The Rolling Stones legendary guitar player Keith Richards has been working on new songs
The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards has been working on new songs.
The legendary guitarist has been working on tracks he plans to release with the X-pensive Winos, a collective of musicians headed by songwriter and producer Steve Jordan, whom he has previously teamed up with on his 'Talk Is Cheap' and 'Main Offender' solo albums.
The material Keith is preparing will be for an album called 'Main Offender', although he says that while it is "starting to blossom," there is no release date set.
Speaking on TV show 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' he said: "I got working with Steve Jordan and the X-pensive Winos and, well, when inspiration hits...!"
The 'Paint it Black' hitmaker also told how he's been trying to convince the rest of the Rolling Stones - Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts - to get back into the studio, but has had no luck so far.
He added: "I'm trying to nail them down but I don't want to crucify them."
The group are expected to play live next year in celebration of their 50th anniversary, though no dates have been confirmed.
