKS

Album Launch to Coincide With New Documentary “Stones In Exile”
New York - February 25, 2010 – Universal Music Group is pleased to announce the re-release of The Rolling Stones’ album Exile on Main Street with an additional 10 never-before-heard tracks. Regarded as one of the greatest albums in rock ‘n’ roll history and one of the most defining of the Stones’ catalogue, Exile will be available May 17, 2010, in the U.K. and May 18, 2010, in the US.
Upon its release more than three decades ago, Exile on Main Street innovatively wove varying musical genres, instruments and even artists into a compelling rhythmic masterpiece. This new compilation features 10 tracks originally recorded during the Exile era and only recently discovered while working on the reissue project. The unearthed tracks which include such titles as “Plundered My Soul,” “Dancing in the Light,” “Following the River” and “Pass The Wine” have undergone a unique evolution, while staying true to the essence of the 1972 album. Alternate versions of “Soul Survivor” and “Loving Cup” also are a part of the Exile bonus materials.

As a complement to the release of Exile on Main Street, a documentary, “Stones in Exile,” has just been completed for fans to view on US Network television and through BBC Worldwide internationally. The documentary features rare, never-before-seen archival film, photos and interviews as well as new conversations with the band and the artists they influence. Produced by Oscar -winning filmmaker John Battsek and directed by Stephen Kijak, who is known for award-winning work on Cinemania, and Scott Walker: 30 Century Man, “Stones in Exile” offers an uncommon glimpse into the lives of the band as they created one of the greatest albums of all time.

The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic Studios in London, Keith Richard’s mansion Nellcote in France, and in Los Angeles where the literal “Main Street” influenced the album title. These atypical circumstances surrounding the recording process greatly affected the album’s outcome which was highly reflective and influenced by the sociopolitical turbulence that marked the late `60s and early `70s. The Stones nixed the influences of a flower-child era and directed their creative process with the edgier, excessive, “more is more” approach of the `70s. Exile reveals a sprawling mix of genres with undertones of blues, country, R&B and gospel mixed with lyrics that fervently demand for release and liberation.

The album pulled together an electric array of talent including Dr. John, the late Billy Preston and pianist Nicky Hopkins. Guitarist Mick Taylor, who replaced Brian Jones in the band shortly before Jones died in 1969, is a magnificent blues player who brought an intensity and elegance to these epic tracks. At times, these musicians and others lived on the recording studio premises with the band creating an extremely open and creative collaboration for the album.

“The album’s riveting portrait of artists pushed – by the times, by themselves – to the very limits of their creativity has provided inspiration to every musical generation that has come along since Exile was released in 1972,” said author Anthony DeCurtis. “Every song on Exile on Main Street is elevated by its relationship to the music that comes before and after it. The album’s irresistible power is unlikely to diminish any time soon.”
Exile on Main Street will be available in two CD formats: the original 18 track release; a deluxe CD edition with the 10 special bonus tracks; and a super deluxe package that also includes vinyl, a 30-minute documentary DVD with footage from @#$%& Blues, Ladies and Gentlemen… the Rolling Stones and Stones in Exile, and a 50-page collector’s book with photos from the Exile era. The 10 unreleased tracks were produced by Jimmy Miller, The Glimmer Twins and Don Was.

The Rolling Stones’ classic Exile in Main Street — one of Rolling Stone’s highest-ranking Greatest Albums of All Time — is returning as a very special reissue. On May 18th, Universal Music Group is re-releasing the album with 10 never-before-heard tracks, including “Plundered My Soul,” “Dancing in the Light,” “Following the River” and “Pass the Wine,” that were produced by Jimmy Miller, the Glimmer Twins and Don Was. The disc also features alternate versions of “Soul Survivor” and “Loving Cup.”

Mick Jagger tells Rolling Stone when the record company asked him to dive in his files for possible bonus songs, he initially believed the band had used all they’d written on the 1972 double album (read RS’s original review). “I went back in the archives and dug out a load of things,” he says. “I added some percussion and some vocals. Keith put guitar on one or two.” Jagger wrote fresh lyrics for “Following the River,” but other than some light revisions to the other songs, “I really wanted to leave them pretty much as they were,” Keith Richards says. “I didn’t want to interfere with the Bible, you know. They still had that great basement sound.”

The intimate Rolling Stones: photos from the band’s 1969 tour.

A deluxe edition of the reissue will also include Stones in Exile, a documentary directed by Stephen Kijak that tracks the making of Exile, along with footage from @#$%& Blues and Ladies and Gentlemen… the Rolling Stones. After seeing the Exile film for the first time recently, Richards says, “I must not have noticed all the cameramen while I was making the record. I was amazed at how much footage they actually found.”

The Exile on Main Street reissue will be sold a CD featuring the original 18 tracks or as a deluxe CD edition with the 10 bonus tracks. The super deluxe package includes vinyl, the 30-minute documentary DVD and a 50-page collector’s book with photos from the Exile era.

Maybe this will count towards releasing a new album. 10 new tracks coming from that era will be a welcome release.

Its about time, and a much better prospect rather than opening coffins and crypts.

This sounds very promising, especially the alt "Soul Survivor". I've never seen that myself on bootleg.

Of the details about DVD hold true - and I don't see reason why not - the final result will be quite coherent EXILE release. They used CS Blues and LADYS&GENTS barely as some base material for a 30-minute documentary with some scenes of actually making the album (the latter does sound interesting!! I never seen footage of actual making of the album.) But 30-minute is s a bit less I hoped...sad smiley

Sorry, but they seem to have run out of ideas. Releasing unreleased songs is nice if the songs are good, but spending time in the studio with "adding a bit of percussion and vocals" to fourty year old recordings is very strange.I hope they will not end up beeing nothing but a nostalgia band! Dear Mick, in 2001 you sang that you always hated nostalgia, living in the past, did you forget that?

Overdubs 38 or 39 years after the original recordings. Maybe Bill and Mick Taylor parts will not be erased ?

'“I added some percussion and some vocals. Keith put guitar on one or two.” Jagger wrote fresh lyrics for “Following the River,”'

Hmmmm. Well, I'll judge it after listening to it.

To be honest, adding new lyrics (= a whole new vocal delivery that is to say) and stuff like that sounds a bit frightening but I will wait (and resist the judgment) until I hear the results... Keith's point of the Bible sounds comfortable, but Keith's sayings have been way too metaphorical - and full of bull shit - for so long that I don't really know...

Until 1999 the Stones were not about nostalgia only, they released successful albums who got airplay, played new songs and so on. It changed in 2002, but ABB was decent. This Exile article shows a new quality of nostalgia.

Music is music and i don't care if it was made today or 100 years ago...As long as its good. And 1969 to 1973 were great years for the rolling stones and their music. No one was better then they were back then so i think the new 10 tracks will really rock...And yes they will be new 10 songs as we have never heard them....
I be very up set if it was just 10 released songs with different versions! We are getting 10 NEW SONGS!

No. Not "10 NEW SONGS!". "10 never-before-heard tracks".

Big difference. If you're simply saying songs we've never heard before or if you are counting the alternate versions of songs we've heard before as part of the ten new songs.

True, but we are not the only ones enjoying the material. A Majority of people do not even realize bootlegs exist to the extent we all do let alone alternate versions.

I don't see that anything to do with nostalgia. It is more like recognizing finally the historical value of their past, and trying to treat it in terms of its own. Finally. Something Bob Dylan with his great bootleg series has been doing for ages. Making new albums or tours is altogether another project. As Dylan had shown also this can be with a great success without any drive for nostalgy.

I think finally opening the vaults it is a sign that the Stones are finally are coming to terms with their own legacy and stop the self-deception.

Yeah. It's easy to forget that part, the bootleg part. The way some people talk around here, it's NORMAL to have 28 versions of something.

“I really wanted to leave them pretty much as they were,” Keith Richards says. “I didn’t want to interfere with the Bible".

uh, i guess he failed in that regard, considering he did overdub some guitar parts and mick overdubbed things. way to interfere with the bible, keith! gosh!

They find a way to ruin some good songs live in the last 30 years, in the studio, things are much controlled and static. Many ears and engineers to fix any issues. Besides, it is an "alternate" release, so the originals are still there.

What do you suppose the vinyl package will be priced at? Any guesses?
