Mick Jagger Thinks Rolling Stones Fans Will ‘Relate’ to His New Band, SuperHeavy
Mick Jagger says there is a wide mix of music on the upcoming debut by SuperHeavy, his new supergroup with singer/guitarist Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, plus singers Joss Stone and Damian Marley and composer AR Rahman.
“It’s very approachable,” Jagger says. “If you’re a Rolling Stones fan, there’s definitely stuff you can relate to.”
Jagger admits not everything on the SuperHeavy’s self-titled debut — due Sept. 19 — will be relatable, but “maybe if you listen, you’ll enjoy it.”
What attracted Jagger to the project in the first place was Stewart’s idea “to make a record with a different group of musicians, in other words, with different backgrounds of music.”
Jagger adds, “Instead of everyone being a rock musician, or basically a blues musician, or some other genre, he wanted to get as many genres together that would fit. I said it sounds like a good idea. For me, working with four other vocalists was interesting. I realized we all had a part to play.”
