The Rolling Stones have announced the details of Hackney Diamonds, their first new album of material in 18 years. Such an event deserves to be celebrated simply because The Rolling Stones are so legendary. 60 years into their career, and still finding new ways to bring rock and roll to the masses is quite simply incredible. With 24 studio albums under their belt and millions of fans across the world, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood deserve all of the plaudits they get. Continuing to do what you love at an age that many would be looking to slow down to a glacial pace that’s what inspiration looks like.

Anyway, Hackney Diamonds by The Rolling Stones will be released on October 20. It follows up 2005’s A Bigger Bang, but also 2016’s blues covers album Blue & Lonesome. It was recorded across the world in various legendary studios. They are Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, Metropolis Studios in London, Sanctuary Studios in Nassau, Bahamas and Electric Lady Studios and The Hit Factory/Germano Studios in New York. The vibrant artwork was designed by digital artist Paulina Almira.

The first song to be pulled from the record is out now as well. It’s called “Angry” and is typical foot-stomping, dancefloor-filling and ass-shaking Stones brilliance. Stained by the LA sun as much as the rough roads of East London, it’s timeless in every sense. From the fresh riffs to the singalong-ready chorus, it’s going to be trapped in your head for weeks to come.

The video for the track is also a love letter to the band’s journey. Featuring moving billboards showing off footage from their years of service, it’s an ode to how much things change as well as stay the same. It also features Sydney Sweeney, cruising down Los Angeles taking in the sights and sounds. It’s a moment of fun and freedom, perfectly captured.
