The Rolling Stones have announced that their first new single in 7 years, titled "Doom And Gloom", will be released on Thursday. According to NME, the song will receive its first airplay on BBC Radio 2 at 8.15 pm GMT and will then be made available to download.

The song is one of two new tracks that the band recorded in Paris with producer Don Was. The track will be available on the band's latest greatest hits compilation, "GRRR", along with a song titled "One More Shot".

Keith Richards has hinted that the band will be playing shows in London and New York in the recent future, a statement which Bobby Keys, the band's long time saxophonist corroborated in a recent interview:

"[The Rolling Stones are] gonna do some more concerts, starting in November with two in England and then a couple here in the States, then there's a few added concerts after that. Keith told me a couple months ago there was something in the wind and just be ready to go. I'm waiting for them to send me the plane ticket and the information, and then I'll go."

Keys also noted that the latest round of shows could mark the beginning of the end for the Rolling Stones:

"The reality is this train is going to pull into the last station pretty soon - I don't know how soon. I've been saying this since 1980!... But I feel like it's kind of winding down. This may be sort of the 'Sayonara, see you later, had a good time, keep in touch.' I don't know that for sure. I haven't officially been told anything...I just take my cue primarily from what Keith says, so we'll have to see."

    Damn, now this should be the top story!
    i just want to be cool like them in that age..... either that or whole retirement home will laugh at me
    "....could mark the beginning of the end for the Rolling Stones." Man like we haven't heard that one before.
    HELL YEAH! hope they visit sweden some more time in the future. I would like to see them once before they quit officially...
    No offence to Don, but I was hoping that they went with Jack White on this one. Still interested in checking out the new tune though.
    Lost all that treasure in an overseas war, just goes to show you don't get what you paid for! I happen to love the lyrics, Jagger gave them a good punch that lots of modern rock bands miss, regardless of lyric quality.
