Mick Jagger's Supergroup to Release Album in September
Earlier in May, the Rolling Stones frontman partnered with Joss Stone, Damian Marley, Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart and composer A.R. Rahman to create a supergroup called SuperHeavy.
At the time, it was reported that they had finished an album and were trying to make a deal with a major label. That label has turned out to be Universal Music, who will release the record in September.
The musicians recorded in various studios around the world, including in France, Cyprus, Miami and India. Within six days together, they wrote 22 songs for the album.
SuperHeavy, a name inspired by Muhammad Ali, came together after Jagger and Stewart wondered how a band with musicians from different backgrounds would sound. The duo, who produced the record, had previously worked together for the soundtrack to 2004’s Alfie.
The quintet will be recording for a video for their first single, “Miracle Worker.”
