Rolling Stones Making Plans To Start Work On New Album Over Christmas
The Rolling Stones have made fans’ Christmas dreams come true by revealing they’re planning to start work on a new album over the holidays. Ronnie Wood let the news slip during an interview with ABC Radio earlier this week, revealing he and his bandmates are hoping to hit the studio next month to start work on what will be their first album since 2005’s A Bigger Bang.
“We’ll maybe go in the studio in December and cut a few tracks and see what happens,” he said. “We’ll take it from there, see how it all goes. One thing at a time.” The news comes weeks after fellow Stones guitarist Keith Richards told various interviewers he was hoping to regroup with Wood, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts for sessions next April. The Stones wrapped up their North America Zip Code trek this summer and the bandmates are now preparing for a South American run in early 2016, with rehearsals scheduled to start in January. The band’s next gig is set for the America Latina Ole stadium in Santiago, Chile on February 3. Jagger and company will also visit Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Columbia and Mexico as part of the month-long tour.
