The Rolling Stones Announce New Album ‘Hackney Diamonds’ – First Original Material in 18 Years

The iconic rock band, The Rolling Stones, is gearing up to unveil their latest studio album, titled “Hackney Diamonds.”

This album marks a significant return to original material, a venture they haven’t embarked upon since 2005.

Members of the band, including Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood, are scheduled for an interview about the new music on September 6 in Hackney, east London.

The interview will be conducted by American TV host Jimmy Fallon, generating considerable anticipation among fans and the music industry.

A Long-Awaited Album

The release of “Hackney Diamonds” signifies a remarkable 18-year gap since The Rolling Stones last created an album featuring new original material, which was their LP titled “A Bigger Bang.”

It’s important to note that their 2016 studio album, “Blue & Lonesome,” primarily comprised blues covers and was a departure from their original work.

Teasing the New Music

The band has built excitement around their upcoming album through online teasers and a cleverly placed local newspaper advertisement in the Hackney Gazette.

The ad contained a website link and a phone number, with the latter leading to an automated message that playfully introduced “Hackney Diamonds” as specialists in glass repair, cleverly alluding to the local slang for broken glass.

The website address was also shared on the band’s Instagram page, and upon visiting the site, users are greeted with a visually striking representation of shattered glass.

The interactive design allows users to click on the webpage, causing the glass to break away, revealing a countdown to the September 6 interview.

Engaging Fans Worldwide

In discussing their album release strategy, the band emphasized the global significance of “Hackney Diamonds,” stating their desire to share this moment with fans worldwide via YouTube.

The interview, set for 2:30 pm BST on September 6, will be available as a live-stream on YouTube, ensuring that fans from all corners of the world can partake in the excitement.

A Glorious Rock Legacy

The Rolling Stones, formed in the early 1960s, have left an indelible mark on the world of rock music.

Over the years, they’ve earned numerous accolades, including induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1989.

With eight number one singles in the UK, their influence and iconic status in the music industry remain unmatched.

A Dynamic Journey Continues

Despite the passage of time, The Rolling Stones continue to be a dynamic force in the music world.

Their 60th-anniversary tour across Europe in the previous year showcased their enduring appeal.

The tour featured performances in major cities and memorable appearances, including the British Summer Time (BST) festival in London.

While the loss of drummer Charlie Watts in August 2021 was a significant moment in the band’s history, they’ve persevered and continue to captivate audiences worldwide.

As fans eagerly await the release of “Hackney Diamonds,” the Rolling Stones’ legacy as rock legends continues to evolve, demonstrating their enduring passion for music and their ability to reinvent themselves for a new generation of listeners.
