Bill Wyman Releases First Solo Album in Three Decades

Bill Wyman: Back to BasicsIt’s been a while since former bassist for The Rolling Stones released a solo album. About 33 years, really.

The album, which features a stripped-down sound and nods to influences like Leonard Cohen and JJ Cale, came about after Bill Wyman realized he had a cache of unreleased songs, three of which he decided to rework. He then added those to several brand-new pieces to create a full album called Back to Basics.

An autographed edition of the album is available through Proper Music. Back to Basics is also available on a non-autographed CD and as a digital download.
