It’s so nice: another Stones tour’s ahead! And, er, ther was another thing …
Ah, yes, right. The new album! Since A Bigger Bang, an album which is much better than it’s title (IMHO, sorry), it’s been 17 years that we waited for a new official studio album.
Oh yes, there was Blue & Lonesome (2016) and I truly love this album from A to Z. But wasn’t that the surprising outcome of the band playing and jamming in the studio FOR a new album? Yes, it was. Now, what about that new album?
In the course of interviews that sourround any tour announcements, we can find several hints about productive days, Mick and Keith spent in Jamaica recently.
