Paul Mescal has had a busy week. The actor made an appearance at Dermot Kennedy’s concert as a special guest, getting the chance to show off his voice. He then received an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Connell in Normal People. Now, Mescal has announced that he will be starring in the music video for The Rolling Stones’ newest single “Scarlet”! The song is a previously unreleased track featuring Jimmy Page and Blind Faith/Traffic bassist Rick Grech that will be included on the deluxe reissue of the classic Rolling Stones album Goats Head Soup (out September 4).
The official video for Scarlet featuring Paul Mescal will premiere this Thursday 7pm BST / 11am PST on the Rolling Stones YouTube Channel.
