The Paint It Black four-piece have given their tongue and lips logo a blue makeover for a big announcement on 6 October.

The Rolling Stones are reportedly set to release their blues album in December this year.

Long-time producer Don Was, who spoke to French outlet Le Figaro, said: “The album consists of covers of blues songs of Chicago. It was recorded live in the studio in just three days, with the musicians in a circle around the microphones.”

“There was no retouching on the pieces,” he continued. 

“The record sounds very crude, very authentic. It captures the essence of what they are.”

Meanwhile, the Wild Horses four-piece seem to have teased the announcement online, and shared their iconic tongue and lips logo with a blue makeover.

One tweet sees the enigmatic poster on a billboard, with the caption: "COMING OCTOBER 6".

Their latest tweet also sees a video clip tease recording sessions at the British Grove Studios in Chiswick, London.
