UPDATED Rolling Stones New Album “Hackney Diamonds” and Single “Angry” Will Be Announced September 6th


UPDATED The fall looks very promising now.

Keith Richards says the new Rolling Stones album, called “Hackney Diamonds,” will be announced next Tuesday. A clip of the first single, called “Angry,” was also released.

We already know many stars make cameos including ex Stones Bill Wyman and (UPDATED no Mick Taylor,) plus Paul McCartney and (UPDATED no Ringo Starr). There are no doubt others, including the last playing of drums by the late great Charlie Watts. As I exclusively reported, the Stones finished recording in the Bahamas this past spring.

Will the album include their pandemic hit, “Living in a Ghost Town”? No, says a source. And does this mean another US tour? Again, fingers crossed!
