Guitarist Ronnie Wood said that “The Rolling Stones” are planning to release a new album possibly this year.

The last released studio album of these British Rockers was in 2005, but Ronnie said that they recorded some new material and some blues covers.

The Rolling Stones, which started as a blues band in 1962, just wrapped up a tour of Latin America with a free show in Cuba on 25 March. The band then headed to London for Monday’s opening of Exhibitionism, a vast exhibition of the group’s history at the Saatchi Gallery.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Wood arrived together at the gallery, but Richards wouldn’t go into any detail on the recent recording sessions. “There’s one coming,” the 72-year-old guitarist said of a new album. “I can’t say no more. My lips are sealed.”

The Stones have released 22 studio albums in Britain and 24 in the United States. A Bigger Bang was the last, and the band toured the album in 2005, 2006 and 2007. They resumed touring in 2012 to mark the band’s 50th anniversary, but have only released a couple of new songs since then.

Finally Wood said “We’re a working band, we’ll be working again before the end of the year.”
