New Rolling Stone’s Album Announced!
Music Mix Daily Staff
It seems that the Rolling Stones have gone back to the drawing board for the first time since the release of A Bigger Bang in 2005. In fact, it will be the band’s first new music at all in the past 10 years, except for two songs, “Doom and Gloom“ and “One More Shot,” which were added to a compilation of hits called GRR!Richards back in 2012.
It turns out it wasn’t easy for Richards to get all the band members on board for the new album. He even said, “I know what the guys [Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, and Charlie Watts] are like. When they finish a tour, they don’t want to do nothing!” Still, when asked if the band is eventually just going to stop, to call it quits, Richards pointedly said “Never. They [the band members] just hibernate.”
We already knew that front man Mick Jagger was interested in a new Stones album, when he shared earlier this year that he had plenty of songs “I would love to record.” Now, it seems that Keith managed to persuade the group – he told reporters that the group will first get together for a tour of South America in early 2016, and then spend the rest of their time in the studio working on new material. (We can’t help but wonder if there will be some South American influences to their sound!)
Still, exact dates have yet to be flushed out. Richards continued in his joking, jovial mood to share that “They all have to want to do it at the same time. That’s the thing with guys: You can’t drag ‘em in at gunpoint.” But he is totally sure that the album will happen.
