The Rolling Stones are about to get rolling on their first original album in 12 years.

During a segment of “Ask Keith Richards” on the YouTube page of the legendary group’s guitarist, Richards was asked if the Stones had been inspired to get back in the studio following their 2016 covers album Blue & Lonesome.

“Yeah, in fact, we are very, very shortly,” he responded. “Cutting some new stuff and considering where to take it next.”

Before Blue & Lonesome, the British band — which formed more than 50 years ago — last released 2005’s A Bigger Bang, their 24th studio album.
