Blue and Lonesome by the Rolling Stones

The latest album by the Rolling Stones “Blue and Lonesome” is released on 2 December 2016. It is The Rolling Stone’s 23rd British and 25th American studio album and is entirely blues-based, consisting of covers of legendary blues artists such as Howlin’ Wolf, Memphis Slim, Willie Dixon, Buddy Johnson, Magic Sam and Little Walter.

It is their first studio release since 2005’s A Bigger Bang and is the band’s first album to feature only cover songs. “Just Your Fool”, a Little Walter cover, is the first single from the album.
