Keith Richards has confirmed that The Rolling Stones will record a new record. He spoke to The Quietus and said: "Yes! We must go in the studio! I was at a meeting with the lads three or four days ago where everybody said, 'Yes! We must go in the studio! Where or when I can’t yet say but in the near future.
