The Rolling Stones have released a teaser of one of their new songs, “Sweet Sounds of Heaven,” featuring Stevie Wonder and Lady Gaga.
The new track will appear on the band’s upcoming album, Hackney Diamonds, set to release on October 20 via Universal. Interestingly, Lady Gaga’s involvement in the album was a spontaneous occurrence, as she happened to be recording in the same New York studio and requested to make a guest appearance.
Hackney Diamonds marks a significant milestone for the Rolling Stones, as it’s their first album of original material since 2005’s A Bigger Bang and their first since the death of drummer Charlie Watts in 2021. The album was produced by Andrew Watt, known for his work with artists like Iggy Pop, Ozzy Osbourne, and Miley Cyrus.
The recording process spanned several iconic studios across the globe, including Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, Metropolis Studios in London, Sanctuary Studios in the Bahamas, and New York’s legendary Electric Lady Studios and The Hit Factory/Germano Studios.
Featuring 12 tracks, the album was introduced with the single “Angry,” accompanied by a video starring American actress Sydney Sweeney. Mick Jagger noted about the album:
“We wouldn’t have put this album out if we didn’t really like it.
“We must say that we are quite pleased with it … and we hope you all like it.”
