The upcoming album Hackney Diamonds is their first original music in 18 years and The Rolling Stones are celebrating the occasion in style.
I can reveal that Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood are making a new documentary showing the making of the record.
I hope there will be a bit of drama too since they teamed up with the company behind The Kardashians to make it.
A source said: “Stones fans are in for a treat as not only are they getting a new album but a documentary too.”
“The band worked with Fulwell 73 on the production. They’re the team behind the Kardashians’ big deal with Hulu.
“The film will show the band as they began working on the 12 tracks that appear on Hackney Diamonds.
“It will give fans an intimate and candid look at Mick, Keith and Ronnie as they work their magic in the studio, including the banter between them.
“There will also be references to Charlie Watts, as this is the first record the band have recorded since his death in 2021.
“It also includes scenes from their big press event at the Hackney Empire where they premiered the video for Angry with Sydney Sweeney.
“It’s a very sophisticated production and it’s going to be great when it’s edited and the final cut is done.”
“Hackney Diamonds” is released on October 20th and the band have high hopes that it will be their 14th chart-topper.
Yesterday the Stones revealed the album’s full tracklist, with insiders revealing that “Sweet Sounds Of Heaven”, expected to be their next single, will be a whopping seven minutes and 22 seconds long.
For the track, the rockers teamed up with Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder.
The album is also a tribute to late bandmate Charlie – he played drums on two of the tracks before his death in August 2021.
Keith said: “Since Charlie left it’s different, he’s number four. He’s missed, and of course he’s missed incredibly, but thanks to Charlie we have Steve Jordan, who was his recommendation.
“He was a friend of ours, so he was a natural progression. Without Charlie’s blessing it would have been much more difficult.”
As a huge Stones fan, I’m looking forward to seeing what goes on behind closed doors.
Shania blew her away
SHANIA Twain’s outfit might have looked blue in this all-denim outfit – but her mood was anything but as she kicked off her UK tour.
The singer said she had “the time of her life” as she performed at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow on Thursday night, the first of her fortnight of shows across the country.
She enthused: “I’ve never had as much fun on stage in my life as I did this year. And I just want to thank you for being here to celebrate because I’m having the time of my life.
“I’m enjoying life, music and everything so much more than ever before.
“I wish I had learned this so many years earlier in my life, but it’s never too late.”
Jade criticizes baby claims
JADE Thirlwall has responded to online speculation that she is expecting her first child after gaining weight.
She hit out in an Instagram post after sharing photos with a bag over her stomach, leading fans to question whether she is pregnant.
The Little Mix singer wrote: “Due to the fact that my bandmates and sisters have beautiful children, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been asked if I’m next, when I’m having children or if I’m pregnant.”
“I’m a thick-skinned woman who’s gotten a little thicker in the last year or so, and that’s okay.
“Remember when commenting on someone else’s body: If you don’t know, don’t say. They don’t know their personal situation.”
With her former bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock back in the charts with her new track ‘My Love’, I can reveal that Jade is almost finished with her debut album.
The singer replied “It’s done” to a fan on Instagram as he begged for the record.
Little Mix took a break 16 months ago, so it’s time.
Sia: My divided suffering
SIA was so depressed after her divorce in 2016 that she barely left her bed for three years.
The Australian singer is preparing to release her first studio album of new music since This Is Acting seven years ago and blames her split from filmmaker Erik Anders Lang for the delay.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, she said: “I got divorced – it was such a dark time that I lay in bed severely depressed for three years. .
“Then I started again, just in small pieces. We finally had enough good songs to make an album.”
She just released lead single “Gimme Love.”
Her tenth album Reasonable Woman is scheduled to be released in spring next year.
