Keith Richards Streams Bluesy New Song 'Substantial Damage'

(Radio.com) On September 18, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards will release his first solo album in 23 years, titled Crosseyed Heart and Richards has shared a sampling from the album in the form of track "Substantial Damage."

At first listen, the song rugged blues groove is loose and sloppy enough to recall 90's indie rock, but also displaying Richard's trademark chops. Fans of the Black Keys, Jon Spencer, and, of course, Richards' main band should all take note.

The record will feature a number of special guests, including Norah Jones and Aaron Neville, and will find the guitar legend trying his hand at reggae, country, rock, and blues.

According to Rolling Stone, the idea of a solo tour is something that Richards is "kicking around," but nothing is actually planned out yet and it remains to be seen whether that will actually materialize.

At the moment, I'm just getting my head into the Stones, and I haven't really thought about what I'm going to do afterwards," Richards said to RS. "But usually if I put a record out, I do some road work. So, it's possible." Stream the song here.
