The British guitarist will debut his third album Crosseyed Heart in September (15), almost a quarter of a century after his last solo record, Main Offender, was released in 1992.

Richards, who is currently wrapping up the Stones' Zip Code tour in North America, wrote most of the songs on the album with longtime collaborator Steve Jordan and X-Pensive Winos guitarist Waddy Wachtel, and the project's first single, Trouble, hits the Internet on 17 July (15). It features drummer Jordan, Wachtel and Bernard Fowler on back-up vocals.

Richards says, "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."

The album also features a duet with Norah Jones on the soulful ballad Illusion, which she co-wrote. Guests also include Aaron and Ivan Neville, Spooner Oldham, singer Sarah Dash and late Stones saxophonist Bobby Keys, who recorded the tracks Amnesia and Blues In The Morning before his death in December (14).
