Richards (left) will release his solo album Crosseyed Heart in September, after more than two decades. This is Richards’ third solo album and first since 1992’s Main Offender. The album features 15 songs that the 71-year-old mostly co-wrote with drummer and co-producer Steve Jordan. The first single, Trouble, will release next week, reported Aceshowbiz.
Richards has collaborated with several artists for the album, including Norah Jones on a song titled Illusion, Spooner Oldham on Lovers Plea, multiinstrumentalist Larry Campbell on Robbed Blind and Aaron Neville on Nothing on Me. Guitarist Waddy Wachtel, keyboardist Ivan Neville and background singer Sarah Dash have also joined hands with the rock legend.
“I had a ball making this new record and working with Steve Jordan and Waddy Wachtel again. There’s nothing like walking into a studio and having absolutely no idea what you are going to come out with on the other end,” said Richards.
