Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards says there are more concerts coming in 2015, as well as his new solo album.
Richards spoke to the Associated Press in New York’s Germano Studios, where he’s been working on his first solo album since 1992’s Main Offender. Richards said the album, which he’s co-producing with drummer and regular partner Steve Jordan, is “finished, but I don’t want to put it out while the Stones are working, so I’m thinking next June. We had no rush. I think we spent a couple years…Every month or two we’d come down here and do a couple (songs) a day and knock off a couple of tracks…Nearly every record I’ve made is…’You’ve got another five days,’ but this one we’re taking our time.”
The Stones will be getting back on the road October 25 to make up Australian and New Zealand dates canceled after Mick Jagger‘s girlfriend L’Wren Scott committed suicide in March, and Richards said South America is on tap for 2015; “They’ve got South America lined up in February. Buenos Aires. Peru. And after that, I know what the Stones tours are like, they tend to get extended. Asked if the group could potentially tour most of 2015, Richards said, “It sounds like that.”
