Keith Richards Projects New Rolling Stones Album For Fall 2019

Music News

Keith Richards says that the Rolling Stones’ first original album in nearly 15 years should be ready this time next year. Richards, who’ll be back on the road with the Stones next spring for the band’s North American “No Filter” tour, spoke with Rolling Stone and revealed how the ongoing sessions for the new album are coming, explaining, “Mick (Jagger) and I got together for a few days a month or so ago in the studio, just playing around. Apart from that, there might be a session sometime in December, but I’m not crossing my fingers on that. . . It was great, man. We knocked out a few songs together with (producer) Don Was. We’re just working things through. We had a great time — got some nice stuff out of it.”

When asked if there was a release date for the album, Richards said, “Oh man, no. Like I say, early stages. I would say if I’m looking at it, we’re going to do this tour, so maybe this time next year, I would say. Maybe. That looks like a reasonable projection.”

Keith Richards told us that for the Stones’ last studio album, 2005’s A Bigger Bang, writing the songs nose-to-nose with Mick Jagger made a substantial difference in the quality of the material: “Those songs have always been there. They pass through our whole career. Certainly to me, and I think to Mick, too, that the closer we work the better it gets. And we’d gotten so used to, after Exile (On Main Street), of having to get used to writing songs 3,000 miles apart that we sorta figured that was the modus operandi from now on. But this one once again proved us wrong. We don’t know everything, man!”
