HITS Daily Double


Paul McCartney has joined The Rolling Stones on a track for the band’s latest recording project. Rolling Stone got confirmation from a source with knowledge of the sessions that McCartney played bass on a new Stones song, but said source disputed a report in Variety that Ringo Starr also participated in the sessions.

RS reports that The Stones have spent the past several weeks recording in L.A. with producer Andrew Watt (Post Malone, Ozzy Osbourne, Miley Cyrus) and that the project is nearing the mixing phase. It’s unclear whether The Stones have been working on their first album of new material since 2005’s A Bigger Bang, but in a January Instagram post, Keith Richards stated, “There’s some new music on its way."

In 2016 the band issued the all-covers LP Blue & Lonesome. Their most recent release was the one-off 2020 single “Living in a Ghost Town.”
