The Rolling Stones are back with Hackney Diamondstheir first new album of original material in 18 years. Listen to the project below via Apple Music or Spotify.

Produced by Andrew Watt (Justin Bieber, Pearl Jam, Ozzy Osbourne), Hackney Diamonds was recorded across studios in Los Angeles, London, Bahamas, and New York City. It marks the Stones’ first new record since the 2016 blues covers LP Blue & Lonesome (and first original full-length since 2005’s A Bigger Bang), and the band promoted it accordingly: they posted a snippet of album cut “Angry” to a rage-inducing website that wouldn’t load properly.

Hackney Diamonds also features the Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder-featuring Song of the Week “Sweet Sounds of Heaven,” as well as contributions from late drummer Charlie Watts, former bassist Bill Wyman, and Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

Outside of his new album, Mick Jagger has made recent headlines by contemplating a posthumous Rolling Stones tour, and hinting that he may donate the proceeds from the band’s legendary catalog to charity rather than cashing out like most artists. The group’s early days are set to be memorialized in The Stones and Brian Jonesa documentary by Nick Broomfield that comes out in November.
