Legendary rock ‘n’ roller Keith Richards has revealed that The Rolling Stones are to cut some original material for the first time since 2005’s A Bigger Bang.
Their last album Blue & Lonesome, which came out last December, comprised purely of classic blues covers.
Now, guitarist Keef, has revealed in a video interview for his own website, that the band will be back in the recording studio together “very, very shortly.”
[We’re] Cutting some new stuff and considering where to take it next. Blue & Lonesome caught us a little bit by surprise in that we figured it was something we had to do, but we didn’t expect the response that it got.”
The 73-year-old added that while there are no plans at present to do a “volume two” of the blues covers record, that it “wouldn’t’ take a twist of the arm to do some more of that.”
“It’s such fun to record and there’s plenty more where that came from.
“But I just think that actually the Stones will use it as a boost of their energy and feelings of viability in this day and age and see what we can come up with next.”

We wonder whether Mick Jagger’s mysterious meeting with UK grime star Skepta has anything to do with the forthcoming record?
If so then maybe they could call it Grimme Shelter…
