Blue & Lonesome is a covers album by the Rolling Stones-their 23rd British and 25th American studio album-released on 2 December 2016. It is the band's first album to feature only cover songs, and their first studio release since 2005's A Bigger Bang, with its eleven-year gap being the longest between two albums from the band.

Blue & Lonesome was bashed out in three days, and for the first time in eons, the Stones sound like a band playing together in the same room rather than one that travels on separate jets. Jagger is, naturally the star of the show-but not in his usual vampish ways.
Listening to ‘From The Playground’, it’s Blayze’s remarkable voice that you can’t fail to notice. If there is a fault with The High And Lonesome, it’s Blazye’s tendency to rely too much on the mid-paced ballad. Only really ‘Breaking Down The Wall’ and ‘Riders On The Line’ raise the tempo somewhat, with the former being distinguished by some excellent Celtic-flavoured fiddle.
The Rolling Stones' Blue and Lonesome: the classic songs they're covering. Their second thought might be that Blue & Lonesome sounds surprisingly like Mick Jagger’s show, which rather goes against the commonly held belief that Keith Richards is the band’s R&B heart and Jagger is a fashion-conscious dilettante who’d have the Stones recording tropical house with Kungs and Seeb if he thought it would make them seem relevant.
The freakiest thing about Blue & Lonesome is the extent to which Jagger and Richards agree on i. The project might, from the outside, seem more like a Richards thing, the kind of retro move he’d favor, while the Jagger of fans’ imaginations would be busy pushing the Stones to work with, say, the Chainsmokers. The frontman says the stereotype isn’t all wrong, but that in this case, we were all equally into it.
That self-conscious analyzation made so many of their records from the mid-'70s onward sound so labored, as they hammered out detail after detail. It's also resulted in some huge gaps between releases. It's been 11 years since their last album, A Bigger Bang - the longest period ever between Rolling Stones records.
