The Rolling Stones are recording in New York City. On September 21st, Keith Richards posted a photo of himself recording on a semi-acoustic electric guitar under the caption, “Working on some new music…” The night before (September 20th), the Facebook page “Stoned – Celebrating Everything About The Rolling Stones” posted a shot from September 20th featuring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Richards’ primary solo collaborator and producer, legendary drummer Steve Jordan hanging out in the studio. No word on when the Stones’ new album will be hitting the streets.
Back in 2016, Stones producer Don Was explained that the band has been entering the studio and tracking tunes in less concentrated amounts of time than in the past: “There’s lot of them. Maybe we had three songs — we might’ve been on the third or fourth of them and we took the blues detour in December — but we went back in June and recorded more. And it’s still pretty early. Y’know, in the past, it’s been a year (laughs). We don’t actually toil, y’know, for 12 hours a day for a year, but it’s a lifestyle record. You shape your life around making a record, and really, so far, there hasn’t really been an appetite for that. So, we’ve been doing it in a couple of little bursts.”

Meanwhile, the Rolling Stones have been teasing fans on social media with the artwork their 1994 Voodoo Lounge album along with the pre-recorded music played before they hit the stage from the ’94 tour. Ultimate Classic Rock posted: “Amazon has three listings for something called Voodoo Lounge Uncut — on Blu-ray/two-CD, DVD/two-CD and three-LP sets — available for pre-order all with a release date of November 16th.”
The site added that MusicDirect described the package as being the band’s November 25th, 1994 pay-per-view broadcast concert in Miami Gardens, Florida at the Joe Robbie Stadium. The show, which featured guest spots by Sheryl Crow, Robert Cray, and Bo Diddley, was released in truncated form the following year as the VHS concert Voodoo Lounge Live.
