Keith Richards has revealed that THE ROLLING STONES are working on some new tunes.
During an appearance on CBS Sunday Morning, the legendary guitarist revealed he’d been doing some songwriting alongside Mick Jagger and drummer Steve Jordan, who toured with the band last year following the death of Charlie Watts.
“It’ll be interesting to find out the dynamics now that Steve’s in the band,” Richards says. “It’s sort of metamorphosing into something else. I was working with Mick last week, and Steve, and we came up with some, eight or nine new pieces of material. Which is overwhelming by our standards. Other times, [songwriting is] like a desert.”
