Keith Richards Discusses New Rolling Stones Album


The Rolling Stones are working on a new album, according to guitarist Keith Richards.

"I'm going to sound like Trump — 'It will happen; don't worry about it' — but it's in the early stages," Richards told The Wall Street Journal. "We have some stuff down, which is very interesting. It's more difficult for us to write together the further apart we are, but it also has its benefits in that we come back to it from a different angle."

"I find it an interesting challenge to write for Mick [Jagger]," he added. "There's no point in my giving him a song that's beyond his range or that he's not comfortable with. What I really like to do is write a song where Mick goes, 'Yeah, right, I'm in!' That's what I try and do, because I'm writing for the lead singer of the Rolling fucking Stones, and that is my job — to give him a riff that he leaps on and goes, 'Right, I know what to do with this.'"

A new record would mark the band's first release of original music since 2005's A Bigger Bang.
