The long-awaited return of The Rolling Stones to the music scene is finally here. The legendary band gears up to release their first album of original material in 18 years. Their last album of this kind was the 2005 hit “A Bigger Bang.”
The band made the exciting announcement on Monday, revealing the title of their upcoming album, “Hackney Diamonds.” Further details about the release will be unveiled at a special event set to take place in East London’s vibrant Hackney district. The event will feature live interviews with iconic band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood, and it will be hosted by none other than “The Tonight Show” host, Jimmy Fallon.
Global Livestream Event on YouTube
Fans worldwide won’t have to miss out on this significant moment in music history. The event is scheduled to be live-streamed exclusively on YouTube. The livestream will kick off on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. BST, 9:30 a.m. EST, and 6:30 a.m. PST, ensuring that fans from different time zones can tune in.
In a statement, The Rolling Stones expressed their desire to make this a global celebration, saying, “Hackney may be at the heart of Hackney Diamonds, but this is a truly global moment we want to share with fans around the world via YouTube.”
A Teaser Campaign That Sparked Excitement
Leading up to this major announcement, the band initiated a cryptic teaser campaign. Their iconic mouth and tongue logo was projected onto the facades of major landmarks in cities across the globe, including New York, London, and Paris. This enigmatic campaign generated significant buzz and anticipation among fans.
Honouring the Legacy of Charlie Watts
“Hackney Diamonds” marks The Rolling Stones’ first album since the passing of their legendary drummer, Charlie Watts, in 2021. His absence undoubtedly leaves a profound void in the band, but the forthcoming release is a testament to their enduring musical journey and commitment to their fans.
As music enthusiasts eagerly await more information about “Hackney Diamonds,” this new album promises to be a remarkable addition to The Rolling Stones’ iconic discography, cementing their place in music history once again.
