Rolling Stones Arouse Madness in 'Doom and Gloom' Video
Still hell raising after all these years, the Rolling Stones unleashed a rawkous video this week for their "Doom and Gloom" single. Starring "Girl With a Dragon Tattoo" actress Noomi Rapace as a zombie-shooting, breast-flashing bad girl who appears to be losing her mind, the video was shot in a Paris warehouse and directed by Swedish filmmaker Jonas Akerlun.
In the quick paced clip, Noomi wallows in a trash pile, flashes passing motorists, stuffs her face until her head explodes and lays in a bed of money before setting it ablaze. The Swedish actress, who recently starred in "Prometheus," also gets to strut and bounce with the band.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ron Wood stay put on their makeshift stage throughout the video, playing the song's loose, gritty shuffle as madness swallows up Rapace.
"All I hear is doom and gloom, all is darkness in my room," Jagger sings in the chorus. "Through the light your face I see. Baby take a chance, baby won't you dance with me?"
The song, produced by Don Was, appears on the newly released "Grrr! Greatest Hits" and is the band's first new single since 2006's "Biggest Mistake," off their last album of originals "A Bigger Bang."
The boys are gearing up to play London's O2 Arena on Nov. 25 and 29, where former members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor will join them onstage for the first time in 20-plus years. The Stones then travel to the U.S. to play Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Dec. 8 and the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on Dec. 13 and 15.
