Universal Music Group is pleased to announce the re-release of The Rolling Stones’ album Exile On Main Street. Upon its release more than three decades ago, Exile On Main Street innovatively wove varying musical genres, instruments and even artists into a compelling rhythmic masterpiece.
The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic Studios in London, Keith Richards’ mansion Nellcote in France and in Los Angeles where the literal “Main Street” influenced the album title. These atypical circumstances surrounding the recording process greatly affected the album’s outcome which was highly reflective and influenced by the sociopolitical turbulence that marked the late ’60s and early ’70s. The Stones nixed the influences of a flower-child era and directed their creative process with edgier, excessive, “more is more” approach of the ’70s. Exile reveals a sprawling mix of genres with undertones of blues, country, R&B and gospel mixed with lyrics that fervently demand for release and liberation
