Last month, we reported a rumor that Eric Clapton had joined The Rolling Stones in the studio for the album they’re working on. Well, it’s true.
Keith Richards tells BBC 6 Music that Slowhand “dropped by for a couple of numbers,” adding that the sessions had been “like old times down in Richmond” where both the Stones and Clapton with The Yardbirds used to perform.
Richards said the album will feature “a lot of Chicago blues… The titles I can’t reveal at the moment, for the reason that I can’t quite remember them and I haven’t got a list with me.” He adds that it will be out in the fall, although they still have more work to do in the studio, and they plan to be back on the road next year.
This will be the Stones’ first studio album since A Bigger Bang in 2005.
