Lost Mick Jagger
solo tracks, including a forgotten collaboration with John Lennon
, have been unearthed for an upcoming best of. The Very Best Of Mick Jagger
will feature essential tracks from the rocker's four solo albums, as well as soundtrack recordings and three previously unreleased tunes.
The 17-track collection includes his Memo From Turner
collaboration with Ry Cooder
that featured on the Performance film soundtrack in 1970 and Golden Globe-winning tune Old Habits Die Hard
, which appeared on 2004's Alfie
The compilation also features Jagger's collaborations with Lenny Kravitz
and reggae great Peter Tosh
and his Live Aid duet with David Bowie
, Dancing In The Street
But the highlight of the album is Jagger's 1973 collaboration with John Lennon, Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup)
, which was never released. The track, which Lennon produced, features Jack Bruce on bass and Harry Nilsson
as a backing singer.
The album's two additional previously unreleased tracks are demos from Jagger's Wandering Spirit
sessions with producer Rick Rubin, including the tune Charmed Life
, which features the Rolling Stone
's daughter Karis on backing vocals.
Jagger admits he's thrilled with the best of, which will hit stores in October: "It's a great thing to listen to since all the songs speak to a certain time and make things come alive for me."
