The beloved rock band shocked more than a few people when they dropped "Living in a Ghost Town," on April 23, as reported by USA Today.

The virtual concert, which raised funds for COVID-19 relief, saw Mick, Keith, Ronnie, and Charlie partaking in the performing from their respective homes.

Through the lyrics, The Rolling Stones express how many people must be feeling amid the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.

While "Ghost Town," which marks the band's first original song since 2012, echoes the current situation of things, it was originally intended for release as part of a forthcoming album.

According to Fox News, the band decided that it felt more appropriate to release the song, which was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, at this time as everyone is stuck inside, thus making the streets in some parts of the world look like a ghost town.

The news outlet added that the track, which was recorded remotely from both Los Angeles and London, features Mick on vocals, Keith on guitar and backing vocals.

Meanwhile, Charlie Watts took hold of the drums, Ronnie Wood was on the guitar and backing vocals, Darryl Jones handled the bass, and Matt Clifford played the keyboards, french horn, sax, and the flugelhorn.

The song's release comes just weeks after Rolling Stone revealed that the rock band performed a social-distancing rendition of their hit single "You Can't Always Get What You Want" during Global Citizen's "One World: Together at Home" special.

The show was kicked off by Mick playing an acoustic guitar before the other members of the band joined in on the extended version of the "Let It Bleed" classic.

The "Together at Home Special" — hosted by late-night TV's Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel — also saw performances from Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Usher, and Celine Dion.
