Rolling Stones issue video for Ride 'Em On Down starring Kristen Stewart

The Rolling Stones have issued a video for their version of the Eddie Taylor classic "Ride 'Em On Down," from their newly-released blues covers album, “Blue & Lonesome.”

Featuring actress Kristen Stewart of the “Twilight” film series, the clip delivers the tune the band previewed at the opening weekend of the recent Desert Trip festival in California, where they performed it live for the first time since 1962.

“Blue & Lonesome” was recorded over three days last December at British Grove Studios in West London and was produced by Don Was, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

The group played live in the studio without overdubs and were joined on two tunes by Eric Clapton, who happened to be in the next studio making his own record.

“This album is manifest testament to the purity of their love for making music,” says Was, “and the blues is, for the Stones, the fountainhead of everything they do.”

On December 12, The Rolling Stones will debut their 2016 tour documentary, “¡Olé, Olé, Olé! A Trip Across Latin America”, in nearly 300 US theaters.

The project captures the group’s road trip across 10 Latin American cities, combining live performances with behind the scenes footage as it culminates in the historic tour finale with a historic free gig in Havana, Cuba before 1.2 million fans.

The trek marked the Stones’ first in the region since 2006’s A Bigger Bang Tour.
