NetflixAn official trailer for the upcoming Netflix documentary Keith Richards: Under the Influence has premiered online at the network’s YouTube channel. The minute-and-a-half clip features scenes of the Rolling Stones guitarist working on his new solo album, Crosseyed Heart, and visiting various U.S. locations that have historical significance to him, including late blues legend Muddy Waters‘ home in Chicago.

The trailer includes segments in which Richards explains what inspired him to work on the new album, discusses his love of American roots music and reflects on his life.

“I grew up with American folk music — jazz, blues, Johnny Cash, Muddy Waters,” Keith says in one scene. “Rock ‘n’ roll’s got nothing on those guys.”

Near the end of the trailer, Richards declares, “Life’s a funny thing…Nobody wants to get old, but they don’t want to die young either. You just gotta follow this thing down the path.”

As previously reported, Keith Richards: Under the Influence will get its TV premiere on Netflix on September 18, the same day Crosseyed Heart will be released. The movie was directed by Morgan Neville, the filmmaker behind the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom.

In other news, Richards has premiered a fourth new solo song online as part of his recently launched campaign promoting Crosseyed Heart. The new tune, a cover of veteran reggae artist Gregory Isaacs‘ “Love Overdue,” began streaming at earlier this week after a temporary blue commemorative plaque was unveiled at 7 Broadwick Street in London, the location of a pub where Richards auditioned for the band that would become The Rolling Stones.

The latest heritage marker is the fourth and final plaque that will be unveiled as part of the promo campaign, which began last month. One marker was unveiled weekly for the last four weeks at a significant site in Richards’ life, and a new song premiered online after each plaque was discovered.

Previous plaques appeared at sites in the London area where Keith lived when he was a child and a teenager, and where he played his first musical gig. The first three songs from Crosseyed Heart that were unlocked were “Amnesia,” “Substantial Damage” and “Robbed Blind.”
