Paul and Ringo with the Rolling Stones?
US Showbiz magazine Variety writes that they have heard from multiple sources that Paul McCartney has recorded bass parts for a forthcoming Rolling Stones project, Andrew Watt producing. Ringo Starr is also slated to play on the yet-to-be-announced album.
Recording sessions took place in Los Angeles in recent weeks and, while it’s unclear which tracks will make the final cut — or whether McCartney and Starr would end up on the same song — the album’s production is nearing the mixing phase. Frontman Mick Jagger said in 2021 that the group has “a lot of tracks done,” and guitarist Keith Richards said in a New Year’s Instagram post last month that “There’s some new music on its way.”
UPDATE: Ringo’s participation has now been denied. A representative for the Stones clarified that McCartney plays bass on one new song, and that Starr has not been collaborating with the band.
Is “I Wanna Be Your Man” going to be on the album?
Right next to “We Love You”, the Stones track that Paul and John sang on in ’67.
