In 2021 it was announced that drummer Steve Jordan would be taking over for the late Charlie Watts. “Working with Steve Jordan somehow brought new energy and joy to life,” guitarist Keith Richards told the German news agency in the spring of 2022. They now want to see “what we can achieve with the new lineup. There is a lot in the works.”
