On June 21, 2013, the Rolling Stones announced that most of their albums and songs will be available on iTunes in exclusive remastered editions for iTunes.
Here is the announcement from the official Rolling Stones website:
In further celebration of their 50th anniversary, The Rolling Stones are globally announcing a Rolling Stones destination on the iTunes Store, allowing newcomers to the group and long-standing fans alike to purchase all of the bands biggest and best albums, live releases and singles from the past 50 years. All available content has been mastered exclusively for iTunes (iTunes.com/TheRollingStones), ensuring the delivery of the music to listeners with increased audio fidelity, more closely replicating what the artists, recording engineers, and producers intended.
In addition, two Complete Collections chronicling the band’s extraordinary career and covering the 1963-1971 period and the 1971-2013 period are now available, offering incredible value to millions of admirers.
From their introductory cover of Chuck Berry’s Come On to last year’s self-penned releases Doom And Gloom and One More Shot from the new Greatest Hits collection GRRR!, via the irresistible, era-defining, chart-topping singles (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, Jumpin’ Jack Flash and Honky Tonk Women, the Rolling Stones have soundtracked the last 50 years and remain a touchstone of popular culture as well as one of the world’s biggest concert attractions.
The Rolling Stones have sold over 200 million albums worldwide and created a rock’n’roll template that has influenced everyone from Aerosmith to Oasis via Primal Scream, Guns N’ Roses and Jack White. Pioneers of arena and stadium concerts since the late 1960s, they went on to stage hugely successful world tours throughout the next five decades and have been wowing audiences on both sides of the Atlantic on their 50 & Counting Tour. They are due to headline the Glastonbury Festival at the end of the month before returning to London’s Hyde Park for two sell-out open air concerts at the scene of their legendary July 1969 appearance.
