The Rolling Stones‘ Ronnie Wood has revealed that the band are looking to release their forthcoming album by the end of the year.
Speaking at the opening of the new Rolling Stones exhibition in London the guitarist gave some hints about what to expect on the upcoming release which he said to be “bluesy”, according to NME.
“They really sound authentic,” he was quotes as saying.
“We went in to cut some new songs, which we did. But we got on a blues streak. We cut 11 blues in two days… When we heard them back after not hearing them for a couple of months, we were, ‘Who’s that?’ ‘It’s you.’ It sounded so authentic.”
Keith Richards revealed last year that the band were recording new material for their 25th album.
“I was in London last week, and the boys and I got together, and yeah, there are now definitely plans to record,” he said to iHeartRadio.
At the time he said they were looking to get in the studio in February this year and by the sounds of it they have been.
It will be the band’s first new album since 2005’s A Bigger Bang.
