Mick Jagger is in a new supergroup simply called SuperHeavy which features Joss Stone and Damian Marley. I didn’t expect to listen to it past the 10 second mark (well actually the song doesn’t even start till the 51 second mark, so I was forced regardless) but it’s actually pretty good. I’m a sucker for reggae though so maybe that’s how they tricked me.
Jagger’s part actually makes the least sense and seems out of place, but oh well, he’s stamped his name on it, he might as well scream his signature monkey howl in his pink panther suit.
Band members also include Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and A.R. Rahman. (Slumdog Millionaire score)
Their debut CD, which according to Jagger will feature a variety of different styles ranging “from reggae to ballads to Indian,” will be released on September 20, 2011.
