The Rolling Stones have gone back to their roots to create an album of blues covers for their next record.

Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood dropped hints on Twitter this weekend while Keith Richards showed off his new Blue guitar picks.

Mick dropped another hint of the Blues album with a tweet saying “Watch this space #Playingtheblues

Earlier this year Ronnie Wood said an in interview “We cut 11 blues in two days. They are extremely great cover versions of Howlin’ Wolf and Little Walter, among other blues people”.

The Rolling Stones most well-known blues song is and centerpiece of ever show is ‘Midnight Rambler’.

When Chuck Leavell spoke with Noise11 in 2014 he referenced the obscure b-sides ‘The Storm’ and ‘Fancy Man Blues’. “The blues thing, are you kidding me? Would that be so cool to do blues covers of songs that they’ve written. I think it would be brilliant but its not my call,” Chuck said.

On the last studio album ‘A Bigger Bang’ they performed the blues song ‘Back Of My Hand’.

‘Emotional Rescue’ featured ‘Down In The Hole’.

In the 60s The Stones would often include blues songs on various albums including ‘Stray Cat Blues’ from Beggars Banquet, ‘Love In Vain’ from Let It Bleed and ‘Little Red Rooster’ was even a hit single in 1964.

The Rolling Stones will resurrect again for the Desert Trip concert at Indio California October 7 and 14. The Stones will appear in a bill with Bob Dylan. Paul McCartney and Neil Young will play the Saturday night shows and Roger Waters and The Who will perform on the Sunday nights.
