The Rolling Stones are due back in the studio this month to continue working on the album they started last December.
With the songs leaning in a blues direction, there is a report out of London that Eric Clapton could end up on two songs. The Sun quotes a source who says, “Eric was in the next studio, so he came in to say hello. They ended up jamming and recorded two songs. [Producer] Don [Was] reckons it’s the best thing he has ever done with the Stones.”
A spokeswoman for the Stones tells us, “Nope, nothing to report yet.” And Clapton’s spokeswoman chimes in with, “No clue.”
Clapton is no stranger to working with the Stones. Last year’s deluxe reissue of Sticky Fingers featured an unreleased version of “Brown Sugar” with him on it, and he has also performed with them in concert over the years.
The Stones’ last studio album was A Bigger Bang in 2005.
