“It’s sort of metamorphosing into something else” – Keith Richards

Speaking recently, legendary guitarist Keith Richards has revealed that the Stones are also working on new music on top of touring.

“It’ll be interesting to find out the dynamics now that Steve’s in the band”, Richards said.

“It’s sort of metamorphosing into something else. I was working with Mick last week, and Steve, and we came up with some, eight or nine new pieces of material. Which is overwhelming by our standards. Other times, [songwriting is] like a desert”. 

Keith Richards was also asked if making music has become easier or harder.

To which he responded “It’s sort of metamorphosing into something else. I was working with Mick last week, and Steve, and we came up with some, eight or nine new pieces of material. Which is overwhelming by our standards. Other times, [songwriting is] like a desert”. 

Last year, the Rolling Stones had released a 40th anniversary of their 1981 album Tattoo You. The album also featured a previously unheard track “Troubles-A-Comin”.

The band’s last album came out in 2015 Blue & Loansome. The album consists of blues cover songs. Previous to that, the Rolling Stones released A Bigger Bang in 2005.

Frontman Mick Jagger had previously said that a new Stones album was in the works back in 2020.

“It sounds good, what we’ve already done”, he said at the time, adding that the band had recorded a “bunch of tracks”.
