Sir Mick Jagger has teamed up with Joss Stone, Dave Stewart, Damian Marley and A.R. Rahman to form a new supergroup, reports say.

Currently in talks with major labels about a possible deal, the lineup believed to be labouring under the moniker ‘Super Heavy’, features an eclectic array of artists. A source was quoted by the New York Post: “They just finished a record and their first video and are talking to major labels about a deal. The name for the band at the moment is Super Heavy.”

Another source told the Post, “Each member has a very distinct and different style, but it works. Mick has been recording with Dave for a while, and both worked with Joss in the past. Alongside soul singer Stone, former Eurythmics star Stewart and Bob Marley’s youngest son, Sir Mick is also joined by A.R. Rahman. Known as “The Mozart of Madras,” Rahman was responsible for the double Oscar-winning music for ‘Slumdog Millionaire.’

In response to the Super Heavy claims, a representative for Sir Mick said, “They all thought it would be interesting and great fun to go into the studio and play some music. No video has been shot, no label in place. All a bit premature.”
