The Rolling Stones appear to be teasing a reissue of their 1981 album Tattoo You, which turns 40 on August 24.

The band’s social media channels shared a tattoo flash sheet featuring tattoo designs representing the tracks on Tattoo You. The graphic also features copy that reads, “‘Tattoo You’ 2021 Flash Sale. August 19th, 2 PM BST/9 AM EST. Location: The World.”

Tattoo You reissue being in the works is no big secret. Ronnie Wood said in an interview last month, “I saw Mick [Jagger] here [at my new home in London] last week, and Rod [Stewart] and Kenney [Jones] were here yesterday. Me and Mick have done nine new tracks for the [40th anniversary] re-release of ‘Tattoo You.’ And me, Rod and Kenney have been recording some new Faces music.”

Wood would accurately conclude, “I’ve had a front-row seat on some amazing rock ‘n’ roll projects these past couple of weeks. I’m making every day count. Not wasting a moment.”
