Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr ‘to feature on new Rolling Stones album’
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will apparently come together on the new Rolling Stones album.
The two surviving Beatles have reportedly recorded parts on the new Stones album, which will be produced by Grammy-winning producer Andrew Watt.
Multiple sources told Variety that Starr has played drums on the new album, while McCartney has recorded bass for certain tracks.
According to the sources, recording sessions went ahead in Los Angeles, with the album almost ready to be mixed.
The new Rolling Stones album is yet to be announced, but the band has given several clues that a record is in the works.
The band’s guitarist, Keith Richards said “there’s some new music on its way” on his Instagram post in January.
This would not be the first time The Beatles and The Rolling Stones have crossed over. The Stones’ first hit record was actually a cover of the Beatles song “I Wanna Be Your Man”.
Lennon and McCartney later sang backing vocals on the Stones’ song “We Love You”.
The new Stones record is also reportedly set to include drumming parts from late drummer Charlie Watts, who died in 2021 aged 80.
Richards appeared to confirm in a Los Angeles Times interview that Watts had recorded parts on the record before he died, saying “You haven’t heard the last of Charlie Watts.”
Watts has now been replaced by the band’s long-term collaborator Steve Jordan.
