Ronnie Wood says he'll join Mick Jagger in the studio next week to flesh out more songs for the next Rolling Stones album, even though they already have a few tracks in the can.
Ronnie said, "Mick is not just settling for, 'Okay, we've got 12 tracks,' you know what I mean? He is really getting into, 'Alright then, we may have 12 tracks, but let's look at it closer. Not all of them are up to standard.' He wants to keep his special standard going, so that's why we're trying things around now and experimenting and who knows what we'll come up with. It's quite exciting."
Earlier this month Keith Richards said that he's also hit the studio with Mick a few times this year because the goal is to "make a really interesting Stones album." He added that he hopes to get back in the studio next summer after their U.S. tour in the spring.
The Stones' last album of original material was 2005's A Bigger Bang. Their last album was a covers collection, 2016's Blue and Lonesome.
