The Rolling Stones have shared a brand new video for their previously lost song from 1974, ‘Scarlet’. Starring ‘Normal People’s’ Paul Mescal, the clip sees the actor tearing around Claridge’s in London.
The recently unearthed track was recorded in the seventies with the help of Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and now comes complete with a video to match their raucous effort.
The newly released song ‘Scarlet’ is one of three previously unreleased tracks to feature on the new upcoming deluxe edition of Goats Head Soup, which arrives on September 4th.
The new box set also comes complete with a fully remastered edition of the 1973 album as well as demos, outtakes and unusual mixes from the time. The set also comes with a concert film formerly known as the Brussels Affair, shot in Brussels, Belgium, on October 17th, 1973.
“My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session,” Richards said of the unusual recording in a statement earlier this year. Featuring both Page and Traffic’s bassist Ric Grech. “They were just leaving, and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay.”
“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.‘”
