Tom Waits‘ new video not only features the Rolling Stones‘ Keith Richards, it was directed by Bob Dylan‘s oldest son Jesse. Jesse Dylan‘s vision for Satisfied features stark black and white imagery evoking memories of Wait’s Down By Law video.
Waits says working with fellow Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Richards was a new experience. Hennemusic quotes a recent interview where Waits says, “There’s nobody in the world like him. We wrote songs together for a while and that was fun. I had never really written with anybody besides my wife, so it was unique and a little scary at first.”
The website reports the new Tom Waits album Bad As Me “debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at #6, making this the highest debut and the fastest selling (63K+) of Tom’s long and storied career — not only in the US, but around the globe, where it is Top 10 in many countries.”
Here’s Tom’s new video with Keith:
