The band, which is currently comprised of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood after Charlie Watts died in 2021, scored their first top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart in 1964 with 12 x 5. In total, The Stones claimed 13 top 10 albums in the ’60s, 12 in the ‘70s, six in the ‘80s, three in the ‘90s, two in the 2000s, one in the 2010s and now one in the 2020s.

Hackney Diamonds also extended the rock band’s record as the artist with the most top 10 albums of all time, with a total of 38. Barbra Streisand follows with 34, while The Beatles and Frank Sinatra are tied for third, with 32 each.

Earlier this month, The Rolling Stones celebrated the release of Hackney Diamonds with an intimate club performance in New York City. The band performed seven songs, including the Lady Gaga-featured “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” off the new album, as stars like Daniel Craig, Chris Rock and Mary-Kate Olsen cheered on.

It’s the band’s first album of original music since 2005’s A Bigger Bang, which debuted, and peaked, at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. They also released the blues covers album, Blue & Lonesome, in 2016, which debuted at No. 4 on the chart.

Hackney Diamonds features 12 tracks, including two of which Watts performs on, “Mess It Up” and “Live by the Sword,” as well as original member Bill Wyman, who also plays on “Live by the Sword.”
