The Rolling Stones today announced the release of a brand-new best-of compilation album, Honk. Featuring the biggest hits and classic cuts from every Rolling Stones studio album from 1971 to 2016’s Blue & Lonesome, Honk is out on April 19.

Released via Polydor/Interscope in North America, the Deluxe 3-CD, Deluxe 4-LP and digital equivalent collect 36 tracks, including eight top 10 singles,:“Brown Sugar,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Angie,” “It’s Only Rock ’n’ Roll (But I Like It),” “Fool To Cry,” “Miss You,” “Emotional Rescue” and “Start Me Up.” Also available will be a 1-CD and 2-LP edition featuring 20 Stones hits. Bringing the band’s story up to date, Honk also contains hit single “Doom & Gloom,”  recorded in 2012, as well as “Just Your Fool,” “Ride ’Em on Down” and “Hate to See You Go” from the band’s 2016’s album, Blue & Lonesome.

The bonus disc of the Deluxe 3-CD edition includes 10 live tracks recorded at stadiums round the world during the band’s more recent sold-out tours. These include “Dead Flowers,” with Americana star Brad Paisley, recorded in Philadelphia in June 2013 and “Bitch” with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, both during the 50 And Counting tour, as well as a version of “Wild Horses,” featuring Florence Welch, from the band’s show in London in May 2018 during last year’s leg of the No Filter tour.

A Deluxe 4-LP colored vinyl will also be released as a special fan edition, featuring the 36 studio tracks and the bonus 10 live tracks. This heavyweight vinyl set will come housed in a special slip box. It is available exclusively via RollingStones.com.

A limited tour edition of the 2-LP will be available on red vinyl exclusively at the band’s upcoming American concerts.

Two digital editions will also be available in the North America: one featuring the Deluxe track listing (36 tracks + 10 bonus live tracks) available at all streaming and download services, the second featuring the 20-track edition at download services only.

Honk features “Happy” (Exile on Main Street, 1972), “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)” (Goats Head Soup, 1973) and “Beast Of Burden” (Some Girls, 1978) alongside later singles like “Waiting on a Friend” (Tattoo You, 1981), “Undercover (of the Night” (Undercover, 1983), “Harlem Shuffle” (Dirty Work, 1986), “Rock and a Hard Place” (Steel Wheels, 1989), “Love Is Strong” (Voodoo Lounge, 1994), “Out of Control” (Bridges To Babylon, 1997), “Rough Justice” (A Bigger Bang, 2005) and “Just Your Fool” (Blue & Lonesome, 2016).

Honk also highlights classic Stones album cuts—“Bitch” (Sticky Fingers, 1971), “Rocks Off” (Exile On Main Street, 1972) “Dancing With Mr. D” (Goats Head Soup, 1973) and “Respectable” (Some Girls, 1978)—as well as stand-alone tracks such as “Don’t Stop” (Forty Licks, 2002) and “One More Shot” (GRRR!).

The Rolling Stones today

The 10 live tracks are similarly wide-ranging, drawn from three of the band’s most recent tours, the 50 And Counting Tour, the Zip Code Tour and the No Filter Tour. On Honk, “Get Off My Cloud,” “Let’s Spend the Night Together” and “Under My Thumb” (recorded in Cardiff, Manchester and London, respectively, during the 2018 No Filter tour) represent the band’s early-mid ’60s years; while the version of “She’s a Rainbow” from Paris, 2017, provides a relatively rare outing of this classic piece of psychedelic Stones from Their Satanic Majesties Request. The appearance of “Dancing With Mr. D”, meanwhile, recorded in Arnhem, 2017, marks the song’s return to the band’s set lists for the first time in 44 years.

The Rolling Stones will be touring the U.S. with their ‘No Filter’ tour, starting April 20, and are currently recording tracks for their next studio album.

    Who the hell needs another best of Stones songs mix again, sheesh, they got lucky with lazy with the release of Blue and Lonesome, which was practice time songs for them, while trying to make a NEW album, new songs. I like it, but they are stalling on a new Stones album. Sheeesh, now we get another batch of reruns, and still no new album. Thanks alot, Mick, Keith for a new rerun release, and more stalling on new songs. You guys are legends, and you can’t write some new songs. I’ll pass on the new retread album. Rather buy an old album of theirs, than this pile of reruns…lazy bastards, just tour, and rip people off with high ticket prices, and below average stage performance. You ain’t what you once were, not worth the money, or waste of time seeing in concert, never were really that good live, like Zepp, Humble Pie, Deep Purple, Queen, and many more, so stick it up your arse. Then to top it off, NO MICK TAYLOR. This is a no brainer, boring show. You don’t rock to the level you once did, get over yourselves, its time to hang up the guitars and mikes, drums, and no Bill Wyman, hang up the Bass too…..leif
