The Rolling Stones are back! The iconic rock n’ roll band unveiled their 26th studio album, Hackney Diamonds, on Friday (Oct. 20).

Hackney Diamonds marks the first new Rolling Stones album of original music since the release of 2005’s A Bigger Bang, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album also is the first since the death of band’s drummer Charlie Watts, who passed away at age 80 in 2021.

Hackney Diamonds features the previously released collaboration with Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder, “Sweet Sounds of Heaven,” plus tracks like “Bite My Head Off,” with bass from Paul McCartney and “Get Close” and “Live By the Sword,” both of which have piano from Elton John.

Other guest spots on the album include two tracks recorded with the late Watts (“Mess It Up,” “Live By the Sword”); the latter also features an assist from former bassist Bill Wyman. The album — which ends with a Jagger/Richards cover of the Muddy Waters song that inspired the band’s name (“Rolling Stone Blues”) — was recorded all around the world, from Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles to Metropolis Studios in London, Sanctuary Studios in Nassau, Bahamas and Electric Lady Studios and The Hit Factory/Germano Studios in New York.
