Mustangs of the West Tackle The Rolling Stones’ Classic “As Tears Go By”
Mustangs of the West release new cover of “As Tears Go By“
Here’s what the band had to say:
We decided to put our own modern spin on another classic song “As Tears Go By,” which was originally penned by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and one-time Rolling Stones manager, Andrew Loog Oldham. As the story goes, Keith and Mick had chiefly only performed blues standards up until writing “As Tears Go By,” one of their first original compositions. Surprisingly, before being released by the Rolling Stones, this dreamy ballad first served as the debut hit for 60’s pop star Marianne Faithfull in 1964. We just can’t wait for you to hear our own little twist on this history-making cover. It’s available today to stream on Amazon Music, Spotify, or Apple Music, and you can also download the track via iTunes.
