=> Article by kfgo.com: Mick Jagger swaps stage for set in art thriller ‘The Burnt Orange Heresy’
Part of the PC:
Mick Jagger, during the press conference of “The Burnt Orange Heresy”, talks about the “difficult times” we are facing and the incivility of contemporary politics, questioning the future that brings with it only unknowns.
While attending “The Burnt Orange Heresy” press conference at the 76th annual Venice Film Festival, Mick Jagger and Donald Sutherland show their support for the climate change protests taking place during the festival, with Jagger saying “we’re in a very difficult situation at the moment.” He also added, that he was absolutely standing behind the protests.
Not only will there be most probably the next tour (maybe already next year), but also, we can expect new releases like live albums (maybe from the last tour/s), or releases from the archives (we still wait for Atlantic City, for instance).
As for the next new album that we are waiting for for quite a while now, on August 1, radio station kshe95.com – real rock radio – had some interesting details to tell from an interview with Don Was, where he gave some details about the state of production.
That article was taken off from the official pages of kshe95.com – why, I don’t know – but the contents are still visible from Google’s cache. That, too, might vanish in the future and therefore I quote the essential parts of it’s contents here:
The Rolling Stones sitting on 40 tracks for new album
August 1, 2019
The Rolling Stones’ longtime producer Don Was says that the band is waiting for the perfect collection of 10 tracks before they release their latest album.
The band has been in the studio at various points over the past seven years, and during the sessions, recorded the pair of 2012 tracks “Gloom And Doom” and “One More Shot,” which appeared on that year’s GRRR! compilation.
In the midst of the sessions, the band also recorded their last studio set, the Grammy Award-winning blues collection, Blue & Lonesome, which was recorded in December 2015 during a break taping the latest batch of Mick Jagger/Keith Richards originals.
Don Was, who has been co-producing the Stones since 1994’s Voodoo Lounge, told us that over the course of the new album sessions, a tremendous amount of material has been tracked by the band. According to him, Jagger and Richards simply haven’t created the album they want to release yet: “We continue to start songs and it’s such a varied group of songs. We probably have 40 and depending on the 10 we choose to finish, the character of the album will be determined; right now, it could go any way. And there’s some really good stuff in there. And there’s a sense that making a ‘good album’ is not good enough — it’s gotta be great. So, I think when we feel we’ve got 10 things that are great an album’ll come out.”
So let’s start with their last message from Miami:
“See you soon”
That reads: If we’re not stopped by anything out of our control, we’ll be back playing music for you again. Wherever that may be. It could be South America again or Asia or a second leg in the US, starting April 2020… who knows?
And this is Keith, just coming off the trip of this tour:
One thing is clear: this band has enough offers for gigs to play 100 years more, no doubt. So as far as their health allows it, there’s only very few things that will stop ’em from coming back to us and play another string of gigs!
Somebody Up There Likes Me will premiere at the London Film Festival on October 12 – and it’s all about Ronnie Wood!
The documentary by Eagle Rock Films, is an intimate portrait and traces the lives and careers of Ronnie Wood. Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mike Figgis (‘Leaving Las Vegas’, ‘Internal Affairs’, ‘The Battle Of Orgreave’), it was produced with the full cooperation of and access to Ronnie himself. Also appearing in the film are interviews with Mick, Keith and Charlie, as well as his old sparring partner in the Faces, Rod Stewart. Sally, too has her say.
I’m very much looking forward to this piece!
