If reports are to be believed, A R Rahman is all set to form a band with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. The band is named Super Heavy, featuring Rahman, Mick Jagger, Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart, singer Joss Stone, and Bob Marley's son Damian Marley.

It would be the first time that Jagger will associate with any other band nearly after 50 years of forming of the Rolling Stones.

Rahman confirmed the news that they're working on some pieces together. He tweeted: '18 months ago Dave Stewart, Mick Jagger,  Damien Marley, Joss Stone and me experimented at a studio in Los Angeles, trying to write songs which had meaning...We had a couple of more sessions after that tying to perfect every song that was written and presently we have around 16 to 18 songs and all the songs have a world sound by contributions from all of us. Dave's and Mick's incredible musicality and Joss' soul singing, Damien Marley's Jamaican influence and philosophies and me bringing musicality from my world. It's all too early to talk about this but I guess you guys should know something atleast.'
