CNN reports they received an email from a rep for the Stones stating Sir Paul plays bass “on just one RS track.” While Ringo Starr was also reported as appearing on the album, the Stones rep said he is not on the track with McCartney. The rep didn’t detail whether Starr is on the album elsewhere.

Rumors of the former Beatles appearing on the new Stones album came via VarietyThe outlet cited “multiple sources” on the matter and said the album is going to be produced by Andrew Watt. He has produced a number of pop stars but has also produced Ozzy Osbourne’s last two albums.

He told The Sun, “We are recording the new album now and we are going to LA in a few weeks to carry it on and finish it off. Charlie is on some of the tracks and drummer Steve Jordan.”

Watts, of course, died in August 2021 at age 80.
