There’s some good news for The Rolling Stone fans. Recent reports suggest that the popular musical band, the Rolling Stones, is all set to release their new album sometime this year as work on the upcoming album has already started.

In a recent installment of fan Q&A web series titled "Ask Keith Richards," band guitarist Keith Richards, 73, confirmed that the band members are soon heading to the studio to record their first album of new material in 12 years post 2005’s hit “A Bigger Bang,” their 24th studio album.

Band in early stages of recording new album

The guitarist revealed that the band is in the initial stages of recording the new album. Notably, the Stones had released a covers album titled “Blue & Lonesome” in 2016 after their last original album “A Bigger Bang.” The rock group’s last year released old blues covers album proved to be a massive hit among the fans. The album also featured legendary guitarist Eric Clapton.

Volume two of Blues album not in the making

When asked if fans can expect a volume two of the blue covers album, Richards replied saying they won’t be releasing any such album straight away and that it definitely wouldn’t be their next project.

“I don’t think we’re going to sucker into that straight away,” the guitarist said.

In related news, earlier this month, the Rolling Stone’s frontman Mick Jagger, 73, was spotted in a picture on Instagram alongside British grime star Skepta 34. The two can be seen in a recording studio. In the picture, Skepta is rocking a pair of dark sunglasses and is standing next to Jagger while smoking. The Instagram photo in question has sparked speculation among fans about the possibility of the two collaborating on new music.

The legendary rock musical band also comprises of Ronnie Wood, Sir Mick Jagger, and Charlie Watts.

The band will kick off their upcoming musical tour dubbed the No Filter Tour on Sept. 9 in Hamburg, Germany.
