The Rolling Stones' 1972 double album, Exile On Main Street, will be reissued later this year in expanded format.
The new edition will feature 10 unearthed tracks. Titles are set to include Plundered My Soul, Dancing in the Light, Following the River and Pass The Wine. All were recorded during the album sessions at London's Olympic Studios and the band's debauched south of France mansion, Villa Nellcôte. Alternative versions of Soul Survivor and Loving Cup will also appear on the set.
To coincide with the release, a new documentary, Stones in Exile, is also being lined up for broadcast. Featuring unseen archival footage, photos and interviews, as well as new conversations with the band, the film is set to chart the making of the LP. Stones In Exile will premiere on US Network television and BBC Worldwide.
On its release in 1972, Exile... was lambasted for its loose, ragged feel. It has since been recognised as the Stones' greatest triumph; a breathtaking blitz of R&B, rock'n'roll and soulful, southern grooves played by the band and glittering array of guests (Dr John, Gram Parsons and Billy Preston among them) all fuelled by a super-strength cocktail of chemicals.
Exile on Main Street will be available in three formats: the original 18-track LP; a deluxe CD edition with the 10 bonus tracks and a super deluxe package that will also include a vinyl version, a 30-minute documentary DVD and a 50-page collector's photo book.
These new editions will will be released on May 17 in the UK and May 18 in the US.
