- Concept part of Spotify sponsorship agreement
- Promotes Rolling Stones' new album
- Drake and Rosalia featured during last term's Clasicos
WHAT HAPPENED? Catalan news outlet RAC1 report that Barca will feature the Stones' famous 'tongue and lips' logo in this season's first Clasico. Barca and Madrid are slated to meet on the last weekend in October, the week after the band releases its 24th studio album, 'Hackney Diamonds'.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The concept is part of the club's shirt and stadium sponsorship deal with Spotify and follows similar promotions during last season's meetings with Real Madrid. Rapper Drake's owl logo featured on the front of the famous Blaugrana in October's Clasico, while singer Rosalia's album 'Motomami' fronted the shirts in the pairs' March clash.
Limited editions of shirts featuring Rosalia's motif sold strongly in the Barcelona club stores. A repeat of that feat with the iconic Stones' 'tongue and lips' design would prove good news for a club in dire need of new streams of income.
