Mick Jagger has the role of a “love therapist”-like “witch doctor” in the music video for “Miracle Worker,” the first single by Jagger’s band SuperHeavy, says Joss Stone, one of the members of the band.
As previously reported, SuperHeavy consists of Rolling Stones lead singer Jagger, Stone, Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart, Damian Marley and Oscar-winning “Slumdog Millionaire” songwriter/composer A.R. Rahman.
The music video for “Miracle Worker” (filmed in Los Angeles on June 29, 2011) will premiere on a date to be announced.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Stone describes the “Miracle Worker” music video:
“I like the video, it’s got this whole story that’s running through it. At the beginning, Damian and I have this conversation and our conversation is about a love that’s in a little bit of turmoil. It’s not a love lost, but it is kind of going through something. Then Mick, in the video — and also in the lyrics and the song — plays this character that’s kind of like the witch doctor that puts everything right and, I guess, is a little bit of a love therapist in a way. And then, in the chorus, we all come together, sing it, and everything gets fixed, of course, because that’s the only way that it could possibly happen.”
The reggae-styled “Miracle Worker” single, available in digital format only, went on sale in the United States and Canada on July 12, 2011. The single was initially released in other countries on July 7, 2011.
As previously reported, “Miracle Worker” will get a mastertone/ringtone release in the United States and Canada on August 9, 2011.
“Miracle Worker” has gotten mostly positive reviews from critics. (Click here to read a roundup of reviews.)
Super Heavy’s self-titled debut album will be released in the U.S. and Canada on September 20, 2011, and everywhere else on September 19, 2011.

A preview video showing studio footage of SuperHeavy has been posted on YouTube and on the band’s official Facebook page.
Although there is speculation that SuperHeavy might tour in 2012, the band has not announced any live performances so far. Stone and Stewart will be touring separately in 2011 to promote their respective solo albums: Stone’s “LP1” (released in the U.S. and Canada on July 26) and Stewart’s “The Blackbird Diaries” (set for a U.S./Canadian release date on August 23).
