Ronnie Wood Confirms He And Mick Jagger Recorded New Music For The Upcoming Rolling Stones Box Set
Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood was interviewed by Michael Odell from the New York Times this week and during their conversation, the rockstar announced that he recently worked with his long-time bandmate Mick Jagger for the first time after years for the 40th-anniversary box set of ‘Tattoo You.’
‘Tattoo You’ is considered one of the most phenomenal albums in the history of rock in England and it’s the 18th studio recording of the band. The album was originally released in 1981 via Rolling Stones Records and it’s still one of the best-selling albums of all time and has received numerous platinum certifications all around the world.
While the Rolling Stones family is getting ready to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the album, Ronnie was interviewed by The Times, during which he gave some details about what’s in the works. In their interview with Michael Odell, Wood revealed that he recorded nine special new tracks with Mick Jagger which will be featured in the upcoming box-set of the recording.
According to Stones guitarist, the album will be released on August 24, 2021, and in the meantime, he’s also recording new tracks with his pre-Rolling Stones band named Faces which will be released later this year.
Here is what Wood said during his recent interview:
“Me and Mick have done nine new tracks for the re-release of ‘Tattoo You’ and I, Rod and Kenney [the only surviving original members of Wood’s pre-Rolling Stones band the Faces] have been recording some new Faces music.
I’ve had a front-row seat on some amazing rock’n’roll projects these past couple of weeks. I’m making every day count.”
