Kristen Stewart rocks out hard in the music video for the Rolling Stones’ new single, “Ride ‘Em on Down.”
In the video, which was directed by François Rousselet, we see Stewart tearing down the streets of Los Angeles in a vintage blue Mustang, weaving between lanes as the hard-driving blues-rock song plays in the background.
The song is the latest single off of”Blue & Lonesome,” the Stones first studio album in over ten years. Recorded in just three days in London, the album was produced by Don Was and The Glimmer Twins for Interscope Records.
It was recorded in December last year at British Grove Studios, just a stone’s throw from Richmond and Eel Pie Island, where the Stones started out as a young blues band playing pubs and clubs.
Their approach to the album was that it should be spontaneous and played live in the studio without overdubs. The band — Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood — was joined by their long time touring sidemen Darryl Jones, Chuck Leavell and Matt Clifford and, for two of the 12 tracks, old friend Eric Clapton, who happened to be in the next studio making his own album.
The band’s last studio album was “A Bigger Bang,” released in 2005. It peaked at number three on the U.S. charts and was certified platinum.
“Blue & Lonesome” is available starting today wherever music is sold.
