A trailer for the upcoming Rolling Stones release Totally Stripped, an expanded, multi-format version of the band’s 1995 unplugged album Stripped, has premiered online. The 30-second promo video includes brief interview segments with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, as well as clips of the group performing and behind-the-scenes footage.
The Stripped album featured a combination of tracks that The Rolling Stones recorded live at studios in Tokyo and Lisbon, Portugal, and concert performances from shows the band played during its Voodoo Lounge Tour at small venues in Amsterdam, Paris and London. Totally Stripped contains a new documentary of that takes an in-depth look at the Stripped project, as well as an album featuring both previously released and unreleased performances from the aforementioned concerts in Amsterdam, Paris and London.
In the trailer, Jagger comments on the difference between performing in a club as compared with a large venue, noting that “a twitch of an eyebrow will suffice, whereas in a stadium it’s like the frantic arm-waving constantly.” In addition, Richards maintains that The Stones are “a club band [that] just got bigger gigs.” Touring keyboardist Chuck Leavell and Stripped co-producer Don Was also appear briefly in the video.
Totally Stripped will be released on June 3, and will available as a DVD/CD or SD Blu-ray/CD set and as a DVD/two-LP or SD Blu-ray/two-LP vinyl package. In addition, a deluxe five-disc edition of the release will be sold, featuring the CD and DVD or SD Blu-ray, plus full-length videos of the three Stones concerts captured for the Stripped record.
