Rolling Stones Confirms New Album With Paul McCartney and more

The legendary band, The Rolling Stones, has introduced their first-ever single, “Angry” from their highly anticipated album, “Hackney Diamonds,” scheduled for release on October 20. This album marks their first studio release in nearly twenty years.

In an exclusive interview with the New York Times, they hinted at exciting collaborations with famous artists like Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, and Bill Wyman, their original bassist.

Fans can look forward to hearing McCartney’s distinctive bass melodies in the track “Bite My Head Off,” while Wonder’s mastery of the keyboard and Gaga’s powerful vocals grace “Sweet Sounds of Heaven.” Elton John’s piano expertise is evident in “Live By The Sword,” a song that also features the iconic bass notes of Bill Wyman.

What’s interesting is that McCartney and Elton John, who have had their share of public spats with the Stones in the past, are now joining forces as collaborators.

Mick Jagger, the legendary frontman of Rolling Stones, shed light on their recording process, explaining, “We don’t overthink it. After a few takes, we move on. Questions like, ‘Does this song fit? Is it too repetitive?’ can be pondered later. Our focus is on maintaining the momentum.”

Their previous musical offering, “A Bigger Bang,” made waves back in 2005. “Hackney Diamonds” will be their first album without their iconic drummer, Charlie Watts, who sadly passed away in 2021 at the age of 80. However, fans can expect to hear his drumming, recorded before his passing. The complete tracklist is still a mystery.

This global album was recorded in several renowned studios, including Henson Recording Studios in LA, Metropolis Studios in London, Sanctuary Studios in Nassau, Electric Lady Studios, and The Hit Factory/Germano Studios in New York.
