The video for the Rolling Stones’s cover of Eddie Taylor’s “Ride Em on Down” was just released and it stars Kristen Stewart in a deserted L.A (no traffic, if you can believe that), dodging zebras, and blasting the Rolling Stones with the windows of her vintage car rolled down.

The Francois Rousselet-directed video further sees Stewart showing off her dance moves while she fills up the gas tank. Who knew she had it in her? According to Rolling Stone, the magazine, it was filmed over just two days in L.A.

“It didn’t take much more than a few words to get me amped on the idea,” Stewart said. “The Stones. A 65 Mustang. Alone in Los Angeles. And the shoot was just as dreamy as the idea. We tore LA apart in a day and we had one hell of a soundtrack.”

“Ride Em on Down” is the first single from the band's album of blues covers, Blue & Lonesome, also available to stream in full today. The 12-track album features covers of songs by Little Water, Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, and Howlin’ Wolf and even guests Eric Clapton on two tracks: “Everybody Knows About My Good Thing” and “I Can’t Quit You Baby.”
