Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards said on Thursday he is releasing his first solo album in more than 20 years.

Richards and drummer Steve Jordan wrote and produced the majority of Crosseyed Heart together. 

Richards, 71, plays electric and acoustic guitars, bass, and piano and sings vocals on the 15-track album. 

Keyboardist Ivan Neville and singer Sarah Dash also appear on Crosseyed Heart. The album also features collaborations with Norah Jones on "Illusion," Spooner Oldham on "Lovers Plea," Larry Campbell on "Robbed Blind" and Aaron Neville on "Nothing on Me."

Richards said in a statement. "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."

“Crosseyed Heart,” will feature rock, reggae and country songs, will be released on Sept. 18. 

Richards said on his website. "Trouble," the first single, will be released on July 17.
