It looks as if The Rolling Stones will be premiering a new music video on Thursday, July 9, for a song called “Criss Cross.”
The band shared a short teaser video on Wednesday for the song, which will premiere as a music video directed by Diana Kunst, who has worked with artists including Madonna and A$AP Rocky, among others.
Astute Stones fans might recall that “Criss Cross Man” was an outtake from the Goats Head Soup sessions:
There may be a direct correlation, if this follow-up post by the Rolling Stones implies:
The Stones have kept busy in recent weeks, even with the COVID-19 pandemic having ruined the band’s plans for live touring in 2020. The group recently threatened to sue the Trump administration over the use of its songs at his campaign rallies, for one.
Back on April 23, the group’s first new song since 2012 was released, and “Living in a Ghost Town” is a decidedly funky affair:
When that song premiered, members of the band revealed that they had been recording music for a new album prior to the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns:
Mick- ‘‘So the Stones were in the studio recording some new material before the lockdown and there was one song we thought would resonate through the times that we’re living in right now. We’ve worked on it in isolation. And here it is – It’s called ‘Living in a Ghost Town’ – I hope you like it”
Keith- “So, let’s cut a long story short. We cut this track well over a year ago in L.A. for part of a new album, an ongoing thing, and then shit hit the fan Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it, “Living in a Ghost Town”. Stay safe
Whether this “Criss Cross” is from those sessions remains to be seen. Stay tuned!
