The legendary group have referenced the coronavirus pandemic on the line: "Life was so beautiful, then we all got locked down."
And frontman Mick hopes the new track - their first since the singles 'Doom and Gloom' and 'One More Shot' from their 2012 best-of compilation 'Grrr!'- will resonate with everyone in these unsettling times.
He said: "Recording some new material before the lockdown and there was one song we thought would resonate through the times that we're living in right now. We've worked on it in isolation. And here it is."
Guitarist Keith added: "We cut this track well over a year ago in LA for a new album, an ongoing thing, and then shit hit the fan.
"Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it."
The band are known to be working on a new album of original tunes - their first since 2005's LP, 'A Bigger Bang' - and bassist-and-guitarist Ronnie recently teased it's shaping up to be "very diverse".
In a video posted on social media, Mick said: “So we were in the studio, the Stones recorded some new material before the lockdown and there was one song I thought would resonate with the times we’re living in which is called Living In A Ghost Town.
“So, hope you like it.”
