The Rolling Stones’ new album will be called Hackney Diamonds, the first album with original music since A Bigger Bang in 2005. Not to be confused with Blue and Lonesome in 2016 where the band features blues cover songs.

We even have the first glimpse of a new song called Don’t Get Angry With Me (or Angry.) In true TRS fashion, they played a practical joke by uploading a snippet of the song on their website which resulted in an error message. 

When fans took to social media to work out what was going on, the rock band responded with “Sorry, don’t be angry with me…”

Well played The Rolling Stones, well played.

This will be The Rolling Stone’s first album with new drummer Steve Jordan, replacing Charlie Watts who has drummed a big part in all their previous albums.

Steve told the Rolling Stones publication, how he “likes creating a groove for Mick to feel comfortable dancing in.”

Honouring the memory of Steve by, “going back to the original stuff on the records. The last time I saw them play, in Chicago (in 2019) I was amazed at how Charlie sounded. He sounded so good,” Vanity Fair.
