The Rolling Stones have released a stylish new lyric video for their '60s classic "Ruby Tuesday."
With illustrations and a typeface drawn from the time of psychedelia, the clip is a modern-day throwback.
Written largely by Keith Richards, “Ruby Tuesday” was inspired by then-girlfriend Linda Keith, who had recently left him for a poet named Bill Chenail; soon thereafter she began dating rising star Jimi Hendrix. In his 2010 autobiography, Keith recalled, "That’s the first time I felt the deep cut... The thing about being a songwriter is, even if you’ve been [screwed] over, you can find consolation in writing about it, and pour it out... It becomes an experience, a feeling, or a conglomeration of experiences. Basically Linda is ‘Ruby Tuesday.’”
The single became the Stones' fourth number-one hit in the U.S.
