The Rolling Stones are paying tribute to their late drummer Charlie Watts with a new video for the song “Living in the Heart of Love”. It’s the first of nine previously unreleased tracks from the band’s upcoming 40th Anniversary remix of the band’s Tattoo You album in the bonus disc “Lost & Found”. The collection is slated for release on October 22 via Polydor/Interscope/UMe.
The video was directed by Charles Mehling and filmed in Paris. It features actresses Marguerite Thiam and Nailia Harzoune partying with their friends and enjoying the Parisian nightlife. These scenes were interspersed with vintage reels of Rolling Stones, and many of them focus on Watts.
The MV then ends with the words “Charlie Is My Darling”, a reference to their 1966 concert movie.
The Rolling Stones recently played their first show with Watts.
“This is our first tour in 59 years that we’ve done without our lovely Charlie Watts,” Mick Jagger told the crowd. “We all miss Charlie so much. We miss him as a band. We miss him as friends, on and off the stage. We’ve got so many memories of Charlie. I’m sure some of you that have seen us before have got memories of Charlie as well. I hope you’ll remember him like we do. We’d like to dedicate this show to Charlie.”
