Heaven: Rolling Stones Release Unheard Track “Trouble’s a Coming” from 1981 Classic “Tattoo You”


There are few better sounds than the Rolling Stones circa 1981. This is “Trouble’s a Coming” from the 40th anniversary of “Tattoo You.” It’s a cover of the Chi-Lites record, made in 1979.

The Chi-Lites were led by Eugene Record (his real name), a genius who wrote the group’s hits like “Have You Seen Her” and “Oh Girl.” Eugene, who I was lucky enough to know, also wrote the song “Are You My Woman” which Jay Z and Beyonce lifted for “Crazy in Love,” her biggest hit. I hope Eugene’s estate gets some dough from the Stones release today.

There are 8 more unreleased tracks coming on the 40th anniversary set October 22nd.

Here’s the original:
