The band members dropped some hints last month about the forthcoming album. Keith Richards told Rolling Stone magazine that the group had been recording in London. Richards revealed that the album will be loaded with Chicago blues. Mick Jagger, on the other hand, shared on Twitter a photo of his harmonica case and some guitar picks. He used the hashtag #PlayingThe Blues.
The English rock band also posted a teaser video showing images of their equipment in a studio with the sound of guitar strumming and a voice counting in a song. Another video was shared showing the group playing some blues.
The Rolling Stone new album will be in double heavyweight vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with album download card. It will be available on multiple formats including digital download as well, the Los Angeles Times noted. Moreover, the deluxe edition includes a 75-page mini-book about the making of the album and band postcard prints.
