The Rolling Stones have unveiled their celebration of the 40th anniversary of Tattoo You, the explosive 1981 album that defined the band’s 1980’s musical presence. Among the new elements available are a 2021 remaster, nine unheard tracks, limited edition clear vinyl, picture discs and immersive box sets. “We realized that there was a lot of great music that we had recorded in the past that had never been released, particularly from all the material we had amassed during the Some Girls and Emotional Rescue sessions,” Ronnie Wood recalled on the band’s website. “The music had to age like fine wine.” Four decades of fine aging later, and the songs are just as resonant as when they were written. The “No Filter” tour, set to conclude in 2020 but postponed due to COVID-19, has continued well into this month. Part of the beating heart of the band is missing, however. Charlie Watts passed away in late August, prompting beautiful tributes from his bandmates and fans all over the world. “Charlie lives on in all our hearts,” the band wrote in a September Instagram post.
