THE ROLLING STONES announced their new album, Hackney Diamonds, and premiered the video for its first single, the hard-rocking “Angry,” at a press conference Wednesday in East London. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood sat down with Jimmy Fallon to talk about the making of their upcoming LP, their 24th, which is due Oct. 20.
It’s the band’s first full album of original music since 2005’s A Bigger Bang, and their first since the death of drummer Charlie Watts. Jagger explained that the title, Hackney Diamonds, is slang for what happens to windshields when someone gets rowdy on a night out.
“We wouldn’t be putting this out now if we didn’t really like it,” Jagger said. “We didn’t want to make just any record and put it out. So we wanted to make a record. Before we went in, we said we all want to make a record that we really love, ourselves. People may like it, other people may not. But we must say this, we are quite pleased with it. … We hope you’ll like it.”
