A rare video for the 1967 single “We Love You” is being shared by the Rolling Stones.
The song was initially recorded at Olympic Studios in the summer of ’67 and was directed by Peter Whitehead. Newly restored in 4K, the clip includes visual references to the infamous Redlands bust of February 1967.
The video involves Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and singer Marianne Faithfull, the subsequent criminal trial, as well as the drug bust of Brian Jones later that same year. It was inspired by the February 12, 1967 police raid of Richards’ home in Redlands, West Wittering, Sussex. The two Stones were bailed out pending appeal, which they won, after spending one night in prison.
In the time between the February Redlands bust and the court proceedings, Jagger, Richards, Jones and Jones’ girlfriend escaped the unfolding media circus by visiting Morocco. The said trip was an inspiration for the general sound of “We Love You.”
Earlier this month, the Rolling Stones wrapped up their 60th anniversary European tour in Berlin, Germany. Meanwhile, Steve Jordan, who has been filling in on drums for the Stones following the death of their longtime drummer Charlie Watts, confirms that he will help finish the Rolling Stones’ new album.
