'Rolling Stones 'Hackney Diamonds' Album: Unveiling Further Details'

The Rolling Stones have registered 12 new song titles with ASCAP, giving hints about their upcoming album 'Hackney Diamonds'.

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) has recently registered 12 song titles credited to Michael Philip Jagger and Keith Richards, with three additional credits to Andrew Watt. This provides further insight into the content of the upcoming Rolling Stones album, 'Hackney Diamonds'.

ASCAP is an organization responsible for registering songs and collecting revenue for public performances from various sources such as venues, broadcasters, and streaming services.

The 12 song titles were shared on the Stones' Facebook fan page, SHIDOOBEE with StonesDoug, and were also discussed on the Stones Podcast Hang Fire: A Rolling Stones Podcast on YouTube, hosted by Justin Sosa.

Interestingly, an advertisement appeared in the local Hackney Gazette newspaper earlier in the week, promoting a glass repair specialist called Hackney Diamonds. The ad prominently featured The Stones' iconic tongue logo and included the phrase, "Our friendly team promises you satisfaction. When you say gimme shelter we'll fix your shattered windows."

The inclusion of song references like 'Satisfaction', 'Gimme Shelter', and 'Shattered' in the ad suggests a connection to the Rolling Stones' music. Additionally, the ad encourages readers to sign up for a mailing list, with the confirmation email coming from the Stones' record label, Universal / Polydor, and featuring the message, "don't get angry, get it fixed." Notably, one of the recently registered songs with ASCAP is titled 'Angry', as pointed out by Justin Sosa on the Hang Fire podcast.

The ad also mentions that Hackney Diamonds will be opening in September 2023, indicating that an official announcement may be imminent. Noise11 has received information that an Australian television news show is scheduled to travel to London in September for a Rolling Stones event.

The email received from Universal regarding Hackney Diamonds states, "OPENING EARLY SEPTEMBER 2023. MARE STREET LONDON E8." Justin Sosa suggests that this could be a potential venue for a press conference, as there is a venue on Mare Street in Hackney.

Producer Andrew Watt, who is credited on three of the registered songs ('Angry', 'Depending On You', and 'Get Close'), has also worked with notable artists such as Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Post Malone, The Kid Laroi, and Ed Sheeran, as well as legendary acts like Elton John, Eddie Vedder, Ozzy Osbourne, and Iggy Pop. Watt won the Grammy Award for Producer of the Year in 2021. His involvement with The Stones indicates a desire for a contemporary production on the new album. It remains unclear whether Watt only worked on these three songs or the entire album. The Rolling Stones have collaborated with producer Don Was since their 1994 album 'Voodoo Lounge' up until their most recent release, 'Living In A Ghost Town' in 2020.
