According to a statement released by the band, the album sees the legendary rockers return to their early days when they performed songs by artists like Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Eddie Taylor - whose songs feature on the album.
The rock group teased fans this week on Twitter with a video snippet of them performing a bluesy tune in a studio. Artwork for the album cover showed a blue version of the band's tongue-and-lips logo.
The statement listed the album's tracks as "Just Your Fool", "Commit A Crime", "Blue and Lonesome", "All Of Your Love", "I Gotta Go", "Everybody Knows About My Good Thing", "Ride 'Em On Down", "Hate To See You Go", "Hoo Doo Blues", "Little Rain", "Just Like I Treat You" and "I Can't Quit You Baby". "Blue & Lonesome" will be released on December 2, 2016.
Recorded in three days at London's British Grove Studios Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood are joined by Eric Clapton for two songs on the new album.
The Stones' last studio album was 2005's "A Bigger Bang". They have since gone on tours around the world, putting on a large, free, outdoor concert in Cuba in March.
