Keith Richards: New Rolling Stones Record Coming Next Year

Keith Richards says The Rolling Stones have “definite plans” to record next year after a tour of South America.

The Stones guitarist talked about the Stones’ plans to record their first studio album since 2005’s A Bigger Bang during an iHeartRadio ICONS broadcast from New York on Tuesday.

Richards, who is releasing a new solo album, Crosseyed Heart, on Friday, said in a live question-and-answer session that he was in London last week and got together with Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.
