The Rolling Stones will be releasing their first album in over a decade entitled Blue and Lonesome. It is the band’s 23rd British and 25th American studio album, set for release on 2nd December 2016. Recorded in just 3 days, the band’s approach was to create a spontaneous sound, recorded live in the studio and without overdubs and sonically took the band back to their blues’ roots. It is The Stones’ first album to feature only cover songs and the most covers on a Stones album next to the group’s debut album, The Rolling Stones, in 1964. It will be their first studio release since 2005’s A Bigger Bang.
