An announcement on the Stones' official website explains the new material was recorded during the long gestation period of 'Exile...', beginning in1968. New songs include 'Plundered My Soul,' 'Dancing in the Light,' 'Following the River' and 'Pass The Wine,' while the package also includes alternate versions of album tracks 'Soul Survivor' and 'Loving Cup.' Mick Jagger told Rolling Stone magazine that he unearthed the tracks for the reissue at the record company's request, then the singer and Keith Richards tweaked them slightly.
Accompanying the release of 'Exile...' is a new documentary, 'Stones in Exile,' to be shown on network television in the US and through BBC Worldwide internationally.
Produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker John Battsek and directed by Stephen Kijak, the documentary features never-before-seen archival film, photos and interviews, as well as conversations with the band and artists they have influenced. Richards said of the early footage, "I must not have noticed all the cameramen while I was making the record. I was amazed at how much footage they actually found."
The 'Exile...' reissue will be available on May 17 in the UK and May 18 in the US in three versions, as a CD with the original 18 tracks; as a deluxe CD edition with the bonus tracks; and in a super deluxe package including vinyl, documentary DVD and a collector's book.
