Mick Jagger says next Rolling Stones album 'sounds pretty good'

Mick Jagger has updated fans on the Rolling Stones' next album, noting that they still need some time to finish the material they've been working on.

“Don’t hold you breath!” he jokingly told the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show when asked about the songs. "We recorded a bunch of tracks at the same time we did ["Living in a Ghost Town"] ... actually I’ve been finishing off the vocals and some other instruments on them, and doing some mixes on them. So I’m working on it."

He added that the band needs to "get together and do a couple more sessions" before it reaches the finish line. "We’re not really gonna get together right now," he said. "But it sounds good, what we’ve already done — [it] sounds pretty good to me."

The frontman was promoting the Rolling Stones' newly released, previously unheard song "Scarlet," a collaboration with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. The track appears on the band's upcoming Goats Head Soup box set, which follows their April single "Living in a Ghost Town."

"My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session," Keith Richards said of "Scarlet" in a statement. "They were just leaving, and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay. We weren’t actually cutting it as a track, it was basically for a demo, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it, but it came out well, with a line up like that, you know, we better use it.‘’

The Deluxe Edition of the box set, out Sept. 4, features two other previously unheard songs, "Criss Cross" and "All the Rage," along with seven instrumentals and alternative mixes.

Rolling Stones Live Albums Ranked

12. 'Live Licks' (2004)

The double-album 'Forty Licks' compilation is an excellent overview of the Rolling Stones. Leave it to the group to exploit it by going out on the road once again to play its classic songs and then release a snoozy live album chronicling the shows. There are no surprises here -- just the hits, performed just as you remember them, with many miles now behind them. Pointless.

11. 'Sticky Fingers Live' (2015)

Before they kicked off their 2015 tour, the Stones played a not-so-secret show for 1,200 fans at a Los Angeles club. The intimate concert included a run-through of the band's classic 1971 album 'Sticky Fingers.' Like most latter-day Stones shows, the performances are professional, spot-on ... and thoroughly lifeless. Stick with the original album, where menace, inspiration and danger loom around every corner.

10. 'Hyde Park Live' (2013)

During their 50th anniversary celebration, the Stones returned to London's Hyde Park to pay tribute to one of their most famous and historic gigs: A free 1969 outing performed just two days after Brian Jones' death that was also Mick Taylor's first show with the band. Also released on DVD, 'Hyde Park Live' pretty much amounts to a greatest-hits concert album by the '10s-era Stones: long on timeless songs, short on inspiration.

9. 'No Security' (1998)

The Stones, aware that fans were getting tired of hearing the same songs again and again on their live albums, loaded 'No Security' with obscurities. Only problem, they're taken from the Bridges to Babylon Tour (not exactly a highlight of the band's career) and include guest spots from the likes of Dave Matthews and jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman. The uninspired track listing feels like barrel-scraping by this point.

8. 'Love You Live' (1977)

Here's where it all started falling apart for the group. Culled from the Stones' soul-draining 1975-76 tour, along with a pair of club shows in Toronto from 1977 (right after Keith Richards' famous bust), 'Love You Live' is a mess. Nobody could agree on the track listing, the performances are languid at best and not one Stone seems to be having a good time. It's no surprise that many of the songs were later overdubbed to make it palatable to fans' ears.

7. 'Still Life' (1982)

The Stones' 1981 tour in support of 'Tattoo You' was one of rock's biggest and most successful at the time. It also marked a comeback of sorts for the band, which had pretty much been coasting in concert for the past decade. 'Still Life' attempts to document and summarize the shows, but with only 10 songs, a predictable track list (current hit "Start Me Up," "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" for the gazillionth time) and no visuals to show what all the excitement was about, it comes off like a shameless cash-grab between studio albums.

6. 'Some Girls: Live in Texas '78' (2011)

Included with the DVD and Blu-ray sets of a concert recorded during the Stones' 1978 tour, this set is heavy on 'Some Girls' tracks, plus the usual smattering of vintage cuts ("Jumpin' Jack Flash") and covers ("Sweet Little Sixteen"). The band sounds more lively than it did during its dismal 1975 tour, but that's not saying much. At least they were working off a stronger album this time, and the best songs here come from that record.

5. 'Flashpoint' (1991)

Recorded during the Stones' 'Steel Wheels' tour in 1989 and 1990, 'Flashpoint' marked a comeback period for the band, which sounded more animated than it had in years, even during the requisite stadium-sized performances of live-album staples "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." Still, at 76 minutes, 'Flashpoint' sags, especially on the two new studio songs tacked on at the end.

4. 'Shine a Light' (2008)

Maybe it was the small club atmosphere. Or maybe it was because Martin Scorsese was filming the whole thing for a concert film. Either way, the Stones make a great showing on this two-LP set, which was recorded over two nights in New York City in 2006. The concerts themselves stayed away from the band's current album, 'A Bigger Bang,' and instead focused on classics and stage obscurities. Not even the superfluous guest spots (from Christina Aguilera, Jack White and others) weigh it down.

3. 'Stripped' (1995)

The Stones' best live album in a quarter-century isn't a total concert experience: The band recorded some songs live in the studio. Pulled together from various 'Voodoo Lounge' tour dates, 'Stripped' is mostly an unplugged record filled with classic songs (nothing from the forgettable 'Voodoo Lounge' shows up). The reworked versions breathe new life into cuts the Stones rarely played onstage -- from 'Let It Bleed' and 'Exile on Main St.' gems to a cover of Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone."

2. 'Got Live If You Want It!' (1966)

You can barely hear the band over the audience's screams, and the sound is the lowest of fidelity. But if there was ever any doubt that the Stones rivaled the Beatles in popularity in the '60s, this early live album, the group's first, proves it. 'Got Live' includes a frenzied mix of originals ("Under My Thumb") and covers ("I've Been Loving You Too Long"). A perfect concert document, before the rot set in.

1. 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!' (1970)

The Stones were the best rock 'n' roll band on the planet when they recorded 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!' in 1969. And they were never better onstage. After this, they'd get complacent, lazy, greedy and boring. But here, they're completely on fire, tearing through a lean set that's raw, thrilling, dangerous ... and everything you need to know about the Stones at the end of the '60s. There are better live albums out there, but none captures its era more ideally than 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!'
