In a new interview with The Times regarding how he’s been keeping busy lately, Ronnie Wood dropped a few interesting tidbits of information: namely, that he and his Faces band mates Rod Stewart and Kenney Jones “have been recording some new Faces music.”

There has not been a new album from Faces since Ooh La La in 1973, which came two years before the band split and Stewart’s solo career took off. Wood promptly joined the Rolling Stones, with whom he’s been a member for years, while Jones joined the Who in place of the departed Keith Moon in 1979.

Also in the Times interview, Wood revealed that he and Mick Jagger had teamed up on “nine new tracks” for the upcoming 40th anniversary reissue of the Stones’ 1981 album Tattoo You. Elsewhere in the interview, Wood also said that the Stones are hoping to continue their No Filter tour, which launched in 2017 and was a highly entertaining show.

Ronnie Wood kept a moderately high profile even during the pandemic, telling the Sun in April 2021 that he underwent a second cancer battle during the downtime:

Said the 73-year-old to the Sun:

“I’ve had cancer two different ways now. I had lung cancer in 2017 and I had small-cell more recently that I fought in the last lockdown,” revealing that, “I came through with the all-clear.”

In June 2020, Ronnie Wood was the focus of a feature interview from Rock Cellar’s Jeff Slate. In their chat, Wood discussed his artistic hobbies outside of his musical experiences, and touched on the “clarity” his time in rehab and sobriety has provided him in the concert setting:

“A new clarity of approach, coming with my sobriety, I think. That’s an amazing plus for me, because I can play anything without a drink or dope. It’s a wonderful feeling to still feel excited about a show, but I don’t have to reach for false stimulants to get me through, you know? That’s a big plus.”
