Mick Jagger recently discussed how Lady Gaga got involved in the Rolling Stones’ upcoming album, ‘Hackney Diamonds,’ while sitting down with Rolling Stone magazine.
Apparently, Gaga’s involvement was spontaneous, as she happened to be recording at the same studio. So, Jagger recalled how, during one random session, the singer asked if she could pop in:
“She just walked in, in front of me, and me, and she just curled up in a ball in front of me on the floor. And then someone gave her a mic, and she started singing oohs and ahs.”
Then, Jagger’s bandmate, Ronnie Wood, cut in and also recalled how they initially decided to recruit Gaga:
“She was sitting there on the floor just digging it and singing along, and Mick said, ‘Well, come on in. Stand up. Let’s make a thing of this then. Let’s do it properly.'”
Gaga will feature on the track, ‘Sweet Sounds of Heaven,’ and she’s not the only one to be working with the Rolling Stones on ‘Hackney Diamonds,’ [which will be set for release on October 20].
The name behind the producer’s seat is Andrew Watt, who’d worked with Ozzy Osbourne, Post Malone, and Iggy Pop in the past. Rock n’ roll royalty such as Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones’ original bassist Bill Wyman, and Elton John will also appear on different tracks.
