During an interview with BBC 6 radio, Richards, 66, says:

    "There are gems in the vault, but more interesting to me is that everybody's ready to go out there again. Who said it should stop and who said when? That's what we want to find out. We'll know when it really comes to an end, with a crashing halt."

As for the new tracks, he adds:

    "After these many years working together, we have a lot of unfinished stuff to work on that we had to leave off the last album. And knowing Mick, as I do, he's a very prolific writer. And I have ideas, and we'll put them together in December or January, something like that ... We're looking forward to working."

Richards has also just released a new memoir called Life in which he discusses his past drug addiction and his tumultuous relationship with bandmate Mick Jagger.

The Rolling Stones plan to go on tour next year.
