The Rolling Stones, "2000 Light Years From Home"

It's perfectly fitting that the Rolling Stones have issued a brain-zapping lyric video for "2000 Light Years From Home" in advance of the upcoming 50th anniversary reissues of their classic 1967 dark masterpiece Her Satanic Majesties Request

Though the band is not featured in the clip directed by Lucy Dawkins and Tom Readdy, the visual for their legendary foray into mind-expanding pop features all the touchstones of the era, from rudimentary stop-motion animation to a floating yogi with a third eye, trippy passages back in time to the Egyptian pyramids, dancing mushrooms, groovy space ships and doors that open new worlds of perception.

The Stones' psychedelic head trip album will be reissued as a box set by ABKCO Records on Sept. 22 in with both stereo and mono version of the album on vinyl and a hybrid super audio CD along with a 20-page book with new liner notes.
