KKLZ Music News

Keith Richards offered up an interesting piece of news in a video shared on his social media channels today (January 11.)

In the 18-second clip below, Richards wishes his followers a belated Happy New Year. He then says, “There’s some new music on its way, and hopefully, I’ll get to see you. Anyway, let’s keep our fingers crossed.”


Back in November 2022, Ronnie Wood shared the Rolling Stones were working on new music some of which will feature late drummer Charlie Watts. He told The Sun, “We are recording the new album now and we are going to LA in a few weeks to carry it on and finish it off. Charlie is on some of the tracks and drummer Steve Jordan.” Watts, of course, died in August 2021 at age 80.

The last studio album the Stones released was 2016’s Blue & Lonesome, which was a covers album of blues songs. The last LP of original material from the legendary band came in 2005 with A Bigger Bang.

The Rolling Stones have released original material since 2005 that was included on greatest hits compilations, like “Doom & Gloom” and “One More Shot” from 2012’s GRRR! In the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, the band also released the stand-alone single “Living in a Ghost Town.”
