Rolling Stones: Hackney Diamonds
Hackney Diamonds marks The Rolling Stones’ first album of new songs since 2005’s A Bigger Bang. The album’s title is a nod to Hackney, a vibrant London borough that has played a significant role in the band’s history. This locale has served as a wellspring of inspiration for the Stones, and it’s where they laid down some of the tracks for this extraordinary album.

Accompanying the announcement of Hackney Diamonds is the release of its lead single, “Angry.” This blistering track showcases The Rolling Stones at their raw, unapologetic best. With Mick Jagger’s unmistakable swagger and Keith Richards’ iconic guitar riffs, the song immediately transports listeners back to the band’s heyday, all while infusing a modern edge that proves they are as relevant as ever.
