Rolling Stones and Beatles to Come Together in the Studio?
Surviving Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reportedly recorded with The Rolling Stones for a future record, Variety reports.
The unnamed record will be produced by 2021 Grammy producer of the year Andrew Watt. McCartney is said to have contributed bass parts to a track, and Starr “is also slated to play on the yet-to-be-announced album.” said the report. McCartney was reportedly with the Stones for a recording session last week in Los Angeles. The album is also “Nearing the mixing stage.”
Front man Mick Jagger said in 2021 that the group has “a lot of tracks done,” and guitarist Keith Richards said in a New Year’s Instagram post last month that “There’s some new music on its way.”
McCartney and Watt have worked together in the past. In a 2021 interview, the icon talked of meeting with the producer. “I went around for a cup of tea, and of course we ended up making a track,” said McCartney. More recently, he was asked in a Q&A posted on his official website what he was looking forward to in 2023. Said the Beatle: “I’ve been recording with a couple of people, so I’m looking forward to doing even more. I’ve started working with this producer called Andrew Watt, and he’s very interesting — we’ve had some fun.
