Longtime Rolling Stones producer Don Was shared some details about even more new music from the icons. He says the band pushed aside material to record their latest blues cover album ‘Blue & Lonesome’. He explains how the Stones are hitting the studio and tracking tunes in less concentrated amounts of time than in the past. “There’s lots of them. Maybe we had three songs — we might’ve been on the third or fourth of them and we took the blues detour in December — but we went back in June and recorded more. And it’s still pretty early. Y’know, in the past, it’s been a year. We don’t actually toil, y’know, for 12 hours a day for a year, but it’s a lifestyle record. You shape your life around making a record, and really,so far, there hasn’t been an appetite for that. So, we’ve been doing it in a couple of little bursts”
Although it reached number 1 in 10 countries Blue & Lonesome fell short of the top spot in the United States and peaked at #4. No hard date has been set for the next Stones release.
