The Rolling Stones are back with their album of new material in decades

Interesting. After many, many, MANY years of earning many, many, MANY hundreds of millions of dollars touring the old hits, the Rolling Stones return today with an album full of new material entitled Hackey Diamonds. Nice, but (a) is it any good and (b) will anyone outside of the hardcore faithful care? It’ll be interesting to see how this will play out. (NOTE: Livestream starts at 9:30 am EDT/12:30 GMT)

Here’s “Angry,” the first single.

And here’s some shots from the album announcement event. Credit to Dave Hogan.
