Fans of the evergreen rock band will be happy to hear that The Doors released a first new track in 40 years, says Time Magazine. The single was expected as spokespersons announced last year that a new album featuring unknown songs of the band will be released in 2012.
The new track is called “She Smells So Nice” and it features vocals by the late Jim Morrison. Based on the declarations of the spokespersons, the single was discovered while co-producer Bruce Botnic was reviewing the album’s original session tapes in order to create a remastering project.
Thanks to the researches he has made, Botnic managed to find a series of never-heard-before singles interpreted by The Doors and thus, he created the album that will be released this year. The album will be entitled “L.A. Woman” in case you are interested in purchasing it once it will be available on the market.
“She Smells So Nice” was released on the 40th anniversary of the 1971 original “L.A. Woman” album. Fans of the band have stated that Jim Morrison’s vocals haven’t been well captured. Some have even suggested that the single was not included in the original album because the voice of the late singer sounds muffled and a bit abrasive. Even so, producers think the single will be well-received among the public because people are glad to hear Jim Morrison’s voice again.
If you didn’t have the chance to hear the song so far, it is available on The Doors’ Facebook page, as well as other online video channels. The organizers provide lots of information on the social network page in relation to the future releases. The next release is programmed on January 20 when there will also be a one-time screening of ‘Mr. Mojo Risin’: The Story of L.A. Woman’ at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
The remastered album will be put on the market on January 24 and will include eight alternative versions of well-known songs like “Love Her Madly” and “Riders of the Storm”. “L.A. Woman” is the last album that “The Doors” created with Jim Morrison. After its completion, the frontman moved to Paris and passed away several months after its release.
