The Rolling Stones record new song with Paul McCartney

The Rolling Stones have recorded a song with Paul McCartney for the band’s next studio album.

CNN reports that a representative for the Stones confirmed via email that McCartney plays bass “on just one RS track.”

Denying press reports that the collaboration also includes the Beatles’ other surviving member, the spokesman said the recording featured “no Ringo Starr at all.”

More details about the project were made public by Rolling Stone, who reports the band have spent the past several weeks recording new music in Los Angeles with producer Andrew Watt (Post Malone, Ozzy Osbourne, Miley Cyrus, among many others), and the project is nearing the mixing phase.

Keith Richards previously revealed that The Rolling Stones would complete the new record with Steve Jordan following the passing of Charlie Watts in 2021.

“We do have a lot of stuff of Charlie Watts still in the can,” explained the guitarist last spring. “We were halfway through making an album when he died… Of course, if we want to carry on recording, we’re gonna need drums, and it’s gonna be Steve Jordan.”

The project would mark the follow-up to the Stones’ most recent album of originals, 2005’s “A Bigger Bang”, and the 2016 covers collection, “Blue & Lonseome.”

The Rolling Stones just released a new package, “GRRR Live!”, which delivers the group’s 2012 show at Newark, NJ’s Prudential Center that was originally broadcast via pay-per-view as part of the 50 & Counting Tour.

“GRRR Live!” is now available in multiple formats, including 3LP black, 3LP coloured white (Indies exclusive) 3LP red (d2c exclusive), 2CD, DVD + 2CD, BluRay+ 2CD; the Blu-ray and digital versions also include Dolby Atmos.
