Kristin Stewart Feels the Need for Speed in the Rolling Stones’ New Music Video, ‘Ride ‘Em On Down’

1 minute read

For her latest role, Kristen Stewart is taking a walk—or rather, a ride — on the wild side, as the freewheeling star of The Rolling Stones‘ latest music video.

The track, a cover of Eddie Taylor’s 1955 song “Ride ‘Em On Down,” is the first single off their new blues cover album, Blue and Lonesome, their first studio album in a decade. In the video, Stewart spends most of her time zipping around an eerily empty Los Angeles in a bright blue vintage Mustang GT.

In between Stewart speeding around L.A., we’re also treated to the sight of her buying beer, eating a lollipop, and having a sultry solo dance party at a gas station like a badass. The only time that the Cafe Society actress slows down is when she bizarrely encounters a zebra while doing donuts in a deserted river basin, a la Thunder Road.

Watch the full music video above.
