MLB, Rolling Stones team up for 30-club limited vinyl release

September 28th, 2023

The Rolling Stones, one of the most acclaimed rock bands of all time, have teamed up with Major League Baseball to create an extremely limited collector's item that all fans of the band and the sport will love.

The Stones and MLB have joined forces to release a limited vinyl edition of the band’s upcoming album, “Hackney Diamonds." The vinyl record, colored in baseball white, is housed in a pocket jacket that features custom art for each of the 30 MLB teams. The front of the cover displays the band’s iconic tongue and lips logo in colors matching each team, and the logo's tongue has been designed to look like a baseball.

Hackney Diamonds X MLB will be released Oct. 20, but you can pre-order it on the Rolling Stones' website.

The Rolling Stones and Major League Baseball have had a long history together. In 1989, the band’s Steel Wheels Tour played half of its North America dates in stadiums that were home to MLB clubs at the time. Eight years later, the band performed at Dodger Stadium, and then began their 2005 tour with two shows at Fenway Park.

“Hackney Diamonds” is the group’s first set of new studio material since 2005 and comes nearly 60 years after their debut album was released in 1964.
