18 years is a long time… longer if you’re a Rolling Stones fan and have been patiently waiting for a new studio album. All those wishes were granted back in September, when the iconic band announced the release of Hackney Diamonds and debuted its rollicking title track ‘Angry’ along with it.


Named for a reference to British slang for smashed windows or bottles, the new 12-track album Hackney Diamonds was announced by Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood, rather fittingly, at the iconic Hackney Empire theatre in East London with a special event hosted by Jimmy Fallon.

Paul has also been busy behind the scenes. To celebrate this blockbuster release, he couldn’t be more delighted to have been asked to work with the band on an incredible project – an exclusive edition of the vinyl and a selection of limited-edition tees in collaboration with the band.

“I consider it an incredible honour to work with Mick, Keith, and Ronnie on this exciting collaboration – as a brand, we’ve always had a close relationship with the music business, and I count The Rolling Stones as one of my all-time musical heroes.” Paul says. “As well as being a fan, I’m also lucky enough to be able to call the band friends. It goes without saying that Hackney Diamonds is a phenomenal album, with a fearless spirit.”

Incorporating the band’s signature colour – red – the vinyl sleeve also features Paul’s distinctive handwriting for the band name and track list on the back. It is available for pre-order through The Rolling Stones official online shop now, and will be on sale from 20th October in our London King’s Cross and Beak Street shops, and Mini Melrose in LA. The vinyl is also coming soon to our Shibuya, Tokyo shop.  

Along with the vinyl, Paul has also been working on a selection of collectable organic cotton tees featuring the exclusive vinyl print as well as a version with a print of the reinterpreted Signature Stripe tongue logo front and centre.

“For this launch, I wanted to create something that stayed true to the vision that the band set out – with a few subtle Paul Smith ‘twists’, as we call them,” Paul explains.

The Rolling Stones x Paul Smith tees are available to shop now. The online pre-order for The Rolling Stones x Paul Smith vinyl is now sold out.
