During the past few days photos of the Rolling Stones leaving a Paris recording studio have popped up, and Mick Jagger has confirmed the studio sessions. The Rolling Stones have not announced why they were in the recording studio.

On August 23, 2012, this message was posted on the Rolling Stones' official Facebook page and Jagger's official Twitter account: "Had fun in the Paris studio this week!" The message had an accompanying photo of  Sir Mick holding a guitar in a room with several guitars.
