Keith Richards has been working on and off on new music for a while now, but don't expect him to ever release a blues album.
Speaking in the Ask Keith section of his website he says, "I ain't up to it and I would only be copying other cats. I ain't gonna go back and be Robert Johnson or Blind Lemon Jefferson." He says that music is all part of what he does, but if he has his druthers he'd rather "play with other cats."
Richards and The Rolling Stones are currently rehearsing in Paris for their tour that starts February 21st in Abu Dhabi.
