Earlier this month, Rolling Stones headlined both weekends of Desert Trip in Indio, California. Toward the end of their set on the second weekend, Mick's voice noticeably cracked as he spoke between songs.
The band will release their forthcoming 23rd British and 25th American studio album, "Blue & Lonesome", on December 2. It will be their first studio release in more than a decade since 2005's "A Bigger Bang".
