2023 Album Black Vinyl
The album is their first studio set of new material since 2005's A Bigger Bang, coincidently released on 6thSeptember 18 years ago. Since then, the Stones have continued to smash box office records for fun on a series of global sellout tours and released 2016's Grammy Award winning 'Blue & Lonesome', which featured their brilliant versions of many of the blues tracks that helped shape their sound, and topped album charts around the world. Last year, they thrilled European audiences totalling nearly a quarter of a million on the anniversary Sixty tour.
Hackney Diamonds marks The Stones (Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood) first collaboration with New York-born producer and musician Andrew Watt, who was named Producer of the Year at the 2021 GRAMMY® Awards and has worked with Post Malone, Iggy Pop and Elton John.
The exciting news was shared by Mick, Keith and Ronnie at a special media launch event at the historic Hackney Empire, East London's epicentre of pioneering art for almost 125 years. The launch was hosted by American tv star Jimmy Fallon and streamed worldwide via YouTube.
