Even though the Rolling Stones’ Zip Code tour is drawing to a close, Keith Richards is giving fans across the globe a reason to celebrate: the Glimmer Twin is releasing his first solo LP since 1992’s Main Offender. Richard will release Crosseyed Heart mid-September, with the first single, “Trouble,” dropping July 17.

The majority of the solo LP was written and produced by Richards and drummer Steve Jordan. Well-known guitarist Waddy Wachtel and Rolling Stones’ backup singer Bernard Fowler also added their talents to the record. Others featured include keyboardist Ivan Neville and singer Sarah Dash.

There are also special appearances from Norah Jones on the duet “Illusion” and Spooner Oldham on “Lovers Plea.” According to Richards, the album doesn’t hew to any one genre – it rocks out on every genre from reggae to blues to country.
