Keith Richards today released a new video for his 1992 classic “Hate It When You Leave” from his critically acclaimed second solo album, Main Offender.
Directed by Jacques Naudé, the video portrays that the simplicity of life is the most beautiful thing in the world and pays tribute to the people and places that one loves, especially at a time when family, friends, and lovers have remained apart.
Naudé (married to Alexandra Richards, Keith’s daughter), filmed ordinary Americans from all stages of life for this new video, from a man mowing the lawn to a boy learning to play drums and girls in a cheerleading practice. Near the end, we see Keith sitting in a garden with fresh cut flowers.
“‘Hate It When You Leave’ is something for your ears, eyes and heart!”, Richards commented on the new video clip to Rolling Stone magazine that premiered the video exclusively:
The video clip is to celebrate the exclusive vinyl release on October 24 (Record Store Day). This 7 ”red vinyl single includes, in addition to“ Hate It When You Leave ”, the rarity“ Key To The Highway ”which was only released on the Japanese version of the Main Offender album.
On November 13 will be the worldwide release of Keith Richards And The X-Pensive Winos “Live At The Hollywood Palladium” which will be available as a Super Deluxe Box Set, remastered CD, 2 remastered 180g LP, 2 180g LP limited edition in red and digital.
