Mick Jagger’s new band Super Heavy will release their first musical contribution September 20.
The members of Super Heavy include, Joss Stone, Damian Marley, Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart and composer AR Rahman. Although the first project does not currently have a title, the Super Heavy camp has confirmed that the band’s first single will be called “Miracle Worker”.
Jagger told The Hollywood Reporter that the project had initially started with “ideas, a few guitar riffs and a few snippets of lyrics”, adding: “It’s not my usual sort of way of working. You always want to leave some room for improvisation, but you need to have something, some songs, when you walk into the studio.It evolved very quickly. We sat around with our little writing pads. We did do a lot of jams but it’s all coherent and arranged. We just wrote them quickly.”
Jagger had previously compared Super Heavy to The Rolling Stones, claiming: “If you’re a Rolling Stones fan there’s definitely stuff you can relate to. Other stuff that you can’t relate to so much, maybe if you listen you’ll enjoy it. I don’t think it’s so far off the beaten track that you can’t understand it.”
