New Rolling Stones Album Confirmed by Keith Richards
Tuesday night, iHeart Radio was informed by Keith Richards that a recent group meeting had been conducted by the Rolling Stones in London and had made some concrete plans for recording a new album. The guitarist of the band gave a new interview in which he elaborated those plans. He said that a new album was looking closer than ever and they just had to decide the when and where. A spokesperson for the group wasn’t available for comment immediately.
The timing of the recording remains undecided at the moment. Richards said that it was probably going to be in February after the South American tour. He added that they would try to get into the studio in December before Christmas, but it wasn’t confirmed. An album containing new material haven’t been released by The Rolling Stones since A Bigger Bang, which was released in 2005. Mick Jagger, the band’s frontman had told Rolling Stone earlier this year that he wasn’t sure about a new album of the band.
He had asserted that a number of new songs had been written and they had also done demo. Jagger said that they would love to record, but nothing was certain. In 2012, after taking a break for 5 years, the band had reconvened for a 50th Anniversary tour. New tracks ‘One More Shot’ and ‘Doom and Gloom’ were recorded for the new GRRR! Compilation by the band, but they were dedicated to road work for the better part of their time. In July, they wrapped up their Zip Code tour of 15 shows in Quebec City.
Currently, Richard is promoting Crosseyed Heart, his upcoming solo album, which is scheduled for a launch on Friday. He hasn’t revealed any definite touring plans although he did say that he would support the album with his first solo tour after 1993.
