The Rolling Stones are gearing up to release their first album of original material in 18 years

Rumour has it that The Rolling Stones are gearing up to release their first album of original material in 18 years.

The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, Steve Jordan, and Darryl Jones, have reportedly holed up in New York to record the basic tracks of their new album, the band’s first new album of original songs since The Bigger Bang, in 2005. 

The album marks the band’s first without founding drummer Charlie Watts, who passed away at age 80 in 2021 just prior to the band’s 60th-anniversary tour U.S., South America, and Europe.

A source close to The Rolling Stones told The Sun on Monday “I’m told Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood teamed up in New York over the past fortnight for recording sessions, alongside a raft of world-class session musicians to complete the initial recordings for their first output of original material in 18 years.

“After Charlie’s passing there was some uncertainty about what to do next. They had stadium dates scheduled so pressed ahead, but afterward it wasn’t clear what the future looked like. But now they’ve had time to reflect; they all feel it’s the right thing to keep doing what they’ve always done as a band, make new music, and hopefully hit the road again to perform it to their fans.”
