“I just finished off doing all the outtakes for the Some Girls album we’re releasing at Thanksgiving,” [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mick Jagger[/lastfm] told Spinner. “We did Exile, we did a lot of different takes, a lot of different cuts that hadn’t come out before, so we’re doing the similar kind of thing with Some Girls, so I’ve just been doing them because a lot of them weren’t complete, so I had to complete them, and then we’re gonna mix those and put them out for Thanksgiving.”
The Rolling Stones released Some Girls on June 9, 1978 and went to number one on the charts. It was the Stones’ first album with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ronnie Wood[/lastfm] as a full-time member, and presented a new, reinvigorated sound. It would reach number one in the US and number three in the UK and give the band their last US number one single with “Miss You.”
