Mick Jagger’s new band Super Heavy have revealed that their debut album will be released on September 20.

The first album by the supergroup – whose star-studded line-up includes Joss Stone, Damian Marley, EurythmicsDave Stewart and composer AR Rahman – does not currently have a title, but it has been confirmed that the band’s first single will be called ‘Miracle Worker’.

Jagger told The Hollywood Reporter that the project had initially started with “ideas, a few guitar riffs and a few snippets of lyrics”, adding: "It's not my usual sort of way of working. You always want to leave some room for improvisation, but you need to have something, some songs, when you walk into the studio.

“It evolved very quickly. We sat around with our little pads [writing]. We did do a lot of jams but it’s all coherent and arranged. We just wrote them quickly.”

Jagger had previously compared Super Heavy to The Rolling Stones, claiming: "If you're a Rolling Stones fan there's definitely stuff you can relate to. Other stuff that you can't relate to so much, maybe if you listen you'll enjoy it. I don't think it's so far off the beaten track that you can't understand it."

Last month, Super Heavy group member Joss Stone was the reported target of an alleged kidnapping plot, after two men were discovered outside her Devon home with swords, rope and a body bag in their possession.

The suspects, who are Kevin Liverpool, aged 33, and Junior Bradshaw, aged 30, both from Manchester, have been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
