Press Release


Featuring the biggest hits and classic cuts from every Rolling Stones studio album from 1971 to 2016's Blue & Lonesome, Honk will collect 36 essential Stones' tracks including eight Top 10 singles - Brown Sugar, Tumbling Dice, Angie, It's Only Rock'n'Roll (But I Like It), Fool To Cry, Miss You, Emotional Rescue and Start Me Up - on the Deluxe 3CD, Deluxe 4LP and digital equivalent versions. Also available will be a 1CD and 2LP edition featuring 20 Stones' hits. Bringing the band's story up to date, Honk also contains hit single Doom & Gloom – recorded in 2012 – as well as Just Your Fool, Ride 'Em On Down and Hate To See You Go from the band's 2016's Grammy Award-winning, No 1 album, Blue & Lonesome.

Taken from the band's imperial phase, Honk features Happy (Exile On Main Street, 1972), Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker) (Goats Head Soup, 1973) and Beast Of Burden (Some Girls, 1978) alongside later singles like Waiting On A Friend (Tattoo You, 1981), Undercover (Of The Night (Undercover, 1983), Harlem Shuffle (Dirty Work, 1986), Rock And A Hard Place (Steel Wheels, 1989), Love Is Strong (Voodoo Lounge, 1994), Out Of Control (Bridges To Babylon, 1997), Rough Justice (A Bigger Bang, 2005) and Just Your Fool (Blue & Lonesome, 2016).

Honk also highlights classic Stones' album cuts – Bitch (Sticky Fingers, 1971), Rocks Off (Exile On Main Street, 1972) Dancing With Mr. D (Goats Head Soup, 1973) and Respectable (Some Girls, 1978) – as well as stand-alone tracks such as Don't Stop (Forty Licks, 2002) and One More Shot (GRRR!).

The bonus disc of the Deluxe 3CD edition includes 10 live tracks recorded at packed-out stadiums round the world during the band's more recent sold-out tours. Get Off My Cloud, Let's Spend The Night Together and Under My Thumb (recorded in Cardiff, Manchester and London, respectively, during the 2018 No Filter tour) ably represent the band's groundbreaking early-mid '60s years; while the version of She's A Rainbow from Paris, 2017, provides a relatively rare outing of this classic piece of psychedelic Stones. The appearance of Dancing With Mr. D, meanwhile, recorded in Arnhem, 2017, marks the song's acclaimed return to the band's set lists for the first time in 44 years. Notable collaborations among the live performances are Dead Flowers, with Americana star Brad Paisley, recorded in Philadelphia in June 2013 and Bitch with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, both during the 50 And Counting tour as well as an electrifying version of Wild Horses, featuring Florence Welch, from the band's show in London in May 2018 during last year's leg of the No Filter tour. 




A Deluxe 4LP coloured vinyl will also be released as a special fan edition, featuring the 36 studio tracks and the bonus 10 live tracks. This heavyweight vinyl set will come housed in a special slip box. It is available exclusively via RollingStones.com
