Keith Richards has released the video for his hot new song, “Trouble.” The track is the debut single from his forthcoming album, Crosseyed Heart, due out September 18.
The video shows Richards playing the track in the studio with guitarist Waddy Wachtel and drummer Steve Jordan, and jamming up a storm. Richards, who also plays bass on the track, is in fine form with his guitar work as well as his singing, sounding much younger than his 71 years. Both Wachtel and Jordan worked with Richards on his last solo album, 1992’s Main Offender.
“I had a ball making this new record and working with Steve Jordan and Waddy Wachtel again,” Richards said in a statement. “There’s nothing like walking into a studio and having absolutely no idea what you're going to come out with on the other end. If you’re looking for ‘Trouble,’ you've come to the right place.”
The video is directed by Morgan Neville, who directed the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom, and it was shot in Germano Studios, the New York City studio where much of Crosseyed Heart was recorded.
In addition to Wachtel and Jordan, Crosseyed Heart features appearances by Norah Jones, Spooner Oldham, Aaron Neville, Larry Campbell and late Stones saxophonist Bobby Keys.
