Self-titled album in stores September 20, 2011.
Mick Jagger has teamed up with Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart,
soul singer Joss Stone, Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack composer
A.R.Rahman and reggae star Damian Marley to form a band cooperative
project called SuperHeavy. This diverse and eclectic line up who share
eleven Grammy Awards between them, have been recording together in
various studios around the world, with the majority of the tracks on the
project laid down over three weeks in Los Angeles earlier this year.
The album will be unveiled in September and tracks include the first
single ‘Miracle Worker’, plus ‘One Day One Night’, ‘Energy’,
‘Unbelievable,’ ‘SuperHeavy,’ I Can’t Take It No More,’ ‘You’re Never
Gonna Change’ and ‘I Don’t Mind.’
   

It’s little wonder
that Stewart refers to SuperHeavy as, “A mad alchemist type experiment”.
Fusing the talents of one of the greatest front-men of all time, a two
time Academy award winning Indian composer, a soul vocal prodigy, a
three time Grammy winning reggae star, and one of the most sought after
producers in the world, you would expect the explosive results to defy
categorisation.

SuperHeavy came together after Jagger and Stewart considered what a
band comprising of musicians from different genres would sound like.
Jagger explains, “Dave really wanted to make a record with a different
group of musicians, in other words, with different backgrounds of music.
Instead of everyone being a rock musician, or basically a blues
musician, or some other genre, he wanted to get as many genres together
that would fit. I said it sounds like a good idea, I never thought it
would actually happen.”

  Despite their
disparate backgrounds, they instantly connected and hit the ground
running, writing twenty-two songs in the first six days. Stone was
thrilled with the results, “That’s what you need, all these opinionated
people who have been brilliant in their own field, shove them together
and see what comes out. It’s really unexpected, it’s mind blowing” she
enthuses. Similarly enthused was Rahman, “The first day I was in a daze
thinking, ‘What am I doing? What’s my role?’ and then slowly we started
writing with each other, and it was great. It took me way back to my
high school days when I was playing in a rock band, but this one was a
real one!” Jagger says of the writing process, “We ran the gamut of all
our different styles mixed up, so we got Joss singing, Damian doing
toasting, and me singing different styles.”

 However, despite the
free flow of creative juices and the easy rapport they established,
getting the band together in one place became very difficult, as Stewart
explains, “It’s the most complicated record ever made. Imagine, some of
it’s recorded in LA, some of it’s recorded in the South of France, some
of it’s recorded off the coast of Cyprus, some of it’s recorded in
Turkey, some of it’s recorded in Miami, some of it’s recorded in the
Caribbean, and some of it’s recorded in Chennai, in India.”

The project needed a
name. Marley had been riffing the term “SuperHeavy”, inspired by
Muhammad Ali being the super heavy weight champion of the world and the
phrase became the band’s catchphrase, “It was Mick who said, ‘Why don’t
we call it SuperHeavy?”, recalls Stewart, “We all thought about it for
ages and then it sort of stuck.”

SuperHeavy
is a new and spontaneous way of working for all the collaborators as
Jagger explains, “I said to Dave, normally [with the Stones] we’d always
have written songs before we go into the studio, but the jam sessions
resulted in some great work believes Stone, “It felt better when we were
just jamming, that way we made it up as we went along and it was
easy.”

Back to that
alchemical experiment, Jagger, Stewart, Marley, Rahman and Stone appear
to have created a new genre. It’s a new kind of music, it’s a new genre,
one that cannot be placed” says Stone. Yet, Jagger is keen to point out
the music is accessible, “It’s very approachable. If you’re a Rolling
Stones fan there’s definitely stuff you can relate to. Other stuff that
you can’t relate to so much, maybe if you listen you’ll enjoy it.”

   

As far as the future
of SuperHeavy goes, “We haven’t planned to do a tour or anything, but if
people really like it maybe we will. We’d love to get out and play some
of it live,” says Jagger humbly. “As soon as we started playing
together in the studio it gelled, and all these different styles didn’t
seem to be a problem to make them fit together… I hope people will
like it….”
