Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger will release his fourth solo album in November via Virgin Records, the label announced on its Web site.
Jagger, who turned 58 last week, has been recording the unnamed album in various studios around the world with help from such musicians as Pete Townshend, Missy Elliott, Lenny Kravitz and Rob Thomas.
“We could not be more thrilled that Mick has chosen Virgin as the home for his solo career,” Virgin Music Group vice chairman Nancy Berry said in a statement. “He is a legend whose timelessness is only furthered by his creativity, focus and drive. We look forward to this partnership with Mick with thegoal of making this new album his greatest solo success yet.”
Jagger’s last album, “Wandering Spirit,” was issued by Atlantic Records in 1993. The critically acclaimed release, produced by Rick Rubin, debuted at No. 11 and was certified gold in the United States. His other two albums, on CBS, were “She’s The Boss” (1985) and “Primitive Cool” (1987).
The Rolling Stones, who have released four albums on Virgin, are reportedly planning to release a new record and go out on tour next year in celebration of their 40th anniversary.
