A representative for The Rolling Stones emailed CNN revealing that Paul McCartney plays bass “on just one Rolling Stones track.”
More, the representative also denied reports that The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr makes an appearance on the LP, saying the recording featured “no Ringo Starr at all.”
The Rolling Stones’ upcoming album will be the first since their drummer, Charlie Watts, died in 2021.
According to Variety, the 80-year-old McCartney recorded bass parts during recording sessions that took place in Los Angeles in recent weeks. The album, which is being helmed by 2021 Grammy “Producer Of The Year” Andrew Watt, is reportedly getting close to the mixing phase.
Last month, guitarist Keith Richards shared with fans in an Instagram video that “there’s some new music on its way.”
THE ROLLING STONES‘ new LP will likely include several songs Watts recorded prior to his death.
“Let me put it this way,” Richards told the Los Angeles Times in 2021. “You haven’t heard the last of Charlie Watts.”
