Just in time for the holidays, the Rolling Stones will be putting out their first studio album in more than a decade — and it will be a cover album. Rolling Stone magazine reports that “Blue & Lonesome” is coming out Dec. 2.

“The 12 tracks, recorded in three days at London’s British Grove Studios, all cover songs by classic bluesmen, including Howlin’ Wolf (‘Commit a Crime’), Little Walter (‘I Gotta Go’) and Jimmy Reed (‘Little Rain’),” Rolling Stone reports. “Eric Clapton guests on the group’s cover of Little Johnny Taylor’s ‘Everybody Knows About My Good Thing’ and Otis Rush’s ‘I Can’t Quit You Baby.’ The album doubles as a nod to the band’s formative years, when the band would play covers by their favorite blues artists.”

The band has been teasing the release with some VERY brief video clips. Check it out …
