After recently announcing that he will be releasing his new solo LP in September, Keith Richards has now spoke about a new Stones album. Richards will release his new solo album Crosseyed Heart on September 18th.
Speaking to Mojo magazine, Keith Richards spoke about the new album and the possibility of a new record from the Rolling Stones. Richards responded to questioning saying “Will we record and tour again? I think we will,” adding that “We’ll do this year, then go into the studio.”
Apparently, plans for the band’s first full album sessions since the recording of 2005’s A Bigger Bang, were in the works before the band even took to the road in North America. The Stones are currently touring the States on their Zip Code Tour.
The tour was put together to coincide with the re-release of their classic album Sticky Fingers. As well as Richards being keen on recording, Jagger is also apparently in the same boat.
Richards said “I know Mick wants to record again – he blurted it out in a meeting: ‘It’s about time we went back and recorded.’” adding “I was like, ‘We’re here to talk about a tour, right?’ So that will be interesting. End of the year.”
