As tickets go on sale for 'Exhibitionism', the Rolling Stones' cleverly titled 2016 exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London, the legendary band's guitarist Keith Richards has taken the opportunity to announce his first solo album since 1992.

Keith Richards on red carpet for Saturday Night LiveKeith Richards' new album is coming in September

'Crosseyed Heart', Richards' third solo effort, follows 'Talk Is Cheap' (1988) and 'Main Offender' (1992). It's due out September 18 on Republic Records, reports Billboard.

In a press release, Richards said, "I had a ball making this new record and working with Steve Jordan and Waddy Wachtel again.

"There's nothing like walking into a studio and having absolutely no idea what you're going to come out with on the other end. If you're looking for 'Trouble,' you've come to the right place."

'Trouble' is the name of the first single from the new album, announced via Richards' Twitter for release in just a few days' time.

Richards provides vocals, guitar, piano and bass for 'Crosseyed Heart', and co-wrote most of the new record's songs with producer Steve Jordan. There's also a duet with Norah Jones called 'Illusion', which the singer-songwriter co-wrote. Guitarist Waddy Wachtel, keyboardist-vocalist Ivan Neville and saxophonist Bobby Keys also feature among the contributors.
