Keith Richards hints that new music may be coming soon from The Rolling Stones


Over the last year, Rolling Stones members have revealed in multiple interviews that the band has been working on songs for a new album, and now guitarist Keith Richards has hinted that it may not be too long before fans get to hear some of that material.

In a recent message posted on his social media sites, Richards shared a photo of him playing an electric bass guitar accompanied by a note that reads, “About last night! New music on the horizon!”

Last April, The Stones released the single “Living in a Ghost Town,” and in a Rolling Stone interview this past September, frontman Mick Jagger told the magazine that he was working on several other tracks that the band began recording before the COVID-19 crisis, from the same sessions that yielded “Ghost Town.”

In addition, Richards told U.K. magazine Classic Rock in an interview published last month that during the pandemic he’s been “sit[ting] around writing songs, basically, or parts of songs.”

In other Stones news, guitarist Ronnie Wood recently made available lithographic prints of the hand-drawn set lists he created for all of the concerts the band played during its 2019 No Filter Tour of the U.S. and Canada. The prints are priced at $100 each, and can be purchased at
