The official video for the Rolling Stones’ track “Scarlet” (previously unheard until this year) is set for release on Thursday Aug. 6, and it features a surprising guest: Emmy-nominated actor Paul Mescal (of Normal People fame). The trailer, released earlier today, shows a disheveled Mescal sitting at a computer in London’s Claridge’s Hotel, where the video was shot. Directed by the duo Us, the video will premiere Thursday on YouTube at 7 p.m. BST at this link.
The track itself, released on July 22, features Jimmy Page and Rick Grech, and will be included on the upcoming re-release of the 1973 Rolling Stones album Goats Head Soup.
