New film will be available from September 18
A trailer for Netflix’ new Keith Richards documentary has been revealed.
The film is directed by Morgan Neville, the Oscar winner behing 20 Feet From Stardom, and will be available on Netflix from Friday, September 18.
Richards’ history is delved into during the film, as well as highlighting the process of recording new solo album ‘Crosseyed Heart’; his first solo record in 23 years. “With the Stones going into hibernation, I was itching to get back into the studio and cut a few tracks,” he says in the trailer.
“I know who I am. But I realize, people think Keith Richards is smoking a joint, bottle in his hand, cursing the fact that the liquor store’s closed,” laughs the Rolling Stones legend, sitting amid an obligatory haze of cigarette smoke.
‘Crosseyed Heart’ follows Richards’ previous individual efforts ‘Main Offender’ (1992) and ‘Talk Is Cheap’ (1988).
Meanwhile, Richards recently said that The Rolling Stones could start work on a new studio album next year.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the guitarist said that he is eager to get his bandmates in the recording studio as soon as they have finished their scheduled tour dates. “I’m trying to get the Stones into the studio,” he said. “But I don’t quite honestly see it happening this year.”
He went on to add: “After we do South America in February and March , I’d love to get in the studio in April. But I know what those guys are like. When they finish a tour, they don’t want to do nothing!”
