According to a recent story, Rolling Stones luminaries Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood are preparing to release their new album Hackney Diamonds, with a launch and first single coming very soon. It’s been 18 years since The Rolling Stones issued an original studio album, and seven since Blue and Lonesome, their covers album. Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood have all lost drummer Charlie Watts, who died two years ago at the age of 80. Since then, rumors have circulated that the group has been working on new material using posthumous recordings of their late bandmate. The Hackney Gazette then ran false glazing adverts for a company called Hackney Diamonds last week.
And after signing up for updates on their website, it became evident that this is the title of The Rolling Stones’ planned new album. HackneyDiamonds.com now features the band’s tongue logo and a countdown to Wednesday, September 6th at 1:30pm BST, when the record’s official announcement and the release of its debut song, said to be called Angry, are expected. According to a music industry insider, “the Stones’ fans’ reaction to the announcement has been incredible.” They’ll have to wait and see if they’re angry or not. “The Stones are ecstatic about Hackney Diamonds and can’t wait for their fans to hear it.”
The false glazing ad read: “Welcome to Hackney Diamonds, specialists in glass repair.” This is why fans believe the first single is named Angry. Don’t get furious; instead, get things rectified. According to the site, The Rolling Stones’ new album will be published in October. And we were expecting the first single, Angry, to be released at the end of the countdown a week ago today.
