We’re about a month away from The Rolling Stones releasing their brand-new, blues inspired album Blue & Lonesome. The Stones have promised a full on blues injection, and a time machine of covers paying tribute to some of the greatest blues artists to ever grace this earth!
In anticipation of the new album, the Stones have released a new music video for the lead single “Hate To See You Go.” The music video is shot in what appears to be Chicago, Illinois, a mecca of early blues music and artists. The video shows the streets of the city, the skyline and explores the people and culture surrounding it. In addition, the video includes shots of the band recording the song.
The track is a cover, and was originally performed by Little Walter. Guitarist Keith Richards has stated in interviews that the new album will include a lit of “Chicago blues,” therefore it’s appropriate that the first video for the album, be shot in the city that inspired it!
Check out the awesome video for yourself down below, and let us know what you think!
