Rahman says the project began in 2009. “18 months ago, Dave, Mick, Damien, Joss and me experimented at a studio in LA, trying to write songs which had meaning... We had a couple of more sessions after that trying to perfect every song that was written,” he says, adding the album now has 16 to 18 songs and all have a “world sound”.

“Mick and Dave’s incredible musicality and Joss’s soul singing, Damien Marley’s Jamaican influence and philosophies and me Jagger bringing musicality from my world, give the album sounds from world over,” he says. At a press conference in LA, Jagger said, “We entered with just ideas, a few guitar riffs and a few snippets of lyrics... It wasn’t my usual style of working, but the music evolved quickly,” he said.
