Musical palate cleanser, “new-ish” edition

The boys are back.

The Rolling Stones are back with a brand new-ish song.

On Thursday, the band unveiled the rollicking “Criss Cross.” The song is one of three unheard tracks featured on the group’s upcoming reissue of 1973 album “Goats Head Soup,” out Sept. 4.

The remastered “Goats Head Soup” box set and deluxe editions will all feature 10 bonus tracks, including “Criss Cross,” the previously unheard “Scarlet,” featuring guitar by Jimmy Page, and a third newly unearthed song, “All The Rage.” All three songs were recorded more than 40 years ago, but were never officially released until now.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say “Criss Cross” is unheard.  It’s been on numerous boots available for years.  But officially, anyway, it’s new material.
