The post The Rolling Stones Tease New Album Hackney Diamonds with Clip of Song Called “Angry” appeared first on Consequence.
The Rolling Stones are finally ready to announce the new album they’ve been teasing for years. According to social media posts from the band, more information about the record — which appears to be titled Hackney Diamonds — will be announced on September 6th. In anticipation, a brief snippet of a song called “Angry” is available online now.
“A new Stones era Worldwide September 6th,” The Rolling Stones tweeted this week. The post links to a Hackney Diamonds website, which doesn’t offer much besides a countdown to September 6th and an invitation to join their mailing list.
Meanwhile, another recent tweet links to dontgetangrywithme.com, which houses a 16-second clip of a new song called “Angry.” That is, if you can get the website to work. As Louder Sound points out, the website has had some trouble loading the teaser. Often times, after several minutes of preparing the clip, it will ultimately show an error message and ask visitors to refresh the site and try again. Many fans have pointed out the issue to The Rolling Stones, whose social media manager has cheekily opted to respond to each complaint with “Don’t get angry with me” rather than offering any tech assistance. Perhaps this was the plan all along?
Hackney Diamonds has been called a tribute to late Stones drummer Charlie Watts, who passed away in 2021. It was produced by Andrew Watt and will feature contributions from Watts, as well as former bassist Bill Wyman and surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. The record marks The Rolling Stones’ first album of original material since 2005’s A Bigger Bang, while they released the blues covers album Blue & Lonesome in 2016.
