After the expansive reissue of their seminal Sticky Fingers, it seemed likely that the Rolling Stones would gear up to release a brand new record. Keith Richards even hinted as much in a recent Rolling Stone interview.
But Richards made it official in an interview with iHeartRadio, saying: “Oddly enough, just met with the boys and there will be a new album.”
Richards is currently doing press for his own solo album Crosseyed Heart and a Netflix documentary about his life called Under The Influence. If the new Rolling Stones album does emerge, it’ll be their first since 2005’s A Bigger Bang.
