From Songfacts:
The Rolling Stones recorded this sing-along rocker in Paris along with “Doom and Gloom” for their hits collection GRRR!. Keith Richards recorded the original demo of this song in New York in 2011. “I had a feeling about it,” the guitarist told Q magazine. “I thought, if we get the Stones back in the studio, this is made for Mick. He and I have a very tight partnership. One that’s had to survive several knocks, but that strengthens the bond, in a way.”

Richards said in November 2012: “It was probably the quickest Rolling Stones recording session I can remember, ever. We cut two tracks in three days. It was incredibly professional. I had ‘One More Shot’ ready, Mick had ‘Doom and Gloom’ ready to go, so, boom, let’s cut ’em.”

The session also made an impression on Don Was. He praised the song in a 2012 interview: “It’s got all this f—ing power. Everyone was smiling. You can recognize it’s the Rolling Stones from a mile away.”

From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
Keith Richards recorded a demo of “One More Shot” in New York City in
2011, not with a future solo number in mind, but in hopes of including it in
the program of future reunions with Mick, Charlie, and Ronnie. He told Q
magazine: “I thought, if we get the Stones back in the studio, this is made
for Mick. He and I have a very tight partnership. One that’s had to survive
several knocks, but that strengthens the bond, in a way.”
Give me one more shot/Baby it’s all I got: an ex-lover is ready to do
whatever it takes to win back the woman he loves. There is no particular
subliminal message in “One More Shot” other than the one the Glimmer
Twins had been conveying since the sixties: that rock ’n’ roll and the Stones
are one and the same. “One More Shot” is a typical Keith Richards riff in
the tradition of “Street Fighting Man” (while the melody is akin to that of
“Mixed Emotions”)
