Following a series of teasers with their renowned logo displayed on prominent landmarks across cities like New York, London, and Paris, the Rolling Stones are set to release “Hackney Diamonds.” It marks their first studio production since 2005.
This Wednesday, details will be unveiled in East London’s Hackney district. Key band members, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ron Wood, will share insights during a live session with “Tonight Show” host, Jimmy Fallon. The global streaming of this launch will be exclusively available on YouTube.
The Stones mentioned, “While ‘Hackney Diamonds’ centers on Hackney, this is a significant global event that we wish to broadcast to our fans globally through YouTube.”
Over the years, the group has been working on fresh content. Interestingly, they took a short hiatus to produce a blues album in 2016. The new album is rumored to feature Beatles’ legends, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
This album release also marks their first since the 2021 passing of Charlie Watts, their founding drummer. Watts was pivotal to the band, having missed only one of their thousands of shows and nearly every track since their inception in 1962. Following his passing, drummer Steve Jordan joined them on tour.
Despite approaching their 80s, the Rolling Stones continue to electrify audiences. Jagger, who celebrated his 80th birthday in July, still delivers unmatched vocal and physical performances. The band jumped back into their “No Filter” tour across North America post a pandemic pause in 2021 and celebrated their sixtieth anniversary with the “Sixty” European tour.
