The Rolling Stones Announce First New Album Since 2005
Following an 11-year break from studio recordings, the Rolling Stones will return with a new album entitled Blue & Lonesome, out December 2 via Polydor.
The album features Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ronnie being backed by members of the Stones’ touring band, plus Eric Clapton on two tracks. Judging by a press release, it sounds like they’re hoping to channel the loose and sleazy feeling of their classic late ’60s and early ’70s run: Blue & Lonesome was recorded in just three days in London’s British Grove Studios, and features a host of covers from blues greats like Howlin’ Wolf and Willie Dixon.
