The Rolling Stones Announce First New Album Since 2005

Legendary rock band The Rolling Stones announced Monday that they will soon release their first new album in 18 years.

More details about the album, titled “Hackney Diamonds,” will be revealed Wednesday at an event in East London’s Hackney district. The band, which comprises longtime members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, will be interviewed live by Jimmy Fallon during the event, which will be live-streamed on YouTube at 9:30 a.m. EST, according to The Associated Press.

“Hackney may be at the heart of Hackney Diamonds, but this is a truly global moment we want to share with fans around the world via YouTube,” The Rolling Stones said in a statement. (RELATED: Mick Jagger Just Had Heart Surgery. Here’s What’s Happening Now)

The band projected its logo onto several major landmarks as part of a cryptic marketing campaign. The iconic mouth and tongue was photographed around the world, including in New York City, London and Paris.

Charlie Watts, the drummer for The Rolling Stones since 1963, died in Aug. 2021 at age 80. This occurred after the coronavirus forced the band to cancel their 2020 “No Filter” tour. In 2022, Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID-19, causing him to cancel an Amsterdam concert that was part of the band’s “Sixty” tour.
