Fresh off of their groundbreaking concert in Cuba, the Rolling Stones don’t plan on letting any moss gather on them.
The band has entered the studio and will release a new album “this year,” according to guitarist Ronnie Wood.
“We went in to cut some new songs, which we did,” Wood told The Associated Press. “But we got on a blues streak. We cut 11 blues in two days.”
In addition to new material, Wood said, the album will include “extremely great cover versions” of artists including Howlin’ Wolf and Little Walter.
Guitarist Keith Richards also noted that a new album would be arriving while appearing Monday at the Stones exhibit “Exhibitionism” at the Saatchi Gallery in London, but remained tight-lipped on details.
“There’s one coming,” Richards said. “I can’t say no more. My lips are sealed.”
The group’s last studio album, “A Bigger Bang,” was released in 2005.
