It’s been almost two decades since The Rolling Stones’ last album saw the light of day, and they’re finally getting ready for a comeback! The legendary rockers officially announced the release of their next album Hackney Diamonds and shared its lead single “Angry” with their loyal fans.

The Rolling Stones initially teased their next album by publishing a mysterious ad in a local Hackney newspaper. They decided to make things official by hosting a livestream event from the Hackney Empire Theatre in London, where they shared all the crucial info about their next studio album.

They also shared a music video for the album’s lead single “Angry”, starring the Euphoria actress Sydney Sweeney. The video shows her being driven all around Los Angeles in a red convertible and noticing huge billboards of The Rolling Stones everywhere she goes.

“Angry” will be one of 12 tracks featured on Hackney Diamonds, along with several high-profile collaborations, including “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” ft. Lady Gaga, and Stevie Wonder, and “Bite My Head Off” with Paul McCartney on bass guitar.

Hackney Diamonds will be released on October 20, and it will mark the band’s last album to feature the late drummer Charlie Watts. It will also be their first LP of the original material since A Bigger Bang in 2005.
