MUMBAI, India -- Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger has sung in Sanskrit on a new album by a super group he formed in Mumbai which stars a number of deceased rock stars who were all reborn in India.
Jagger sings “Arthameva Jayate” (Money Rules), the second single from the super-group called “Super Heavy.”
The super group featuring Mick Jagger as Roy Orbison (who was never located), also features Brian Jones on guitar (reborn as Amar Gupta, a Rickshaw puller in Calcutta), Keith Moon on tablas (reborn as Shantaram Sobha, an indentured eunuch in an obscure Rajasthan village), Metallica's Cliff Burton on bass (reborn as Rajesh Singh, a barley farmer’s son from Punjab), and Eddie Cochran on lead guitar (reborn as Satish Sharma, a Hindu priest who ran away from some temple near Agra).
Arthameva Jayate is the band's second single. The first was named simply, “Chello” or Get Lost. Super Heavy's first album is expected to be released in September. And is rumored to be called, “Mera Dhuni Honey” (My rich baby).
Mick said of Jones, "we want his rhythm playing in this album... we want this to be a great piece of exoteric hedonism – and a commercial song too. A long dream for me to raise one of the principles of Indian culture which is Arthameva Jayate (money rules!) and get richer by making it as a song,” Jagger was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India. “This is historic... it is iconic in a way. I hope people will like it. After all, only India has money to buy music anymore” he said.
Jagger formed the band in May, saying that he wanted a convergence of different dead musicians styles.
“It's different from anything else I've ever been involved in,” Jagger told Rolling Stone magazine. “The music is very wide-ranging - from raga to glam rock to Indian songs in Urdu.”
When the media asked how Jagger managed to track down and locate all the reborn players, he simply smiled and fingered his Sai Baba Mala – whatever that is supposed to mean.
