Primitive Cool followed just two years later, recorded in the Netherlands and Barbados and again co-produced by the star, this time with Keith Diamond and David A. Stewart. ‘Let’s Work’ was the prominent single on an album that also included ‘Party Doll,’ covered by Mary Chapin Carpenter on her 1999 collection Party Doll And Other Favourites.
In 1993, Jagger released Wandering Spirit, co-produced with Rick Rubin. Tracks included the rocking ‘Wired All Night’ and the funk-driven hit single ‘Sweet Thing.’ It also included a cover of Bill Withers’ ‘Use Me,’ with guest vocals by Lenny Kravitz, and the gold-certified album sported further contributions from Flea, Courtney Pine, Benmont Tench and Billy Preston.
