Keith Richards wants Rolling Stones to record a new album

Keith Richards says he wants to record a new album with The Rolling Stones.

The guitarist revealed the news as the band promotes its upcoming 15-date stadium tour of North America, which opens at Petco Park in San Diego on May 24.

“We're talking about doing some recording after this tour, but there's nothing definite,” Richards tells Rolling Stone. “We just threw out the idea. I'd like to get the boys back in the studio again, yeah. Anything can happen.”

Richards comments come on the heels of similar thoughts by frontman Mick Jagger, who told the same magazine that he would consider a solo album if the band project doesn’t come together.

“I'd love to record a Stones album,” said Jagger. “If that doesn't happen, then yes. That's a truthful answer. I've got songs that would be great for the Stones, and I've got songs that wouldn't be perfect for the Stones.”

The Stones project would represent the first new studio album in more than a decade; their last was 2005’s “A Bigger Bang.”

Richards also confirmed that he will release a new solo album this fall and is considering plans to support the project with a tour.
