Earlier this month, Keith Richards announced his first solo album in more than two decades — the long-awaited followup to 1992’s Main Offender. Crosseyed Heart is due Friday September 18, and ahead of that we have the lead single, Trouble, which will be released tomorrow.
Keith’s collaborators on the new disc include Norah Jones and members of his side outfit, The X-Pensive Winos. He wrote and produced most of the tracks with drummer Steve Jordan, and guitarist Waddy Wachtel and Stones backup vocalist Bernard Fowler were also on board for the project.
Keith plays electric and acoustic guitars, piano and bass on Crosseyed Heart, which he describes as “a musical journey that takes in reggae, rock, country and the blues.”
As for that other band of which Keith is a part, he’s looking forward to hitting the studio for a followup to the Stones’ 2005 album A Bigger Bang. “We’re talking about doing some recording after this tour, but there’s nothing definite. We just threw out the idea. I’d like to get the boys back in the studio again, yeah. Anything can happen,” he said.
Love, Dr. Scott James
