Legendary rock band The Rolling Stones announced in early September that they will release a brand new album “Hackney Diamonds”, their first new effort of original material in 18 years, on October 20 via Geffen. Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards shared the surprise at a global press conference, where the LP’s first single “Angry” was premiered.
The British icons continue today with new music. The newly released “Sweet Sounds Of Heaven” features Lady Gaga on vocals and Stevie Wonder on keyboards.
“Hackney Diamonds“, set to be released in three weeks, features 12 tracks and was produced by Grammy award-winning American producer Andrew Wyatt (Post Malone, Iggy Pop, Elton John). It has been recorded at various locations around the world, including Henson Recording in Los Angeles, Metropolis Studios in London, Sanctuary Studios in the Bahamas and Electric Lady Studios in New York.
The Rolling Stones show no signs of slowing down and continue to play and tour the world, captivating old and new fans. Jagger has already reached the age of 80, with Keith and Ronnie soon to follow. The band toured Europe in the summer of 2022 to celebrate their 60th anniversary. Long-time drummer Charlie Watts passed away in August 2021 aged 80.
