Band to begin work on A Bigger Bang follow-up

The Rolling Stones are likely to begin recording a new album next month, according to Ronnie Wood.

Speaking to ABC Radio, the guitarist explained that the group will enter the studio before the end of the year in order to “lay some groundwork” for the follow-up to 2005’s A Bigger Bang.

“We’ll maybe go in the studio in December and cut a few tracks and see what happens,” Wood explained. “We’ll take it from there, see how it all goes. One thing at a time.”

Keith Richards had recently stated that the Stones would most likely begin recording in spring 2016, while Mick Jagger has claimed he has a stock of unrecorded songs.
