By |

Mick Jagger will take a brief break from the Rolling Stones (who celebrate their fortieth anniversary next year) to release his fourth solo album this fall.

Slated for a November release, the record will be Jagger's first solo effort since 1993's Rick Rubin-produced Wandering Spirit, and will feature guest appearances by Lenny Kravitz, Joe Perry, Bono, Wyclef Jean, Pete Townshend and Matchbox Twenty's Rob Thomas. Five of the tracks on the album were produced by the singer.

Jagger previously released She's the Boss (1985) and Primative Cool (1987) without his fellow Stones. As for the band, there is no official word on their follow-up to 1999's Bridges to Babylon.
