The Clapton version will be included in band’s upcoming reissue of their ‘Sticky Fingers’ album.
The Rolling Stones have shared a previously unheard version of classic track ‘Brown Sugar’, featuring Eric Clapton on guitar. The alternate take was made public just days before it appears on the reissue of the band’s 1971 album Sticky Fingers, which hits on June 8th.
The Rolling Stones are reissuing Sticky Fingers later this month.
The version was said to have been recorded during a birthday party for Keith Richards and saxophone player Bobby Keys and has been cleaned up for the reissue. The cut also features Al Kooper on piano in place of Ian Stewart, whose version appears on Sticky Fingers.
The reissue of Sticky Fingers will also feature an extended rendition of track 'Bitch’, an acoustic version of ‘Wild Horses’ and alternate cuts of ‘Dead Flowers’ and ‘Can't You Hear Me Knocking’, along with five tracks recorded live at London's Roundhouse in 1971.
The ‘super deluxe box set’ reissue also includes live album Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out recorded at Leeds University in 1971 and a DVD featuring two songs ‘Midnight Rambler’ and ‘Bitch’ from a concert at the Marquee that same year. Fans will also enjoy a 120-page limited edition book, which tells the story of the making of the album and shows previously unpublished photographs of the band. The remastered Sticky Fingers will also be released on limited edition vinyl.
Last month the Stones played the album in its entirety during a surprise concert at Los Angeles’ Fonda theatre. The band are now currently in the middle of their 'Zip Code' tour across North America, which sees them touring in the States for the first time in nine years.
