    LONDON — The Rolling Stones keep on rolling: They're planning to release a new album, possibly this year, Ronnie Wood said Monday.

    Fresh from their historic free concert in Cuba on March 25, the "world's greatest rock band" is in London for the preview of The Rolling Stones: Exhibitionism, a vast interactive multimedia exhibit covering 20,000 square feet of London's high-culture Saatchi Gallery with five decades of Stones history.

    But Stones fans may be more interested in what Wood had to say when he and Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts arrived together for the show's private preview, all smiles and arms around shoulders. The show opens to the public Tuesday.



    The Stones last released a studio album in 2005, but Wood said they have been in the studio and recorded some new material and some blues covers.

    "We went in to cut some new songs, which we did," the 68-year-old Wood said. "But we got on a blues streak. We cut 11 blues in two days.

    "They are extremely great cover versions of Howlin' Wolf and Little Walter, among other blues people. But they really sound authentic."

    When asked when the new material would be released, Wood said only: "This year."

    "When we heard them back after not hearing them for a couple of months, we were, 'Who's that? It's you,'" Wood said. "It sounded so authentic."

    Richards, however, wouldn't go into any detail on the recent recording sessions.

    "There's one coming," the 72-year-old guitarist said of a new album. "I can't say no more. My lips are sealed."

    Much more...

    Man, if these guys can put something together that's similar to what Keith did on his own last year then I'm all for it. The Keith solo record was THAT good. If this is just going to be like A Bigger Bang, then just go away guys. I think it'll be heavier and cooler than that, though.

    Let's do this.

    Yep! Much respect to the Stones. they have stayed together and they continue to work even at their age. Most people their age have retired and sit online bitching all day :jj:

    They should do themselves a favor and hire Mick Taylor again. One of the best guitarists ever.

    Yeah, they probably hate the very sight of each other at times but they've held it all together and survived. Amazing.

    Even though they are a bit of a nostalgia act, I respect this. It keeps the members of the band engaged.

    Also, the band released an album in 2009, "A Bigger Bang," and it was great. Its difficult to gauge, because its the Stones, and you naturally compare it to their other work; music that is, almost literally, the Greenwich Meantime of rock and roll; the rock and roll that other rock and roll is judged by. Looking at it on its own, though, it is a great album .

    It will suck. I'm sorry but I find the Stones to be one of the most overrated bands ever. After U2 of course.
