The Rolling Stones has delighted thousands of fans following the confirmation of a new, blues-inspired album that will be released this year.
Keith Richards said: "We're actually in the studio in the moment cutting new stuff,"
Guitarist Ronnie Wood added that the band recently "cut 11 songs in two days. Just 'bang' - like that."
"It was a surprise to us. We didn't intend doing it. I wish I could play them to you now. I'm so excited about them."
This is the first time that the legendary band has released an album since 2005 although they wrote two new songs for the 2012 compilation record Grrrr!
Wood added: "They sound so authentic it's frightening,"
"We didn't spend any time rehearsing them or anything. We just picked a song that suited Mick's harmonica or a guitar riff... and they worked out pretty good.
"It was like, 'this is what the Stones do, we play blues.'"
Meanwhile, Mick Jagger added: "It's sounding really good. We did one session before Christmas. We'll probably do more."
