Mick Jagger uploaded a video of him tearing it up on the harmonica in the studio on Tuesday (Sept. 4), providing fresh hope for Rolling Stones fans that new music is coming. The video, which features Jagger wailing on bluesy jam on harmonica in what appears to be a home studio is captioned “new tunes” and also shows a computer with recording software open as he plays.
The teaser sparked further speculation that Jagger and the Stones are in the process of working on a follow-up to the band’s 2016 covers collection, Blue & Lonesome. A new Stones album will mark the band’s first disc of original material in 13 years.
In 2017, Stones guitarist Keith Richards held an “Ask Keith Richards” YouTube segment, where he was asked by a fan if he was inspired to get back in the studio with the Stones to begin recording, to which Richard replied “Yes, yes, we are — very, very shortly.”
