Parents hide your children, because The Rolling Stones are still finding new ways to keep their longtime fans happy with (somewhat) new recordings. Their latest album announcement comes in the form of an upcoming live collection of songs recorded for the BBC during the band’s very early years circa 1963-65. The collection, titled On Air and scheduled for a Dec. 1 release, will reportedly feature 18 never before released recordings from various performances the band gave live on shows through the British media network.

Included in the track listing, which can be see in full below, are live performances of some of the band’s biggest pop hits, in addition to the traditional blues and American R&B covers. "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "Route 66" and "The Last Time" all find their way onto the album. Additional tracks included on the album’s deluxe version also includes a cover of The Beatles’ “"I Wanna Be Your Man" and the famous Muddy Waters/Willie Dixon tune, "I Just Want to Make Love To You."

According to the announcement, the 50-year-old recordings have been rebuffed through a process which the band’s rep referred to as, “audio source separation.” The process apparently involved “de-mixing the transcripts and allowing engineers at Abbey Road access to the original instrumentation and voices within each track.”

The arrival of the band’s announcement on Friday coincides with the recent release of a coffee table book by the same name, which will be available to purchase with the new album through a deluxe bundle package.

On Air will be released on both CD and vinyl formats, and is available for pre-order by clicking here.
