Rankin/RollingStones.comThe Rolling Stones are back with a brand new video for "Doom and Gloom," one of the two new tracks the group recorded for its just-released GRRR! compilation. The Jonas Ackerlund-directed clip stars Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), who is featured in a variety of surreal, bizarre and provocative scenes that echo the track's ominous apocalyptic lyrics. Interspersed throughout the video is footage of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts miming the song on a gritty-looking soundstage.
As the video begins, Rapace is seen sleeping in a bed beneath a neon version of The Stones' tongue-and-lips logo when she apparently begins to have a disturbing dream. The actress is then transported into various wild scenarios in which she crash lands a plane, is chased by zombies, writhes half-naked in a pile of garbage, is showered with money while clad in a skimpy bikini and gorges herself until her head explodes.
Later in the clip, Rapace suddenly shows up with, and as part of, The Stones -- first in Watts' place and then in Jagger's. So just what is this video all about? Watch it now at VEVO.com and decide for yourself.
