There’s good news for the fans of The Rolling Stones. The band is getting ready to release the long-awaited follow-up album to 2005’s A Bigger Bang. Band member Ronnie Wood revealed that the band recently spent a few days in the studio, recording a mixture of blues covers and originals, reports the Independent.

Wood said in an interview that they went in to cut some new songs, which they did, adding that they still got on a blues streak. Speaking at the group’s London installation Exhibitionism, based at the Saatchi Gallery, Wood added that the album could arrive later in 2016.
