The Rolling Stones unveiled a mind-bending new lyric video for “2000 Light Years From Home” in anticipation of the upcoming 50th anniversary reissue of Their Satanic Majesties Request. The new box set arrives September 22nd via ABKCO Records.
The Lucy Dawkins and Tom Readdy-directed clip begins with a slow zoom into the wide-open third eye of a yogi, which serves as a portal to a new dimension. Using collage-style animation, the clip moves through a constantly changing psychedelic universe where the lyrics from “2000 Light Years From Home” mingle with cut-outs of astronauts, ancient explorers, demons, flowers, monks, city skylines, can-can dancers and swimmers.
The 50th anniversary edition of Their Satanic Majesties Request is available to pre-order. The expansive set celebrates one of the Rolling Stones’ most divisive albums as it found the group forgoing their blistering rhythm and blues sound for pop psychedelia. The new set includes stereo and mono versions of the album on vinyl and hybrid super audio CD, as well as a 20-page book featuring new liner notes from Rob Bowman and photos from the original cover shoot.
