Iconic English rock band The Rolling Stones are getting back to their roots -- blues music -- and are coming up with a new studio album, 'Blue & Lonesome', scheduled for a December 2 release this year. This is Mick Jagger and Co's first album in 11 years, since their 2005-release 'A Bigger Bang'.

At least 25 music albums over 50 years - that's Rolling Stones for you. In the upcoming album, Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood will be the prominent figures as usual, while the likes of Darryl Jones (bass) and Chuck Leavell and Matt Clifford (keys) make an entry as well.

Eric Clapton, of Tears in Heaven fame, and legendary percussionist Jim Keltner, also feature as guest artists in the album, which are basically covers of iconic numbers. 

Majority of the tracks in the album are a tribute to legendary Blues musician Little Walter, who originally wrote and performed the song Blue & Lonesome in 1959.

The Rolling Stones are currently performing in the 'Desert Trip' music festival in Indio, California, where they are sharing the stage with legendary musicians Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, the Who, Roger Waters and Neil Young.
