About Dirty Work

Dirty Work is the 18th studio album by the iconic rock band The Rolling Stones, released in 1986. The album marked a transitional phase for the band as they navigated personal and professional challenges. The departure of Mick Jagger’s longtime partner Keith Richards, coupled with tensions within the group, influenced the album’s raw and edgy sound. Despite the challenges, the album showcases the Stones’ ability to craft memorable rock tracks like “Harlem Shuffle” and “One Hit (to the Body).” While not as universally acclaimed as some of their earlier work, Dirty Work still managed to capture the band’s signature charisma and musical prowess. The album is a reminder of The Rolling Stones’ enduring influence on rock music and their ability to adapt to changing times while maintaining their distinct style.
