We Can’t Wait!
In a new interview with The Times, guitarist Ronnie Wood has just revealed that he’s reuniting with former bandmates Rod Stewart and Kenney Jones to record songs for a new album – their first in four decades because their last LP was 1973’s “Ooh La La”.
“I saw Mick [Jagger] here last week and Rod [Stewart] and Kenney [Jones] were here yesterday,” Wood said. “Me and Mick have done nine new tracks for the [40th anniversary] re-release of ‘Tattoo You’. And me, Rod and Kenney have been recording some new Faces music.”
“I’ve had a front-row seat on some amazing rock’n’roll projects these past couple of weeks,” he added.
Faces rose from the ashes of Small Faces. They recorded four studio albums before they broke up in 1975. At the time, Stewart found success as a solo artist, but the other members weren’t without projects after their disbandment. Wood joined Rolling Stones while Jones stepped in to replace Keith Moon in The Who.
Over the years, the surviving members of Faces reunited for a couple of live performances like the Rod Stewart concert at Wembley Stadium in 1986, at Stewart’s 70th birthday party and a charity event in 2015, and at the 2020 BRIT Awards where they wrapped up the show with an unforgettable live rendition of “Stay With Me”.
