Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has said that new music from the veteran band is on the way following last year's single Living in a Ghost Town.

In his latest in-the-studio update posted online, he said "About last night! New music on the horizon!"

Richards (77) recently released a new video for his 1992 track Hate It When You Leave, which featured on his solo album Main Offender.

Last September, front man Mick Jagger (77) said that the band wanted to record more music but would only do so "in safe circumstances".

Jagger confirmed that he was recording several other tracks from the same sessions that yielded Ghost Town, the video for which featured Normal People star Paul Mescal.

Earlier this year, the band, who played Croke Park in May, 2018, announced that they would be launching their own branded chocolate bar later this month.
