After revealing some of it first two singles, the Stones release this Friday “Hackney Diamonds”, their new studio album, the first since 2005.

This is probably one of the most anticipated albums of the end of the year: the Rolling Stones unveil Hackney Diamonds, their new record and first composed of original songs since 2005 and the first without their late drummer, Charlie Watts, this Friday October 20, 2023. Worn by Angry and Sweet Sounds Heaven, the two singles revealed in recent weeks, this 24th album which lasts almost 50 minutes includes twelve new songs, including collaborations with Elton John, Paul McCartney and Lady Gaga. /p>

What about its title, Hackney Diamonds? The Stones borrowed this formula has from London slang, given à broken glass. And the least we can say is that the group of octogenarians has lost none of its former energy . As left by presaging the excellent first taste called Angry, Hackney Diamonds has some gems, like the single Sweet Sounds Heaven, on which the Stones have a choice singer and pianist: Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder, Bite my head off, with Paul McCartney à the guitar or, to close the album, Rolling Stone Blues, cover of Rollin' Stone, success of their debut signed Muddy Waters. Is the circle complete?
