The Rolling Stones plan to record their first album in three years and may go back on the road, a publicist says.

The band's battling leaders, guitarist Keith Richards and singer Mick Jagger, had been pursuing solo careers lately.But they apparently smoothed over their differences during a recent stay in the Caribbean, said Paul Wasserman, Richards' spokesman.

"Nothing is official yet, but it looks like it's going to happen," said Wasserman. "Keith was down there. Mick was down there. And they talked about writing some songs. They might have even written some already."

The album would be the second in the group's $28 million, four-record deal with CBS, following the 1986 album "Dirty Work." The tour would be their first since the record-setting 1981 tour that brought in $54 million in ticket sales.
