Sir Mick added there are 12 tracks on the album and while most featured Jordan, there are two tracks recorded in 2019 with Charlie.
Speaking on stage, Keith reflected on Charlie’s passing, saying: ‘Ever since Charlie has been gone it’s different, he’s number four.’
The guitarist continued: ‘He’s missing, of course he’s missed incredibly, but thanks to Charlie we have Steve Jordan who was his recommendation if anything should happen to him.
‘He’s been a friend of ours so he was a natural progression, it would have been a lot harder without Charlie’s blessing.’
On the song Live By The Sword the trio are backed by both Charlie and former bassist Bill Wyman, reuniting the original rhythm section of The Rolling Stones. The second song featuring Charlie is named Mess It Up.

Charlie passed away aged 80 in August 2021, surrounded by his family in hospital – weeks after he pulled out of US tour to recover from emergency heart surgery.
The London-born drummer joined the then-fledgling band in 1963 after meeting Mick, Keith and Brian Jones while playing in rhythm and blues clubs.
Along with Mick and Keith, he featured on every one of the band’s studio albums. He was widely regarded as one of the greatest drummers of all time
Frontman Sir Mick announced the band will release a new single called Angry and an accompanying video.
Of their new song’s he explained: ‘I don’t want to be big-headed but we wouldn’t have put this album out if we hadn’t really liked it.’

The Paint It Black rockers used the publicity gimmick to tell fans they are calling their new record Hackney Diamonds – with the announcement disguised as an advert for a fictional glass company of the same name placed in London’s Hackney Gazette paper.
One fan who spotted it shared the ad on X, saying: ‘Anyone see this? An ad ran in Hackney Gazette for a company called ‘Hackney Diamonds’ teasing Rolling Stones song titles.
‘Their est. date is 1962, same year Stones formed. Website seems to be run by Universal Music, the Stones’ label.
‘A clue their long-awaited new LP is on its way.’
Included in the Hackney Gazette ad was a miniscule version of the Stones’ iconic tongue logo – which they used to dot the ‘i’ in the brand name Diamonds.
The advert’s blurb also contained a reference to the Stones’ 1965 hit ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’, as well as nods to the tracks ‘Gimme Shelter’ and ‘Shattered’.
The font used for ‘Hackney Diamonds’ is also the same as the one used on the Stones’ album cover for 1978’s ‘Some Girls’.
It added the ‘glass company’ was ‘established in 1962’ in reference to the year the Stones formed,
The advert was printed on page three of the paper on August 21 and included a phone number.
When called, a recorded message plays that appears to announce the record or a single from it is coming out in September.
It says: ‘Welcome to Hackney Diamonds, specialists in glass repair.
‘Don’t get angry, get it fixed – opening early September, Mare Street, E8.’

Hackney Diamonds will be the Stones’ 31st studio album and the first without their drummer Charlie Watts, who died aged 80 in August 2021.
