The Rolling Stones’ new album is ‘in the can’
Keith Richards is divulging some details on the Rolling Stones’ new album. Richards recently told the Sun that the band’s upcoming LP is “in the can” and that “it might be a surprise to people, and I can’t say any more than that right now.”
Ron Wood also spoke about the new album in a separate interview with the Associated Press, saying the new tunes have a blues vibe.
“We went in to cut some new songs, which we did, but we got on a blues streak,” he said. “We cut 11 blues in two days. They are extremely great cover versions of Howlin’ Wolf and Little Walter, among other blues people. But they really sound authentic. When we heard them back after not hearing them for a couple of months, we were, ‘Who’s that? It’s you.’ It sounded so authentic.”
