The Rolling Stones return on December 12th with Blue and Lonesome, their first full-length in over 10 years. The follow-up to 2005’s A Bigger Bang sees the Stones reworking songs by influential blues artists like Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Little Walter, and Willie Dixon, many of which served as inspiration for the Brits early in their career.

Already we’ve heard the opening track, a reimagining of Little Walter’s “Just Your Fool”; today, they’re broken off another Little Walter cover with “Hate to See You Go”. In his 2010 memoir, Life, Keith Richards called him “one of the best singers of the blues and a blues harp player par excellence. I find it hard to listen to him without awe.”

“His singing was overshadowed by the phenomenal harp, which was based on a lot of Louis Armstrong’s cornet licks,” he added (via Ultimate Classic Rock). “Little Walter would smile in his grave for the way Mick Jagger plays.”

In addition to the LP, the band’s kept pretty busy the last few months with a new live album and concert film, a rarity-packed set at Desert Trip Festival, and even a surprise gig in Las Vegas just for truckers.
