The Rolling Stones song ‘Scarlet’ remixed by The Killers

The Rolling Stones have released a new rendition of their song ‘Scarlet’ which has been remixed by The Killers and Jacques Lu Cont.

The previously unreleased 1974 song, which features Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, was finally shared by The Stones earlier in the summer. “I remember first jamming this with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie’s basement studio,” recounts Mick Jagger of the song in a statement. “It was a great session.”

Since then, the iconic rock band have been rolling out various different creative reinventions of the song. After sharing the official visuals starring Paul Mescal, The Stones then released one edition which was remixed by War on Drugs’ frontman Adam Granduciel.

Now, as the band continue to dive deep into their lost ‘Scarlet’ effort, The Stones have teamed up with The Killers and Jacques Lu Cont. “My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session,” Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards says in a statement about the song.

“They were just leaving, and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay,” he added. “We weren’t actually cutting it as a track; it was basically for a demo, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it, but it came out well, with a lineup like that, you know, we better use it.‘”
