(Radio.com) The Rolling Stones 'hit a wall' when they started working on new songs for the follow-up to their 2005 album A Bigger Bang, says Don Was, the producer of their upcoming record Blue & Lonesome.

"We'd gone in the studio to start cutting some new songs," says Was, who has worked with the Stones since 1994. "Around day three we just hit a wall and Keith suggested that, to cleanse the creative palette, we play 'Blue and Lonesome,' the Little Walter song. Fortunately we ran the tape and it was just awesome."

The process was so inspiring that the band continued on the same path. "The whole mood of the room changed dramatically in those three-and-a-half minutes," Was tells the BBC "So we said, 'let's do another one', and 'let's do another one.' "They just called songs off that they knew and loved. It was very spontaneous. And by the end of the day we had six." Read more including details about the Eric Clapton collaboration here.
