“This Wednesday Sept 6th 2023 – times below,” he added. “New album, new music, new era. Streaming globally on Stones YouTube…”
More details about their upcoming album will reportedly be revealed during an event in East London’s Hackney district on Wednesday. “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon will interview Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood live in London about their project, the AP noted.
“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,” the Rolling Stones shared in a statement.
The “Hackney Diamonds” announcement came after days of cryptic posts on the band’s X account that started on August 29 with a post that read, “Hello world. Hackney Diamonds.com.”
It included four photos of the bands signature lips and tongue graphic being displayed on various buildings and landmarks in major cities like New York, London, and Paris, the AP noted.

In numerous follow-up posts, fans were told, “Sorry, don’t get angry with me,” and offered a link where one can catch a peek at one of the new songs.
After fans were greeted with errors on the page, the band replied later and said it was fixed. Finally, the band shard several posts with the “Don’t Get Angry With Me” sticker and bumper sticker being shown on various items and cars.
It will also be the iconic band’s first album since the death of drummer Charlie Watts in 2021. Music that they worked on before his death will appear on the new album, CNN noted.
