"I just finished off doing all the outtakes for the Some Girls album we're releasing at Thanksgiving," frontman Mick Jagger told Spinner. "We did Exile, we did a lot of different takes, a lot of different cuts that hadn't come out before, so we're doing the similar kind of thing with Some Girls, so I've just been doing them because a lot of them weren't complete, so I had to complete them, and then we're gonna mix those and put them out for Thanksgiving."
