Mick Jagger is basking in the brotherly love this week.
The Rolling Stones legend has agreed to perform on the forthcoming record from his younger brother, Chris Jagger.
According to NME, Mick confirmed the news on Twitter over the weekend, writing:
Concertina Jack marks the younger Jagger brother’s ninth studio album, and the rocker is celebrating the 40th anniversary of his debut record this year.
Aside from the title track, Mick also appears on another song, which his brother alternately refers to as “Pearl of a Girl” and “Diamonds and Pearls.”
In a post on his official website, where the album is available for purchase, Chris explains that he only realized the anniversary because of the “[brouhaha] revolving around the Rolling Stones and 50 years…”
The 11-track album was recorded in Mick’s home in France because – as Chris explains – “I knew the band would be down there like a shot enjoying the atmosphere and making a good record in the bargain.”
“It’s quite a name to live up to, but then it’s a good benchmark too and many people forget that my brother is a good songwriter above else,” he adds. “I write different songs because we are really quite different personalities.”
Chris released a video for the title track featuring home videos. Check out “Concertina Jack” and let us know what you think in the comments!
