Ronnie Wood says The Rolling Stones are committed to finishing the album they started recording a few years ago, but they're not rushing to get it done.
"It's a matter of getting us all together again. Everyone's in a different part of the world. So, we thought, instead of putting an emphasis on rushing an album, we're doing the complete opposite and taking really a long time and putting live shows first and hoping we can just drive this COVID thing away and learn to live with it, you know."
In April of 2020, the Stones rush-released one of the new songs, "Living in a Ghost Town." It was their first original song since “Doom and Gloom” and “One More Shot” from their 2012 compilation album GRRR!
In 2016, they went into Mark Knopfler's British Grove Studios in London with the goal of recording an album of original material. But while trying to familiarize themselves with the studio, they started doing a bunch of blues covers, which they decided to record. The result was 2016's Blue & Lonesome.
Their last album of original material was 2005's A Bigger Bang.
