Ronnie Wood says The Rolling Stones are making real progress on their new album. We’ve got the latest on the long awaited project.
Ronnie said, "We're working now to finish up the studio album that we've been working on for years. We're bringing that to a head and things are going really well now. We just comeback from New York [and] we're finishing off in L.A. in a couple of weeks time. And hopefully we'll have a new package to bring, the best one for the last 50 years I reckon, and you will be seeing us live again next year hopefully too."
A spokesperson for the Rolling Stones had no official comment, but The Sun indicated the sessions were held at Electric Lady Studios in Manhattan, and the album is expected to have a summer 2023 release..
Back in April, 2020, the Stones actually released one of the new songs, "Living in a Ghost Town." It was the legendary group’s original song since “Doom and Gloom” and “One More Shot” from the album GRRR! (back in 2012).
In 2016, The Rolling Stones went into Mark Knopfler's British Grove Studios in London with the big goal of recording an album of original material. As they were trying to familiarize themselves with the studio, they began working on a bunch of blues covers, which they then decided to record. The result was the album Blue & Lonesome.
Their last album of all original music was A Bigger Bang in 2005.
