Keith Richards to release new solo album "Crosseyed Heart"

Keith Richards proves he is basically unstoppable. The Rolling Stones guitarist confirmed he is set to release his first solo album in 23 years, on September 18. His new album "Crosseyed Heart" will be his first solo album since 1992's "Main Offender".

"Crosseyed Heart" will be a 15-track LP featuring Richards' take on reggae, honky-tonk, blues, and rock. Special guests confirmed include jazz singer Norah Jones, who co-wrote the ballad “Illusion,” and Aaron Neville, who provides backing vocals on the track “Nothing on Me.”

Richards wrote and produced most of the songs with longtime collaborator, co-producer and drummer Steve Jordan; Waddy Wachtel joined in the studio as well as other members of Richards's backing band the X-pensive Winos.

Via a press release Richards said:

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're going to come out with on the other end. If you're looking for "Trouble" you've come to the right place.

“Trouble” happens to be the first cut from the forthcoming album and is set to drop July 17.
