The song originally appeared on his 1992 solo LP 'Main Offender', and is being re-released on vinyl for Record Store Day.
Keith Richards has created a brand new video for his 1992 track 'Hate It When You Leave', taken from his solo LP Main Offender.
Teaming up with director Jacques Naudé, who is married to Keith's daughter Alexandra Richards, the visuals show ordinary American people from all stages of life.
From a man mowing a lawn to a child learning how to play the drums to young girls at a cheerleading practice, we only see Richards seated outside near fresh-cut flowers in a vase at the end of the video.
“‘Hate It When You Leave’ is something for your ears and eyes and for your hearts!,” Richards says of the new clip.
The song is being re-released as a red 7-inch vinyl single for Record Store Day on October 24th.
The flip side is a cover of the blues standard 'Key to the Highway' that was originally only available on the Japanese edition of Main Offender.
The Covid-19 pandemic forced The Rolling Stones to indefinitely postpone their scheduled tours.
“I always have this feeling of, like, sudden redundancy, which I have no doubt millions of other people have had, as well,” he told Rolling Stone in September.
“But apart from that, I suppose, in everybody’s mind, we presume that things will look up next year.
The veteran rock 'n' roll band dropped the new song 'Living in a Ghost Town' and releasing a super deluxe edition of their 1973 LP Goat’s Head Soup during quarantine, with Irish actor Paul Mescal starring in the video for 'Scarlet'.
Their 60th anniversary as a band will take place in 2022.
