Rolling Stones guitarist releases first solo LP in 23 years 'Crosseyed Heart' during September
The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has unveiled two new solo songs.
The tracks are lifted from ‘Crosseyed Heart’, Richards’ first solo album in 23 years. The 15 track effort will be released on September 18, following 1992’s ‘Main Offender’ and 1988’s ‘Talk Is Cheap’.
Listen to both ‘Substantial Damage’ and ‘Amnesia’ below via Spotify.
The upcoming record will feature contributions from The Rolling Stones’ late saxophonist Bobby Keys, who died in December 2014. A press release states that the record was inspired by reggae, rock, country and the blues.
“I had a ball making this new record and working with [drummer] Steve Jordan and [guitarist] Waddy Wachtel again,” Richards said in a recent statement. “There’s nothing like walking into a studio and having absolutely no idea what you’re going to come out with on the other end.”
Meanwhile, Keith Richards recently stated that he was “ready” to record The Rolling Stones’ next album.
“Funny you should mention [recording]” Richards said to Rolling Stone recently. “Just last week, the word ‘studio’ popped up while we were rehearsing. I said, ‘Well, let’s find a time. I’m ready’.”
The Rolling Stones last released an album in 2005 in the form of ‘A Bigger Bang’.
