Rolling Stones sign up world-famous actress to star in music video for their new song Angry | The Sun

THE Rolling Stones signed up stunning Sydney Sweeney to star in the music video for their hit new song Angry.

Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood invited The Sun to be among the first to hear the explosive track and watch the video – with Euphoria star Sydney making a surprise appearance on Wednesday afternoon at the Hackney Empire. 

The track is the first from The Stones' new album, Hackney Diamonds, which is out October 20 and also features a cameo from Lady Gaga.

Hundreds gathered outside of the concert venue to catch a glimpse of the stars as they prepared to announce the record – which is their first body of original material since 2005's A Bigger Bang.

As well as watching the video with The Stones, American TV host Jimmy Fallon flew in from the States to interview the trio.

When quizzed by Jimmy about the inspiration behind the album, Keith explained: "It got called Hackney Diamonds because we were flinging ideas around for albums and we went for hit and run, smash and grab, and we came up with Hackney Diamonds, which is a combination of them both. We’re a London band."

Mick laughed: "It’s like when you get your windscreen broken on a Saturdays night in Hackney and all the bits go on the pavement."

Ronnie added: "We did it pretty quick. We had ideas flying around and we gathered them all together just before Christmas last year and made a go at it."

Speaking about their late drummer Charlie Watts, who died in August 2021, Keith said: "It’s ever so sad he’s gone it’s different of course. He’s number four. Of course he’s missed incredibly but thanks to Charlie Watts also we have Steve Jordan. 

"He’s been a friend of ours, so it was a natural progression. It would have been a lot harder without Charlie’s blessing."

Mick added: "There are 12 tracks on the album and most of them are with Steven but two of them we recorded in 2019 with Charlie."

The lead single Angry was written in Jamaica and was chosen to lead the album as it was the first one 'that really stuck out', according to Keith.

On stage Mick, Keith and Ronnie also answered questions from fans all over the world.

One cheeky Stones follower asked the secret to a lasting relationship, with Mick – who is dating ballerina and author Melanie Hamrick  – joked: "Not speaking too often."

The record was produced by Andrew Watt who has worked with stars including Dua Lipa and Sir Elton John.

Elton has worked on a track with the band, along with Sir Paul McCartney.

The Stones recorded the album all over the globe, including in studios in Los Angeles, New York, London and the Bahamas.

The Sun revealed last month how The Stones had unveiled the album with a fake glass advert in a local newspaper.

The group’s long-time bassist Bill Wyman has recorded a song on the album, which is dedicated to the Stones’ late drummer Charlie Watts.

The album is the first since his death in 2021 and Charlie's drumming will be heard on the record, with his stand in Steve Jordan providing the rest.

The video for Angry was directed by Francois Rousselet, whose credits include work with Nike, Diesel, Pharrell Williams, and on the Stones' Ride 'Em On Down, from Blue & Lonesome.

The bespoke artwork for Hackney Diamonds is by digital animator Paulina Almira.
